6d$($A$ The Copenhagen interpretation(In this interpretation, the only thing that is assumed to exist prior to an observation is a mathematical wavefunction that exists over all space.

My mind-stream consists of another stream of observations.
When our observations are simultaneous, they result from the same sequence of wavefunction collapses.
However, the wavefunction represents all possibilities and therefore predicts only the probability, not the certainty, that you will observe something. Similarly for me .
It does not guarantee that what you see is the same thing that I see.8PH,
For example& & suppose you and I set up an apparatus to drop no more than one B-B onto a table top (all described by the wavefunction), but we don t know in advance where it settles on the table top.
Now, suppose you and I simultaneously observe the table top.
What prevents you from seeing a B-B at one place on the table while I see it in a different place?

.Consistency requires that collapse be nonlocal//(The Copenhagen interpretation requires that wavefunction collapse happens over all space simultaneously so that your observations are consistent with my observations, no matter how far apart we are. This is called nonlocal collapse.
But, Einstein s special theory of relativity says that no physical effect can travel with a velocity greater than the velocity of light.
Thus, there is no physical explanation for anything that happens over all space simultaneously, so there is no physical mechanism for nonlocal collapse.
Therefore, nonlocal collapse can only result from a nonphysical mechanism.\P\,$ What is it that& r& is nonphysical and can cause collapse to occur over all space simultaneously?

$A possible answerIt might be Awareness that causes wavefunction collapse.
Awareness is not an object. It is what is aware of objects.
Since It is not an object, It cannot be observed.
Because it is not an object, it cannot be localized in space and time. Therefore, it is nonlocal.
Because it is nonlocal, it could collapse the wavefunction so that what you observe is consistent with what I observe.Z," AConclusions`Each mind-stream appears to be separate from every other mind-stream.
But, if your mindstream is really separate from my mindstream, what allows your mind-stream to communicate with my mindstream?
Answer: We can communicate with each other because we only appear to be separate.
The Awareness that is aware of your mind-stream is the same Awareness that is aware of my mind-stream. Thus, we are not really separate.
