Young's Double Slit Experiment - A Different Conclusion
I'm not going to describe this experiment. After all, it's been discussed endlessly and even by some of the worlds top physicists. What I'm going to do is give an information theoretic interpretation.
Consider the experiment using electrons.
If you don't measure information at the slits then the results are consistent with the electron being a wave.
If you do measure information at the slits then the results are consistent with the electron being a particle.
Is the electron a wave or a particle? It's neither. And it doesn't matter. The results depend on the information you extract from the experiment. Nature adapts depending on what you ask for. Meaning that reality may be different for different observers. Some physicists might find this very disturbing.
