stooopid question #1, i understand how actually measuring/metering could alter an objects state, but... how can observing it(under the assumption it means with your eyes) change it's state???
After spending a semester in physics (many eons ago) measuring light as a particle, and measuring light as a wave function, I stopped asking those kinds of questions. OTOH, I do think of a situation as a probability cloud, until I learn the actual outcome of the situation, at which point I think of the cloud as having collapsed to the final outcome.
