To observe the particle with your eyes requires
bouncing a photon against the particle
that then interacts with you eye.
By bouncing a photon or other particle against it,
the state of the particle is changed.
Some interaction with the particle must occur
before you can perceive it.
but aren't photons bouncing off of it anyway whether they go into my eye or not?
i guess my point is, i am not doing anything but looking at it,not trying to measure it - not affecting it in any way, scattered photons of light either enter my eye or they don't through nothing of my doing, if they enter my eye and i see them, how does that change it's state?
that is why i ask is he using the words measure and observe interchangeably
