...if you ignore modern physics, then yes:  it is a "fuck you" to classical physics.

What is that movie?

It is a segment from... "What the Bleep do we Know"

It makes very strange claims. Seems to twist the facts substantially. Appears to misquote people and place important facts out of it's original context.

I stopped watching it after the Art show regarding snowflakes was intermixed with scientific speculation.

It falls into the same category as "The Secret".

But I am suspect that there is truth to the observer aspect regarding the wave/particle nature of the double slit experiment. I am simply curious as to what the cause is without resorting to an illogical metaphysical conclusion.

It must be the measuring devices which change the result of the experiment. If not... what is it?
