There's two very technical terms for this: local realism and non contextual realism. Local realism is the claim that physical objects have their properties even if they 're not perceived. Non contectural realism says particles themselves don't exist when they're not perceived. I think a better framework is to think about this as a data compressing, air correcting code that we're using. If you think about space time and particles as part of a data structure for data compression, ad air correcting code as part of our sensory interspace, i think it will be much more useful may take us intoa, deep water.
