Collapsing the wave function is a term that scientists use to describe the phenomena where waves of energy collapse to form a particle when they are observed or measured in an experiment.  “Collapse” is the word that science uses to explain this theory,  but another way to describe it would be to say that waves of energy “appear” as a particle when they are observed or measured.   This concept is at the root of how science currently believes that the physical universe is formed.   For example,  the atomic structure that we studied in high school of a nucleus being orbited by electrons,  similar to the sun being orbited by planets,  it not at all the way scientists currently view these tiny forms.  Instead of tiny particles,  the electrons exist as probability waves of energy.   When an individual electron is involved in an experiment, such as when it collides with another particle in an accelerator,  only then does the electron collapse its wave function and appear as a particle.  Until then, it was a probability wave.

Think about that for a moment: probability wave.   The word “probability” implies that something might exist or has a chance to exist.   So in other words,  these dancing fields of energy waves are not real unless some future event occurs.

One theory is that human beings are responsible for the wave function collapse.   In the book, “Biocentrism,”  author Dr. Robert Lanza  proposes the idea that the physical universe doesn’t exist without life.  There is no collapse of the wave function without living being.   The future event that causes a wave of energy to move from “probable” to “actual” is some type of interaction with a living being.

From my own experiences,  I believe this concept of life being involved in the instantaneous creation of the universe is the same concept that I have written about on this blog regarding creating basketball universes.  Each of us creates our own version of the universe using a consensual reality pattern that is shared by every living being.   Each new “now” for a person involves energy waves that collapse to form the matter of existence.   Without living beings,  the universe exists only as dancing probable energy waves.   And,  I believe that probable energy waves are what makes up the zero-point Akashic field — the nothingness from which we came before we were born;  the same nothingness that we will return to when we leave these collapsing wave function bodies behind upon our death.
