Beyond the Cat

“Those who are not shocked when they first come across

 quantum mechanics cannot possibly have understood it.”

Niels Bohr


It's impressive that his cat is more -much more- famous than Erwin Schrödinger.  But it is possible to understand why.

In an attempt to deconstruct quantum mechanics, the brilliant Austrian theoretical physicist proposed an experiment that is not only easy to understand but also gives rise to inexhaustible philosophical discussions.

However, the idea of reversible time, as proposed in his famous equation, is infinitely more interesting than his cat.

Although Bohr fought hard against this ingenious proposition, with something like this: every atomic phenomenon is closed in the sense that its observation is based on a record obtained through convenient amplifiers equipped with a one-way operation, the irreversible temporal evolution must necessarily be associated with the reduction of the wave function.

And there coexist the paradoxes of time and quantum mechanics, where what is done and what is undone; between a rose that is born, blossoms and dies, resurrects, rejuvenates and returns to the seed state, nourishes a metabolic hope of extrapolating the common reality, where time belongs to Schrödinger and not to Eddington.

So says Benjamin Button.
