Scientists show future events decide what happens in the past

IF you think the world’s weird, science just proved it. Again. It seems the stuff we’re made of doesn’t actually decide what to be — and perhaps even when to be — until we look at it. Australian physicists have been looking at subatomic particles.

No, they haven’t shown we live in a Matrix. Nor have they found evidence of magic or miracles. The large-scale universe we live in is a completely different place, where particles and waves are real, predictable and solid. But in the infinitesimally small worlds of quantum theory, reality itself appears to be a problem.
