In many cases there are very similar behaviours to quantum effects which are based less in physical processes and more in terms of the information communicated. SIRDS or random dot stereograms, optical illusions, and Simpson's Paradox, are examples which display complementarity dualism and to some extent, the collapse of a virtual representation into a more real and measureable one.Take for instance SIRDS (Single image random dot stereograms) where a pixel has alot of similarity with a qubit in the sense that it is representing the virtual superposition of two points on a virtual 3d object using a real 2D projection. A qubit in a similar manner represents a superposition in "a higher dimensional virtual space" like the SIRD pixel (that the quantum superposition is not "measureable" like a superposition of radio waves of different frequencies, is what seems to differentiate it from more classical ideas of superpositions which can be parametrized into more than one state). Can we say for instance that the perceived 3D image of a SIRD is an analog of quantum superposition and the collapse of that higher dimension into the lower 2D perception is analgous to wavefunction collapse ? The 3D image is virtual and "observed" dynamically while the 2D image is real and "measureable" statically. SIRDS/SIRTS SIRTS are Single Image Random Text Stereograms, and seem amazing in terms of the small amount of text needed to produce a IMO, rather stunning higher dimensional image: SIRTS Simple optical illusions also can divide observers subjectively if two observers disagree on what they see, even though we understand the nature of that difference to some extent, the question of reproducibility of this kind of physical _observation_ has none-the-less become problematic since in this case, the physical image has two "valid" and complementary interpretations ?: Optical Illusions Another case where observer's are divided on "how they ask a question" rather than "how they view an answer" is more quantifiable and yet still may yield two "valid" yet complementary results for the same data: Simpson's Paradox Polarization tagging in SIRDS: In a linearly produced SIRDS the rotation of the SIRDS 90 degrees destroys the interference pattern in the same manner as crossing polarizers in Young's experiment with photon tagging (polarizer over each slit). Space-time pointers: Wavefunctions are temporal pointers which are necessarily probabilistics when dealing with the future since your are pointing to an unknown tangible in the future. Geometric-phase (spatial wavefunctions) address spatial pointers in the same manner as memory pointers in classical computers. Spatial tunneling is the passing of a spatial pointer. Temporal tunneling is the passing of a temporal pointer. Space-time tunneling is the passing of a space-time pointer.
