Can someone explain the quantum physics-consciousness connection? In the double slit or quantum eraser experiments, the system behaves as a whole, with some apparent time independent traits. Invoking some kind of time independent but still causal physics, the problem could be simplified. But to include consciousness in the picture, we need better evidence. So I'm going to propose the following version of the double slit experiment.
If consciousness was actually involved, a person could create or destroy the interference pattern by just looking at the slit measurement result even after it is recorded. To emphasize my point, imagine that the experiment is spread across 3 days. The first day experiment is done but the results are recorded into computer memory and no one looks at it. The second day someone comes in and just looks at the results of the slit detector. He/she could even encode some message by closing and opening his/her eyes while looking at the results. Since consciousness is involved, it should effect the interference pattern even after such an indirect and delayed measurement (by consciousness). Then on the third day a second person could just look at the interference pattern that was recorded two days earlier, and still see the interference pattern being created and destroyed and even read the encoded message by just looking at the slit measurements on the second day. Does this sound reasonable to you, or what am I missing?
