OK. I claim that informania is the mental desease associated with the compulsion to attach meaning with newly created words, and consider the result to be an increase of the total information in the world. It is rampant in the advertising business.

As an aside, the requirements for disentanglement are that one or the other separated EPR particles have a known location, no matter how slight the physical perturbation to make the detection. What changes is the amount of in formation in the world- it increases. As a result the particles are no longer entangled.

Same sort of thing with double slit experiments. If a particle is known to be at one or the other slits, then the intererence pattern disappears, true for slight or even zero physical perturbation of the particle.

That says explicitly that our world is a conscious world that can know things like when a particle has been detected, and then disentangle or collapse the waves to particles. No instruments required.

My God is the consciousness that knows whenever the location of a particle is revealed. These processes seem to lie outside the usual bounds of physics.
