Is reality merely a byproduct/offspring/construct of the, lucid, conscious mind?

I have been made aware of some ideas and theories from informal sources about things that have shaped my ideology and perception. These ideas include mandelbrot fractals, reality resulting from consciousness (observer effect), observer problem in quantum mechanics (measurement problem), quantum superposition (microtubule computers),revealing god to a conscious observer(god helmet), and a few other unmentioned thought provocative ones. I share similar views concerning consciousness and ubiquity constantly interacting with our perception of reality. Is this able to be proven or disproven through conventional methods.
