Thought Experiments 6/6

Six weeks on and I bring you the final episode of this mini series of the Open University‘s fine work on Thought Experiments.

Concluding the series with week 6: Schrödinger’s Cat

Quantum mechanics challenges our whole perception of reality, and along with it this short video presents some real food for thought.

Dead?  Undead?  Decayed?  Not decayed?  Superposition?  Quite the conundrum for you to consider this weekend – happy thinking!

If you want to read this whole series back to back then you’ll find them all neatly ordered via this link.  Hope you enjoyed them, and to give you a little heads up I’ll be looking to run another weekly mini series of related posts early in the new year!
