Some people of the scientific community are self-repressed from thinking outside the box and from the willingness to find out (cognitive dissonance), by saying “yet another pseudo-scientific drivel about the supposed connection of quantum theory and consciousness”.
While open-minded scientists who are not afraid to express their ideas and findings, have a lot to say:
Excerpt from BBC’s article:
The physicist Pascual Jordan, who worked with quantum guru Niels Bohr in Copenhagen in the 1920s, put it like this: “observations not only disturb what has to be measured, they produce it. We compel [a quantum particle] to assume a definite position.” In other words, Jordan said, “we ourselves produce the results of measurements.”
“Simply by observing a particle’s path – even if that observation should not disturb the particle’s motion – we change the outcome.”
There are actually numerous theories which are based on the epistemology of quantum mechanics, which suggest that the correlation exists. Unfortunately though, for some reason this information is being repressed and avoided to be researched, probably for social reasons, including religious and social engineering issues, and also personal and social-image related issues.

An interesting video from TED that may give you a clearer view about why that happens:
We are a part “of”, and not a part “from” the rest of nature.
