    Double slit experiment

    I was wondering if anyone had any references either in a book or on a credible place on the internet that goes through the troubleshooting or method of how people came up with the idea that it was the observer that changed the results of the experiment.

    Everything I read kind of just "says" it was the observer that made the wave into a particle pattern with no information on the methods used in the observation. How do they know the methods of observation didn't somehow change the results and not the "Observer" him or herself?

    One electron is not going through two slits. That is all there is to it.

    not sure if you've seen this one:

    i also think the measuring device might be the one interfering with the electrons somehow, the other stuff seems a little bit far-fetched.

    here's the wiki page:

    So there may be hope for you guys. Ha-ha.

    If you had to learn both ways at the same time in school. You would see it my way. Especially when it was stated openly that the atom would be hidden from American students on national TV in the sixties.

    They said it would only be hidden from violent minority types. But we were thinking at lunch time kids would talk, and they would just end science for all.

    This was not a new notion, in any way shape or form. It was started before World War One. It grew during World War Two. But only in some parts of the country that were often just getting shcools. Because many would not send their kids to a federal school, after the proof tax feuds against government. And the outlawing of manufacturing alcohol on your own land.

    They finally made laws against knowledge itself in America in 1973. As England had been doing all along.

    Listen don't feel bad, I had been told by some really tough dudes, that had similar knowledge as myself. That maybe it would be better if we just don't do anything. Maybe it will all blow over. Or lets leave it in the hands of Jesus.

    Either a handful of brave men were going to take back America, or whole generations would be exposed to nonsense for science. You have to decide which way it went.



    Sincerely,
