Uh, Okay, so, uh, I was watching a rerun of The Big Bang Theory tonight, and one of the characters is trying to explain Schrödinger's cat to someone who is left to assume that the kid who plays piano from Charlie Brown had a cat...

So, anyway, after looking it up, I'm left to assume that if a tree falls in a forest, then their must be birds, animals, and other trees to hear it, whom could either be looking on with empathy or with misguided disapproval...

OK to try to help out a little,  as Mr. Spock said once "If I release a hammer on a planet with positive gravity I do not need to see it to know it fell."

If a tree falls it will make a sound.  This is demonstratable by the laws of physics. Philosophy does not  matter.


As to schroedinger's situation there is an unpredictable chance that the poison will be released.  Due to the uncertainty principle the decay of a radioactive particle cannot be perfectly predicted.  The status of the box cannot be determined until it is opened. There is a question as to what happened in the box.

There is no doubt whatsoever if a tree falls it makes a sound unless,  of course,  it falls in a complete vacuum.

Not that Schrödinger even meant his cat to be taken quite the way people have, it does have one big ass almightly flaw in it.

The cat inside the box is damn well aware if it is alive.

And yes, if a tree falls in a forest, noise will be generated from the transistion of energy types from one to another regardless of the local existance of anything with the ability to hear it.

I've alkways hated the bit with the cat. I love cats. Why coudn;t he have used something no one would care about if it got poisoned? A roach, a flea, a lawyer, etc?

To answer your issue DA, i suppose we could have had a machine that would flip a coin after the boc was sealed. The status of the coin, heads of tails, would be unknown totally as a coin has no awareness.

Some scientist once wrote a tongue in cheek reply into Dear Abby claiming that since sound is but the arbitrary interpretation of vibration, unless there were something to create sound out of the broadcast vibration of the tumbling tree, it would not teeeeeechnically be sound.  Lookingup

As for the cat, herr S. was silly as well as mean to do that to some poor beast.  I'm with Penny, the cat's alive. Meeow.

I suppose the scientist could be considered correct,  unless we define sound as vibration in the air period,  then it would make sound regardless of whether an  observer heard it or not.
 

But in physics,  Frau R,  many things do depend on an observer,  or at least the possibility of an observer,  a sentient observer.  So far as we know in many ways only a human being can count as an observer.

If you guys think the schroedinger thing is weird,  try this: and it doesn't involve cruelty to a cat. But it might make some people's  heads explode.

7+7=14. 14-1=13. 3+1=4. 13+1=14. 14-7=7.  It all comes back to itself. Aren't numbers bizarre?

It's called 1st Grade Math!  TongueOut

I learned Numerology when I was a teenager. I had a couple of books on it.
Can't recall much of it now...

I took forklift driver training this past Saturday... Didn't knock over any cones...

Hopefully, it'll work out better than that Production Assistant training I took back in the spring...

I never wanted to be a boss or any kind of title when I worked at Honee Bear.
I was fine just running my machine.
I had a lift truck licence too!

The instructor would say he had some stories about this & that, & then would ask if we had any... Fifteen years in warehouse work, my hand went up every time.

Times I've wondered what it would look like if an unlikely character on a forklift showed up in one of those Mad Max rip-offs... I mean, they have those forks on the front, the backs are bulletproof, and they weigh three times more than your car...

Saw a post elsewhere about what was the best decade for horror movies.

For myself I can't decide between the 70's and 80's. Guessing everyone has a favourite period, possibly connected to when they were growing up.
