    • 1.5 Schrödinger’s Cat and Superposition of States

    • Would a stream of neutrinos (instead of a stream of photons) also collapse the superposition to dead or alive?

    • This is incomplete: there is a quantum trigger that breaks the poison recipient based on the decay (or not) of a radioactive particle. This is essential.

    • Didn’t Schrodinger use this concept to illustrate the ludicrous nature of the concept of superposition? Is there a difference between the superposition of possible outcomes and probability of each of the possible outcomes?

    • Shouldn’t there be a quantum trigger to open the poison box ?
