His name is Erwin Schrödinger

answer Sep 28, 2016 by Smriti
Yes, you are correct (as in Schrödinger's cat. The determination of which state: live, dead, or both was impossible to ascertain unless the box was opened.  So with the box closed, the presumption is the magical/mystical conclusion of both states being valid).

Often times, it is the surrealistic imagination of the physicist that attracts brilliant minds to that field of study. Stephen Hawking being a prime example of a modern day Schrödinger.
Thank you for explaining, I should have done it, but I am simply that lazy : )
Laziness is simply a form of relaxation and meditation which allows the imagination to run wild and come up incredible new ideas.  Think of it as a positive attribute leading to new discoveries.
Haha,  I always have, I always will think like that
So....., keep up the good work (of laziness, that is).  And thanks for your comments.
