Does this suggest to you (as it does to me) that the operation of the quantum-scale world does not depend on the existence of a conscious observer?
To probabilist, it is certain that all scales up to and including even cellular structures do not depend on the the existence of a conscious observer. This event only occurs provided that no other agent is introduced that effects the behavior of the cell, chemicals, molecules, atoms, sub-atomic structures down to the quantum level. By 'conscious' I assume you mean 'human' and not a machine.
