Before answering this question, it is important to look at what makes the material world.
Is Reality composed of small pieces of matter?
The molecules of matter are composed of subatomic particles. Protons and electrons, account for only 0.000000000001% of “reality”. In other words, 99.99999999999% of the atom consists of empty space. The part that is not empty is composed of quarks that are part of a field consisting of vibrating lines that create elemental particles depending on their vibration frequency.
We interact in a world of physical objects, but that’s because our brain interprets sensory data in a certain way. At the smallest and most elementary level, the idea of “physical reality” is non-existent. The father of quantum mechanics Neils Bohr said: “Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real. If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet.” When you touch your hands with each other what is happening is empty space touches empty space. The material components do not have a physical structure.
This is important to understand. If you think of the material world as a world made up of small particles like balls, then the idea that consciousness creates reality does not make any sense.
When we realize that reality is a cosmic construct of energy and empty space then it becomes clear that our thoughts and signals recorded in our brain have the same characteristics in the most elementary form. Our thoughts are also an activity of the universe and all activities take place in the quantum space before they occur in reality.
Consciousness is the biggest problem that science has to solve. There is no way to explain how something material such as a chemical or physical process can create something non-existent such as experience. There is no reason for subjective experience or consciousness to exist. Nature would work just as well without the subjectivity. We are trying to scientifically investigate the origin and nature of consciousness. We find assumptions that consciousness and reality are not so different things as our physical science has made us believe.

Below you will find some principles of quantum mechanics listed in the book “The Self-Aware Universe” by Theoretic Physics Professor Dr. Amit Gozwami.
A quantum object (eg an electron) can be in more than one location at the same time. It can be seen as a wave that spreads out into space. Also, it can be found at the same time at different points of the wave.
A quantum object may cease to exist at one place at the same time to go somewhere else. This, without making an intermediate journey. This is the quantum step. Teleport.
3) Remote Action
The appearance of a quantum object due to our observation simultaneously affects the twin accompanying object. No matter how far it is. If an electron and an atom’s protons are thrown, what happens to the electron, the same or exactly the opposite will happen to the proton. This is the quantum distance action. Einstein called that tremendous move.
4) The effect of the observer
A quantum object cannot be considered manifest in the reality of time and space. This, until it can be observed as a particle. A quantum object exists as a wave until it is directly observed. Consciousness can make the particle size function collapse. (the effect of the observer).
This last point is very interesting because it means that without an observer, no collapse is caused and it is naturally not displayed, in a state of pure probability. Observation not only ruins what is to be measured but produces a result. This is verified in the experiment that is known as the “double-slit experiment”. In this experiment, the presence of a conscious observer managed to change the behavior of an electron from wavy state to particle state. This is known as the ‘observer effect’ and shakes the foundations of what has been thought so far that it is true about the natural world.
