Read just yesterday an article by Jay Bennett written for Popular Mechanics. He wrote on the hot topic of life as a simulation and its complications in a multi-verse. He began by posing the questions, "does the universe exist as a concrete structure if there is no one to observe it?" Or, is the cosmos a fluid, infinite amount of possible realities until the moment it is measured? This is one of the subjects discussed between Danish physicist Niels Bohr and Albert Einstein.
He comforted us by restating that when two particles interact with one another, they can become an entangled pair, sharing some of their properties with each other even as they travel a large distance away from one another. But like all quantum states, when one of the particles is observed, the wave function collapses and the entanglement is broken, affecting both particles; instantaneously, regardless of distance. Measuring one particle can therefore influence the other particle faster than the amount of time it would take for light to travel between the two.
Einstein was unquestionably right about one thing: Our theories of quantum mechanics are incomplete. Perhaps one day, someone unknown genius of the future will do for particle physics what Einstein did for astrophysics and what Newton did for classical physics.
I could be that unknown genius but only as a human being a created being by a higher intelligence that controls the simulation.
The first problem begins with the first question above, "does the universe exist as a concrete structure is there is no one to observe it"? Well, the answer is no if we consider that the universe is something that has meaning to us as we exist not only in it but as we peer out at it from our vantage point. Can that question be answered with a simple Yes/No? And, the answer is NO!
It cannot exist as a concrete structure unless someone observes it. So, who is observing it? Someone that created it or someone that is part of the creation. Rather both! If we were to only accept the later... that we observe it and so it is concrete it is only true in terms of agreement reality. What we as a group of 'human observers' see and agree upon.
If it is only that it is concrete because of a creator, then we know that we are also part of the creation and as part of the creation have the ability to observe not only ourselves but all of creation. And, that essentially means that we do observe the creator in ourselves.
If we go down the blackhole that the universe is not there unless someone looks at it, then being a part of the universe, we are not there either; until someone looks at it/us. This causes a problem for atheists but not for those who recognize and accept the Creator. If the Creator looks, we are and it seems the Creator has a constant gaze.
