Columbia Professor, Dr. David Albert, discusses the problems with the assertion that consciousness affects reality.

The subject begins around the 2:45 minute mark in Part 1. Notice his comments that the consciousness affecting reality argument has not been taken seriously for the last 30 years in the scientific or philosophical literature. Also, notice the argument he makes in Part 2, starting at the 5 minute mark (and on into Part 3), as it pertains to the impossibility of a convergence between knowledge about the physical and metaphysical world.
