Consciousness and the Double-slit Interference Pattern

Six Experiments

A double-slit optical system was used to test the possible role of consciousness in the collapse of the quantum wavefunction. Each test session consisted of 40 counterbalanced attention-toward and attention-away epochs, and data was contributed by 137 people in six experiments, involving a total of 250 test sessions. The results appear to be consistent with a consciousness-related interpretation of the quantum measurement problem.
