How Schrödinger Came Up With His Cat I am more and more convinced Schrödinger came up with his cat from watching real cats - the ones whose wave functions collapsed! My cat waits by the door. I open it to let him out. It is cold outside. He hesitates and does not move. I tell him to make his mind up, then shut the door. It's not just cats who don't like cold! Surely, he wants to stay in the house. A few moments later the door is opened. Now he goes out. The wave function on this decision collapsed. Two minutes later, he is squawking back.
