And Finally:
For amusement, we have invented a diary, as written by Schrodinger’s cat.
– Just for your info:
Schrodinger popped a cat into a box with a little bomb, that may, or may not explode and kill the cat. With both placed inside and the lid closed, Schrodinger had no way of knowing if the little bomb had gone off, so had no way of knowing if the cat is/was, at that moment, dead or alive….. so he worked a theory, that it could be BOTH dead and alive at the same time.
– Just for your info:
Schrodinger did this as a thought experiment (no cat was actually subjected, with bomb, to a box)…. but we have ignored that last bit and amused ourselves with the thought that it actually did occur… and the cat’s point of view was recorded…. So here is:

Schrodinger’s Cat’s Diary


If you find Schrodinger’s actual thought experiment intriguing, then there is a Youtube video by MinutePhysics, which gives a great brief with drawn sketches to take you through the ‘thought’….. good luck.

    Schrodinger’s cats diary is brilliant idea! hahahahahaha. Love the note to self at end. (v.rude = v.funny). I would move too!!!!!!!!!!

    Interesting thought though, about “measuring”. Without “measuring”, we cannot pass the info onto anyone else. Can we? I don’t think we can, so measuring MUST be done. Somehow, or you can “say” anything.

    He should have put a camera in the box?? or at least a window?? or wired the cat up for vital signs?? MEASURE like a scientist SHOULD o)

    MUST measure! – don’t you think?

    I love the Good Friend v Best Friend. Very true!

    The cat diary idea is great and funny humour idea :o. I’ve heard the two-states-at-once. It seems more wafty poetry, than proven physics, although I realise it is indeed just a thought experiment and I suppose it does provoke thought, beyond the comfort safe thinking

    and all with a bit of good fun.
