Thank you, Massimiliano! This was very useful! I am writing an article and found your article through a Google searh for "Observer Effect." Specifically for my article I am interested in references that would support three claims:

1) "where your attention goes, energy flows" - perhaps the Observer Effect supports this in that the change in reality caused by the observation of it (giving it attention) is only possible through an input of energy, in this case from the observer. The late Wayne Dyer said "If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."

2) if you give a semi-imaginary object, such as a label or name, enough attention (send enough energy), that energy could eventually become large enough to coagulate matter into a real object?

3) if don't give an object attention, it will eventually disintegrate because it will not receive the energy required to sustain it?

As I am not a physicist, any insights you can provide on this would be most appreciated! Thank you!

Have agreat week!
