Quantum physics now clearly shows a range of seemingly bizarre things to be true: that the same particle can be in many different places at the same time, that things change when we observe them, that particles can be entangled and act the same even though they're millions of miles apart.
All of this challenges our assumptions about how our world works - namely that there is an observable set of events that happens independently of us in the role of the 'experimenter'. Does this imply an action of creation in the act of choosing/observing? Is there no such thing as unbiased observation that doesn't set up an observer effect? And if we are indeed creating our world, what does that say about our ideas about God and religion?
Ways to make our world more wonderful.
