- If the act of observing changes the thing, then all observed things are not their true value or original state;
- If the act of observing changes the thing, then acting to observe a False thing makes it True? Acting to observe a Nothing makes it Something?
- Because one acts to observe whether something exists, and doesn't find it - then the observation destroyed it?
- If the observing act can be said (somehow) to conclude the thing didn't exist, doesn't the act of attempting to observe establish it's speculated existence to the degree that one tried very hard to observe it? It's there because we suspected/believed enough to try? (Observing Nothing Makes Something, and the Quality of the Something is organized by the attempt to observe it? (ala, Brin's "The Practice Effect"))
- Can the attempted observation of Nothing then Cause Something? Creation...
- Is an attempt to observe or understand or 'know' knowledge therefore destructive of the knowledge itself?
- Why haven't one of these tomes been written?
- "Observation and Sensitive Dependence", or,
- "Observation, the New Environmental Vector".
Therefore, refraining from observing preserves the Natural State and this becomes the new banner slogan for Greenies the world over?
The certainly always extensible speculation. lol
