What the Bleep Do We Know!?
 To offer concrete evidence for their 
claims, the lmmakers point to discover 
-ies in quantum physics. But does physicsreally provide the proof for these claims?Quantum physics describes the so-called “observer effect,” which refers to theimpact the mere act of observing can haveon the phenomenon being observed. Phys-icists speak about this as the “collapse of the wave function.” The wave function de-scribes the probabilities of a particle beingobserved in any of its possible states. Whenan observation is made, the wave function“collapses” and the particle is observed inone particular state. A popular interpre-tation of this is that the act of observationaffects physical reality, “freezing” it into acertain state. Hence the claim that you cre-ate your own reality, and the importance of holding a positive vision of a desired out-come.The original formulation, however, putforward by Nobel Prize-winner Wern-er Heisenberg, states that is your
