Using Quantum Physics to Explain Human Cognition and Behavior
The complexity of the mind is always one step ahead of our ability to observe and describe it.
The act of answering a question can move people from wave to particle, from uncertainty to certainty. In quantum physics, the “observer effect” refers to how measuring the state of a particle can change the very state you’re trying to measure. In a similar way, asking someone a question about the state of her mind could very well change it.
