That reference exemplifies an entangled double-slit experiment in an attempt to make more observations about the event. None of the data even remotely suggests that matter is conscious. When I asked for references, I was asking for the "hard evidence" that you are referring to. That's not true. The interference pattern depends on the size of a physical structure because that determines if it can exist in more than one place simultaneously long enough to produce such a pattern. The double slit experiment can be reproduced with any number of small structures. Photons, electrons, atoms, and even 70-carbon atom buckminsterfullerines. The same behavior isn't seen for larger structures (ex. bullets) and the simple reason is that they do exists in multiple places simultaneously and they just collapse so fast that we don't have a means to detect the transitions. On the quantum level, all attempts to observe (that I am aware of) the specific location of a small multi-location particle result in collapse into a specific location (and I think this is what you were referring to). Why the multi-location and collapse events happen are the unknowns in current physics right now. That's a very specific claim and please evidence for it. You might be right. So, again please show me the hard evidence you spoke of. It should be a simple experiment: definition: consciousness - *some definition resembling present day knowledge* hypothesis: all matter is conscious test design: how the test was performed and what are the controls? test results: what were the results of the test test conclusion: all matter is conscious because it consistently met the criteria for consciousness. Just to cover my bases, I checked through the list of Nobel Prize winners and didn't find an entry for discovering all matter is conscious. I also checked the some current research work into double slit events and found no such hypothesis. Not even a speculation.
