Using the classic double-slit experiment, the Copenhagen interpretation, and common sense, Bob Berman will [try to] convince you that your kitchen doesn’t exist after you leave it at night. Humorous but thought-provoking, this lecture will show why any Grand Unified Theory must bring the observer into the equation.
