Reports are out that reality is, well, really weird--in a way that raises interesting questions about quantum theory. Why is this important to the CTC community? Well, it's the process--the data collection process--that is interesting. (Hint: Use the concept for data mining and data analysis.) And, anyway, it is kinda cool. Even if some people say "Well, duh." Sometimes, science has to catch up with common sense.
Depending on how you phrase it, quantum theory tells us that you cannot know everything about the world; that you can know the position or the speed but not both of certain subatomic particles, for example; and that observation mucks things up. So, someone thought up a way about finding out if reality exists if it is not observed--sort of answering the question as to whether a falling tree makes a sound if no one hears it.
And what did they do? They didn't observe the reality they created. At least not directly.
