EP4 Quantum Experiments Indicating a Lack of Objective World
Show Notes

This episode will exclusively focus on the two quantum experiments I mentioned in the previous episode, but did not explain in detail.

These are experiments that suggest that perhaps there might not be an objective, observer-independent reality out there.

The first is Wheeler's Delayed Choice experiment, and the second Wigner's Friend Experiment.

You can find a link to last year's paper on Wigner's Friend Paradox here,  it is entitled "Experimental rejection of observer-independence in the quantum world", by M. Proietti et al.
