I was thinking about wave functions and how they behave, see if you can explain this :

If an artist made a small model car, and placed it in a steel box and buried it where then absolutely no life form could observe the model car inside. Then the artist dies telling absolutely no one of his model car, 200 years later someone by random digs up the box and see's the car inside, how did the wave functions know to collapse to form the shape of the model car made of particles, when the only observer who knew about the model car to make that model car possible is now dead ? In a simpler term, how did the wave functions know to collapse to make the particles take on the physical shape of the model car when the only life form that knew its existence is now dead.

In theory, when the artist died he should of took all knowledge of the model car with him no longer making for it possible to exist ! But an observer 200 years later can still see the collapsed wave functions of that car !

Every particle is a wave as well, this wave is a wave of probability- when observed the likely probability is played out in the form of a particle, the point is I'm getting at, is how did the probability know to play out as a particle in the shape of the model car, when the only person to have observed it had died, but yet the probability of the particles to make up the car still exists. I hope I have made it more clear.

This to me says that the wave functions or the universe holds memory, even after the only observer ( the artist ) died matter still knew to take on the shape of the model car for the next observer.

Or, the less probable theory - The artist now exist in a higher dimension where he still has observed memory of the model car which is why the wave functions know to collapse into the shape of the model car.

What do you think ?
