This study possesses the ambition to further investigate and indulge in the world of quantum mechanics and its complexities and possibly ascertain a solution for one major issue attributed to it: the measurement problem, which refers to, in layman's words, the issue of how and why a wave function collapses. According to papers published during the late 1930s, the measurement problem was an issue that could be partially resolved by utilizing the loosely shaped ideas of the Copenhagen Interpretation, which was later coined by Werner Heisenberg during the 1950s, as well as the newborn Pilot-Wave theory, which was further developed and brought to prominence by David Bohm’s work during the 1950s. However, due to the deficiency of new information from modernized research modalities and experiments, these papers lack the new approaches proposed by various physicists, which places a circumscription on the aptitude possessed on this topic. Hence, through this paper, I possess the ambition to utilize the theories of Many Worlds (MWI), QBism, and the further developed Pilot Wave Theory (PWT) to hopefully solve this issue. Contrary to what has customarily been believed, the measurement problem can be partially solved by twisting the functioning of quantum mechanics according to certain theories, which would then act as a base for them and substantiate their claims regarding the measurement issue, such as the MWI theory going against traditional quantum theory and claiming that particles possess definite properties, with many other theories doing something similar, which I will be articulating upon in this paper. To deduce this prolonged abstract, I hope to provide you with a higher magnitude of perception on this infamous issue and probably resolve some of your pertaining doubts on quantum physics.
