Schrödinger's cat and falling tree.
What is Schrödinger's cat and does a tree which
falls in the forest where no one can hear it, make a noise?
I came across this sentence and was on the toss trying to understand.
For the benefit, here is the explanation.
the mind dies so there is no observer for the
private thoughts and feelings that mind had? With no
observer, the mind should not have existed. But clearly it
does. So an observer is not necessary for things, events,
anything to happen. This means that observer-less
phenomena will, more than likely, follow the same rules
as observed phenomena. the cat will have either
died or no
My mind is not dead (Yet) but whether there are any thoughts going through it is irrelevant, whether or not there is an observer as there is not enough sense to determine if there is anything happening or not. The question, therefore, is "Am I dead or alive and would you please stop propping me against the door to keep it open?"
