Quantum Physics News - Reality Does Not Exist When We Aren't Observing It

Physics Web:
"Some physicists are uncomfortable with the idea that all individual quantum events are innately random. This is why many have proposed more complete theories, which suggest that events are at least partially governed by extra "hidden variables". Now physicists from Austria claim to have performed an experiment that rules out a broad class of hidden-variables theories that focus on realism -- giving the uneasy consequence that reality does not exist when we are not observing it."
I guess our thoughts really do create our reality.

Additional thoughts?

I've heard the Physicist O. Goswami speak to this issue, and of course "What The Bleep" film dealt with aspect of it as well.

If we see it it's there, seems like a proper convenience. What does a Giraffe see? Not likely what we do, since it hasn't the appropriate memory references. Some animal brains are much larger than ours, but they haven't the refs either.

The universe continues to engage our curiosity without providing all the information that leads to resolution of our questions.

Try "Quantum Entanglement".... very entertaining. Of course, I'm just an observer here.

What is the difference between quantum physics and mechanics? Are these considered a true science? If so, why?
thank you for your help

It's technical semantics. I like this thread from Physics Forum; hope it helps.
