I saw a t-shirt yesterday that happened to feature Schrodinger’s Cat. While I was vaguely familiar with its premise, I decided to investigate further. The above video explained it in a way I could understand…although I’m still trying to wrap my mind around the concept.

Before observation, there are any one of a number of possibilities for outcomes in situations we find ourselves in during our life’s journey. Until we “open the box”, that is actually experience the outcome, there are a limitless number of possibilities. In the case of the cat, there are only two possibilities, the cat is either dead or alive. In the “real world” there might be a close-to-infinite number of possibilities and until they’re experienced, all can exist.

Here’s another rendition of the same theory, using an example we all might be able to connect with:

And then, for those of you who might want to investigate further:
