Although you’d be hard-pressed to find it in a college text, physicists more or less agree on the existence of what they call the Zero Point Energy, a random sea of fluctuating frequencies of energy that permeate all of the three dimensional spacetime.
It has been shown that the Zero Point Energy can be influenced by an electrical charge, and Human Beings are electromagnetic creatures.
When it is not being watched, energy can be thought of as an infinite ocean of random frequencies.
When we observe it in a certain way, the energy becomes a particle. We form the sea of random energy into what we think, just by looking at it.
