while bored with nothing better to do, i went on a youtube random video watching spree
i came across the science experiment thats called the double slit experiment.i found this to be truly interesting.
how ever, i believe i must be misunderstanding something, maybe some of you can clear a few things up for me.

my current understanding is this: scientist shot out particles through a single slit, the particles acted just as should be expected, they passed through the single slit and hit the wall behind the slit, they all fell into a vertical line.
then, scientist decided to add a second slit, once they added the second slit, things became strange.
the particles did not act the way that is expected, instead of passing through both slits and forming 2 vertical lines behind the slit, they instead, acted as a wave, the particles some how became waves, once the waves hit the double slits, they interfered with each other causing a unique pattern that can only be made by waves that are interfering with one another.

believe it or not, things get even more strange then this.
once the scientist decided to try and monitor the particles with a device, the particles suddenly began to act as expected, they formed 2 vertical lines behind the slits.its as if the particles actually went through both slits, at the same time, as if they were in 2 places at once.
scientist even fired off particles one at a time thinking maybe the particles are interfering with each other, how ever, this was not the case, even while fired one at a time, they still showed the characteristics of being a wave.
this seems to indicate that the very act of consciously observing the particles some how manages to collapse the waves of possibilities into reality.

so does this really mean that our consciousness truly has the ability to effect reality in a literal sense?
do we really manifest our reality subconsciously with out even realizing it?
how can the particles possibly know that they are being observed?
i must be misunderstanding here, i mean, if this experiment means what i think it means, then why is this not globally known?
why has none found a way to use this knowledge to advance our current level technology?
if i am not mistaken, this experiment is solid proof that there is much more to life then whats in front of us.
in a way, this can kinda be considered " supernatural" or "parascience".


this may be a little off topic, but ill tell you guys anyway , and i would like to point out that i do not believe myself to be crazy or anything, i understand many of you will refuse to believe anything that you have not experienced or has been proven, this is fine, it is healthy to be skeptical.so here goes.

since childhood, i have always naturally did what is known as " lucid dreaming" ( this is when you become aware of yourself while dreaming, you realize that your dreaming and you become able to manipulate your dream at will and do anything you want, its really amazing)  any way, one night while i was going to sleep, my intent was to start my dreams consciously, so that i can be lucid and do anything i want in my dream world, how ever, something else happened instead, i ended up floating in my room, hovering above my body, at first, i thought i was dreaming, to test this, i began trying to manipulate my surroundings, nothing happened, also, this felt way different then dreaming, it was more real then dreaming, i was more alert, i was more aware of everything, this was truly amazing.
this experience felt so real, i was convinced that it had to be real, how ever, i had to test it, so what i did was this, i floated into my kitchen ( i even passed right through my wall with no trouble or resistance) once i got to the kitchen, i began to read the nutrition facts and other small print that were on a cereal box, i read all the print that i known for a fact that i have never took the time to notice or read before. i memorized as much as i could, i then returned to my body, i got up and went to the kitchen, grabbed the cereal box and began to verify my experience, and to my amazement, every single detail matched perfectly.
the reason why i bring this subject up is because during another experience, i found that i am able to manifest my thoughts, literally, for instance, if i imagine a apple, then intend for that apple to manifest in my hand, it will do so, it feels completely solid, to get rid of the apple, i simply use my imagination and intent to make it vanish.it all boils down to my conscious mind creating the reality that i experience, just as the double slit experiment suggest.i have a strong feeling that my out of body experience and this double slit experiment are related in some way.

Perhaps when you were verifying your experience, you were actually still dreaming.
Can you next time imagine to have another moon for the earth, so your experience can be shared with everyone else?

im not sure what you mean, what would visualizing a second moon help achieve?
do you mean that since it may have been dream, i should try to manifest something like how i would do in a dream, in order to verify its legitimacy?
if so, then that is a good idea, how ever, i have found that while in that strange out of body state, i am able to manifest my thoughts just like i  can do while lucid dreaming.i know i was not still dreaming when i confirmed the info i read, see, after i verified what i seen, i stayed awake for hours after, i took a shower, ate my last hot pocket, did a ton of googling about this subject, watched a movie, then i went back to sleep, when i woke next morning, my last hot pocket was gone (because i ate it) i remembered everything that happened in the movie i watched, thus, proving i was not asleep dreaming doing all these things. i am aware that " false awakenings" do happen from time to time, how ever, i am a lucid dreamer, almost every single night i lucid dream, i am very, very familiar with the concept of dreaming, i can easily determine dream from reality even while im dreaming.
i literally came strait from the kitchen to my pc, there was not a single chance of me falling back asleep and dreaming this up.
i understand something of this nature is hard to bring yourself into believing it, this stuff is not mainstream knowledge and is not wildly known or accepted, there is only a handfull of people who have even truly experienced such things, scientist do not have any way of confirming this subject at this current point in time, how ever, quantum physics are indeed aproaching this subject at a rapid pace, i think its only a matter of time before science has advanced enough to tackle such spiritual concepts.

I just want to see if your ability to control your dream depends on whether it's ordinary things (such as holding an apple) vs extraordinary things (e.g. duplicating moon).
BTW, I just found a video related to this issue.
youtu.be/XUece-2WmuM?list=PL96C35uN7xGI9HGKHsArwxiOejecVyNem
have you tried the method shown there?
it's simply read a text in your dream, then look away somewhere else, and then look back at the text to see if the text changes.
