And yet all the theories are based on observed phenomena. In fact that's one of the requirements of a theory. It must agree with what we observe. And we observe a chair to be real.
And even more importantly, quantum theory deals with events at a quantum level. At the macroscopic level that we all exist in, quantum effects disappear.
Since this isn't a thread about quantum theory I'll leave it at this... Look up quantum teleportation to see why quantum theory does not
imply that thoughts can effect matter, or be transmitted instantly (nevermind transmitted at all).
