Can Consciousness Cause Wave Function Collapse?

Here, I’ll be talking about some questions and possible answers about Schrödinger’s thought experiment, wave function collapse, and whether consciousness causing wave function collapse is a better explanation than measurement causing the collapse.

These questions and answers refer to quantum theories, but this text is intended to be neither comprehensive nor scientific about those theories. This is a philosophical inquiry after reading “The Collapse of the Wave Function” pages 80–85 and “Does Consciousness Cause Quantum Collapse” by Kelvin McQueen…
