Contents: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
The quantum measurement problem refers to the well-established but still mysterious fact that quantum objects behave differently when observed than when not observed.
AIM
To help empirically inform this problem, we conducted an experiment to see if mental attention directed toward a single-photon double-slit system would cause a change in the interference pattern.
METHOD
Photons arriving at an interference pattern minimum were counted per second while participants were asked to direct their attention toward or away from the double-slit. If consciousness "collapsed" the quantum wavefunction through the passively act of mental observation, then during attention-toward periods we predicted that photon counts at the minimum would increase.
RESULTS
After a pilot study and six formal experiments, the results showed a modest (2 sigma) decrease in photon counts, opposite to our prediction. However, some of the experiments resulted in a strong count decrease and others in a strong increase. The combined variance across experiments was associated with a 4.5 sigma increase, indicating an unstable, anomalous effect.
CONCLUSION
These studies did not provide evidence for a passive collapse of the quantum wavefunction, but rather a more active effect possibly modulated by the context of the observation, created by the feedback used to mentally "connect" the participants to the optical system. This steering effect seems reminiscent of a quantum Zeno or anti-Zeno phenomenon.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Six experiments were conducted using a single-photon double-slit apparatus to test von Neumann's notion that the quantum wavefunction is “collapsed” by what he called a psychophysical interaction. Individuals were asked to direct their attention toward or away from the optical system while receiving information about the number of photons arriving per second at an interference fringe minimum. Overall the experiments found evidence supportive of an interaction that appears to “steer” the wavefunction to either reduce or to sharpen interference fringes. This outcome informs efforts to unify subjective and objective modes of apprehending the world because it suggests that these two apparently different ways of knowing may be complementary aspects of a unitary phenomenon, analogous to how a Möbius strip appears to have two sides, but when examined is found to have only one. The correlations observed in our experiments can be interpreted in two main ways: as a form of mind-matter interaction, which implies a dualistic model, or as arising from a common source, which implies a monist model. We propose that a monist model is a more satisfying explanation.

Psychophysical interactions with a double-slit interference pattern: Exploratory evidence of a causal influence

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
An experiment we conducted from 2012 to 2013, which had not been previously reported, was designed to explore possible psychophysical effects resulting from the interaction of a human mind with a quantum system. Participants focused their attention toward or away from the slits in a double-slit optical system to see if the interference pattern would be affected. Data were collected from 25 people in individual half-hour sessions; each person repeated the test ten times for a total of 250 planned sessions. “Sham” sessions designed to mimic the experimental sessions without observers present were run immediately before and after as controls. Based on the planned analysis, no evidence for a psychophysical effect was found. Because this experiment differed in two essential ways from similar, previously reported double-slit experiments, two exploratory analyses were developed, one based on a simple spectral analysis of the interference pattern and the other based on fringe visibility. For the experimental data, the outcome supported a pattern of results predicted by a causal psychophysical effect, with the spectral metric resulting in a 3.4 sigma effect (p?=?0.0003), and the fringe visibility metric resulting in 7 of 22 fringes tested above 2.3 sigma after adjustment for type I error inflation, with one of those fringes at 4.3 sigma above chance (p?=?0.00001). The same analyses applied to the sham data showed uniformly null outcomes. Other analyses exploring the potential that these results were due to mundane artifacts, such as fluctuations in temperature or vibration, showed no evidence of such influences. Future studies using the same protocols and analytical methods will be required to determine if these exploratory results are idiosyncratic or reflect a genuine psychophysical influence.
