It sounds like nonsense to me.
In fact, anyone who has that attitude is going to be really disappointed to learn that quantum physics does not act rationale.
the idea seems to have sprung from Wheelers delayed choice experiment

Quantum physics is perfectly rational in terms of it can make predictions that can be used in the real world.QM is not easy to accept in that it doesn't sit well with our everyday experiences of nature (on a macro level). It does still qualify for the Occam's razor principle, in that it is still currently the simplest model of the sub-atomic scale that matches the evidence.The problem some contributors to this (scientific) site have is not that some more 'imaginative' poster's claims are outside the norm of recognised science, but that those ideas are not self-consistent, make no sensible real-world predictions or are more complex than a current theory.Quotethe idea seems to have sprung from Wheelers delayed choice experimentI don't understand how this experiment has any baring on the LHC 'choosing' not work. If nature or a theoretical creator abhors the concept on mankind finding the Higgs particle, It/She/He is going to be working outside the rules of 'the observer effecting the outcome' anyway.
No. Quantum mechanics is anything but rationale.With rationality, comes predictability.Quantum mechanics is based on predictions, but most predictions that have been made and varified go against all understanding of a classical causal world, which makes it highly un-rationale. Nearly any scientist will agree with this assertion, so i must protest yet again.
I can mathematically describe a universe with laws that are rational, but which would allow no common-sense assumptions for us.

It makes rationality because 2+2=4, and the integral of x is (x_f-x_i) - so these are rationalities we can understand.
