Is it the awareness of the observation that causes the collapse.
Assuming you meant to put a question mark there (?): What's the difference between the observation and the awareness of the observation?
Would say an animals observation operate the collapse in the same way.
Assuming you meant to say "Would you
say" and end it with a question mark: No, I would not say that.
I know theres a system that uses wavefunction collapse on bank security.
Not sure what relevance that has to the question at hand, even if it were true (which I seriously doubt).
