Quantum Observations: Keeping Schrodinger’s Cat Alive (VIDEO)

Most of us might not be able to write out Schrodinger’s equation, but many of us have at least heard of Schrodinger’s Cat. With the familiarity of this unfortunate feline, one must also be aware of the fact that anything truly IS possible; just as Quantum Mechanics shows us by demonstrating this cat can exist in multiple states simultaneously.. i.e. dead or alive.

If you are not familiar with Schrodinger’s Cat, it’s a thought experiment (that was thankfully just that and was never actually carried out), in which a cat is placed inside a box with a piece of radioactive material that may or may not decay and kill the cat within the hour. Now, after the hour passes we want to know the state of the cat. Common sense tells us there’s a 50/50 chance that the cat is either dead or alive, but in Quantum Mechanics, until we open the box and collapse the wave function by observing the cat, the cat exists in BOTH states simultaneously!

And down the rabbit hole we go…


This may sound like some whacky fairytale, but as the following video points out, Schrodinger’s Cat is quite real, and the “superposition state” (simultaneous existence) is what allows the computers we use everyday to exist!

The Schrodinger’s Cat thought experiment is an excellent reminder of how “energy flows where attention goes” and that if things go unlooked at in your life, they may remain in a constant state of flux or always feel unfinished and incomplete.

But just as atoms can exist as a wave and a particle as the same time, know that while you are part of this dualistic realm, you are not ruled by it and can collapse the wave by making a choice and choosing to looking at things in your life. When we observe the areas we most avoid, we clear the weeds and allow room for fresh vegetation to bloom. We create space and expansion for new possibilities and growth.

Perhaps the greatest lesson that fabled feline born in the mind of a brilliant Austrian physicist can teach us is this…to remember that there IS no box to begin with.

    On existence, why Schrodinger’s cat rely on those radioactive materials, and afterall that box was not opened in discussion and guessed results by 50-50. Schrodinger’s observation does not explain the existence and the force that affected eg in case of electron the nuclear force. Hence, we create space and expansion for new possibilities and growth.
