I refer AD and Reality Uncovered to this must read ARTICLE published by by the American Institute of Physics:

John Wheeler, relativity, and quantum information

From the mid-1950s on, John Wheeler’s “radical
conservative-ism” allowed him to explore without fear
crazy-sounding ideas that often led to profound physical

By three mainstream leaders in the fields of physics and quantum information:

Charles W. Misner, Kip S. Thorne, and Wojciech H. Zurek
April 2009, page 40

And I quote:

"As a
concrete embodiment of “it from bit,” Wheeler speculated that
universes governed by sensible laws could come to be inhabited
by observer–participators. And when that happens, the
observers’ actions, as participators who collect information about
the universe, might actually be retroactively responsible for the
creation of the universe

"Wheeler’s “universe as a self-excited
circuit” stands causality on its head, but it has a close
epistemological tie to his delayed-choice experiment."

"To dramatize the role of the
observer–participator, he
proposed his now famous
delayed-choice experiment,
which shows that
even the past of a quantum
state can be altered by the
observer–participator’s choice
of what to measure.

Charles Misner is professor of physics, emeritus, at the University of Maryland.

Kip Thorne is Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics at the California Institute of Technology.

Wojciech Zurek is a laboratory fellow at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Two were John Wheeler’s PhD students, Misner in 1954–57 and Thorne in 1962–65; Zurek was his student in 1976–79 and his postdoc in 1979–81. Misner and Thorne coauthored the 1973 textbook Gravitation with Wheeler; Zurek coedited the 1983 Quantum Theory and Measurement with him.
