That is only true because by definition we can't know about something without observing it. At most that says that we can't know if the wave function would have been collapsed without a person to observe it. Lack of proof does not prove the opposite.
I didn't make that up, I read it.
Plus, how do new theories begin? With ideas.
Yes, but for an idea to be taken seriously it has to have some basis in reality. What observations have you (or others) made that lead you to believe only living things can collapse wave functions? As I said, the fact that we can't observe it happening otherwise (because by definition, we have to observe something to know about it) doesn't mean anything. It is just a fancier version of the question "if a tree falls down in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it still make a sound".
I noticed no answer or acknowledgement of my assertion, just dismissal.
Because you have not presented any facts to back up your idea. You have just asserted it, nothing else, which gives us nothing to respond to. You made the assertion, the burden of proof lies on you.
Also, if life is the only thing that can collapse wave functions, how did the universe work before life existed?
