Yes but some founders of QM don't think so..how come?

 

 

For example? Usually this comes down to misunderstanding what is meant by "observer." I don't think consciousness has ever seriously been considered as relevant to QM.

Consciousness is an emergent property of countless molecules i.e big or macro stuff. Quantum is about nano-sized stuff, is it not? I don't think quantum at that scale with stuff as big as a brain, does it.

Max planck: I regard conciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as a derivative from conciousness.

 

 

As you are too lazy to provide a reference, I'll do it for you: https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Max_Planck

 

That appears to be a general philosophical position which doesn't necessarily have anything to do with quantum theory. This is a very old idea, known as idealism, that has been supported by many people. For example, Bishop Berkeley:

 

 

whose primary achievement was the advancement of a theory he called "immaterialism" (later referred to as "subjective idealism" by others). This theory denies the existence of material substance and instead contends that familiar objects like tables and chairs are only ideas in the minds of perceivers, and as a result cannot exist without being perceived.

In other words, long before quantum theory.

Then these scientists do not support this idea with science, right?

It's pretty hard to argue at this point that consciousness is anything other than some emergent property of information processing in the brain. And I agree, quantum phenomena is only relevant at scales much smaller than that of neurons.
