I'm not a physicist; I'm just curious about what would happen.
According to this video "Explained ! The Double Slit Experiment" (at 2:50):
"Somebody decided to leave the detectors on but just not take any data. [...] So if it was also going to a magnetic tape - there was no magnetic tape loaded. [...] And what do you think happed? They got this. They got the diffraction pattern."
So the act of measuring (beeing concious of the data) destroys wave-form pattern?
If so lets consider these cases:
- What if I'd throw a dice after the experiment to decide if I should look at the data or to destroy it? (e.g. look at the data if the number on dice is even)
- What if the information about measurement would need to travel longer period of time than the particle would need to hit the wall?
To above cases: Would it mean that information travelled instantly - faster than light or that "the particle can look into the future"?
