Schrodinger's Cat
« on: February 12, 2013, 08:50:40 pm »
So I'm reading Quantum Psychology by RAW, and it occurred to me that Schrodinger couldn't have had a cat.

Has anyone ever seen a cat that doesn't meow?  You'd obviously know if the cat is alive because you'd hear it meowing in the box if it's alive.

My cat loves to climb into boxes, and sooner or later he always meows.

Yes, I think I get the whole yes/no/maybe point of it and the whole bit about collapsing state vectors and all that stuff, but still...

just sayin' ...

Um.

Yeah.

Despite the well-known hatred physicists have for cats (throwing them out the window to demonstrate conservation of angular momentum, flinging them across frictionless surfaces, etc), no cat was ever jammed in a box with cyanide.  Maybe.

At least, such a thing hasn't been observed.

Well, that would sort of defeat the purpose.
