Could the universe exist if there was no conciousness to observe it?

It would still exist for sure.....just as nature would still exist if there was no humans left here on earth.

The tree that falls in the woods when no-one is around still makes noise.

As long as men are free to ask what they must, free to say what they think, free to think what they will, freedom can never be lost and science can never regress.

The thing is, if the universe branches, everything would have to be copied because small choices have big effects. What is copying it? And what role does the concious observer play in this? Could the universe exist if there was no conciousness to observe it?

I think it would do, I think we're just another little part in this Cosmos. I'm not sure I follow you eric on the reasoning that everything would have to be copied? Are we talking the physical universe or are you bringing timeline and events into the matter?
