There's another video on youtube that explains it better in a fraction of the time.

Yeah, my dad explained this to me when I was a child. What makes the thought experiment so cool is that it's so easy to understand the concept of it, but it's impossible to "solve."

If the cat goes in dead- the cat cannot gain the potential to be anything other than what it is- if live, the cat is a potentially dead cat. Potential DNE- the chicken came first- the egg is merely a potential chicken.

"...then moved to dublin where he had a very colorful career, and even father an illegitimate child. But that has nothing to do with his cat."

...am I the only one who found this hilarious?

I love this theory and to see 'Prof' talking about this. Watch this channel often on YouTube.

If you could start with the cat alive or dead, why even put a cat in there in the first place? Did I hear that part wrong?

Yaaay physicists with funky hair are always awesome.
Perhaps some day I will be a physicist with funky hair...
I've always liked this experiment.

Thought so, Burton_Ian. Thanks for clearing that up.

Here's an easier experiment: Flip a coin, shoot the cat.

Bunny, upon accepting a position as a theoretical physicist it is a term of their contract that they must have ridiculous hair.

Are physicists required to have crazy mad scientist hair or is that just a popular look among them?

"...fled to the UK then to Dublin where he had quite a colorful career, and even fathered an illegitimate child; but that has nothing to do with his cat." Oh quite the contrary professor... I think that has EVERYTHING to do with a cat.

Finally! I get it! I thought I was missing something, the whole point is that it's not supposed to make sense. I got completely lost with the 2 slot test last week. I came to the conclusion that there must be two protons in the tube to start with. But the point is we can't completely define quantum objects...there is a grey area.

Thought experiment? The hell with that; how about a REAL experiment? I'll take a box and put a goddam cat in it, then I'll pulverize it with a 4-iron. I can conclude with 100% accuracy that the cat will be dead... an I will not even have to open the door on the box to find out.

There are two observers in Schrodinger's experiment, the cat and the detector.

5cats It might be that teeny-tiny bits of matter can exist in dual-realities, but not kitties.


Sure they can, with catnip!

Ok... This would be like.. if you put a murderer and a negotiator in a box.. will the negotiator talk his way out of being murdered, or will he be killed. You wont know until you open the box!!! This is soooo facsinating!!!
