Another Schrödinger’s cat meme

It’s the end of a very long week. I’ll be leaving tomorrow afternoon, so there will be a Caturday felid, a Hili dialogue, and perhaps a few sundry treats before I take off for the Chicago-Warsaw leg. In the meantime, have a cat:

From Super-Fun-Pak Comix by Ruben Bolling:

Or, in Hili’s case, napping and lapping cream.

Schrödinger did indeed devise the famous felid Gedankenexperiment in 1935. I always wonder if it would have become so popular if he’d used a d*g instead.

    If that pizza is greater than that which can be imagined, then is the cat Jesus?

    Or if Sheldon Cooper hadn’t popularized it :)

    Perhaps Schrödinger had a (multitasking) cat…

    What happened ??? You spelled dog without the asterisk – does this mean a new respect for canines ?

    JAC – have a safe and enjoyable trip to Poland. Take lots of food pictures.

    Be sure to pet Hili for each of us…

    No, dogs would not have been popular. Cat states generally describes entangled states. Cats do this best: two things simultaneously while looking like they do nothing.

    Dog states? No good. Dog years sounds good…sound like the time is not fair.

    Stop kicking the cat.

    If consciousness causes collapse, and if Schroedinger’s cat was in superposition, then Schroedinger’s cat must not been sufficiently consciousness to cause collapse.

    Of course, Schroedinger meant this as a cautionary tale. You have to be a nong to think that consciousness causes collapse and an idiot to think that Schroedinger’s cat was not sufficiently conscious to cause it.
