It doesn't. The waves never "collapse". Particles don't exist. It is all just waves (fluctuations in fields). And we sometimes see them as particles if we look in particular ways with particular tests that we think we understand.

So why do the interference fringes in the double slit experiment disappear when any of the 2 slits is covered letting us know (observe), which slit the photon went through?

Because interference disappears with only a single slit.

A better question to ask is why a single photon can pass through both slits. That shows the wave nature of the "particle".

But that’s the same thing as saying that a tree makes a sound regardless of, if a conscious entity is around to observe it.
I posit that is unprovable by definition, since men can not be always wrong.

Unfortunately, it often gets confused with: Every men will be wrong at least once. Which is undoubtely true, of course.
