OK everyone - time to put our Quantum Mechanics hat on. In an article published by Julie Hambleton for Smart News on Dec 31, 2023 titled 'Mind Blowing Experiments Say That Reality Doesn't Exist If You Are Not Looking at It' she summarized work done at the Australian National University that suggests the basis for reality depends upon seeing it.
The experiment is actually nothing new - It has been around since the early 1960's courtesy of a Nobel Prize winner physicist Eugene Wigner. Although his experiments were rather crude by today's standards, he demonstrated that what every individual perceives as reality is unique to them. Then in 1978, a physicist, John Wheeler, took things one step further with observing scattered helium atoms and how they reflect light and produced similar results that today are known as the John Wheeler Delayed Choice Experiment.
Fast forward to 2020 at the Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh with a couple of photon experiments to create identical reality simulations in the lab, researchers found that supposedly identical realities actually do have distinct differences.
Without getting into a lot of the technical side of the study, this has forced those in the quantum mechanics physics realm to concede that a singular reality does not exist. It all has to do with how the elements of supposedly identical realities interact at a molecular, atomic, and sub-atomic level to cause variations in results.
So the next time you look at an intentional camera movement image from an ICM Artist, remember that they have not just created a reality for themselves and you, but they have created an infinite number of realities for everyone who views their work. The work just doesn't appear different to everyone who sees it. The work actually IS different for everyone who sees it!!!!
In other words, in ICM reality, trees really can be stretchy. That elasticity is captured courtesy of the ICM Artists' work.
