Divine Light?

"Baumann's book gives an overview of two historic physics experiments performed to determine the nature of light. One, the 'double slit' experiment, proved that light waves behave differently when they're being studied than they do in isolation. The other, known as the 'quantum eraser,' went a step further, showing that light waves can actually anticipate future experiments and alter their behavior accordingly, 'which, from a Newtonian standpoint,' Baumann adds, 'is something that could never, ever occur.'"
