Reading about Quantam Physics and particle observation , if as soon as I withdraw my sight everything becomes a wave again , does that mean nothing stays solid including myself ? If I turn my back on something it no longer exists ?
This idea is kinda scary and I know I probably am not explaining myself very well here , it feels almost like shades of that horrible film Langoliers by Stephen King .
The other thing I read and maybe this should be a separate question , happy if it needs to be reassigned, is , I read that my mind is the mechanism through which God expresses, I have the thought , He ( I use the word God , though Universe is My preferred name ) pulls together all thats needed to create/manifests it , but if He already knows all, and all, already is , then why does he even bother with utilising us to do that .
Sorry if am rambling just extremely confused this morning and it's doing my head in, I am the kind of person who needs to know how things work even though others are able to "just accept " and no disrespect intended, guess that would be a blessing sometimes :-)
Let me redefine my first line as :-
Reading about Quantam Physics and particle observation , if as soon as I withdraw my "attention" everything become a wave , etc . Maybe this makes more sense of my meaning .
In the movie "What the * bleep ' do we know " It goes into Quantum theory And this scene talks about what you describe. It's an interesting movie gives possible answers to what you ask . But you need to be the judge of what you believe.
This answer is marked "community wiki".
you read about a theory
we see what we are able to see

If you were blind, the world would not go away. Your other senses also "observe" and you would hear, smell, and feel the world, and go on observing it, albeit in a different way than if you were sighted. "You" would continue to exist. The world also would continue to exist, in that you would know that your silverware was in its drawer end your telephone would still hang on the wall if you just went to them.
I think you are mixing up quantum physics with just pure observation. We need to operate at a grosser level than quantum physics, or we would go nuts! Even though my table here is mostly empty space on an atomic level, to me, it is solid enough to hold my computer. It is interesting but impractical to think constantly of the space of the table rather than the table.
