Schrodinger’s Cat Isn’t Both Dead and Alive

 

By Elton Camp

 

Physics claimed a particle exists in all states until you see it

Dr. Erwin Schrodinger, from such an inane error, did free it

 

In a box is radioactive sample, Geiger Counter, poison, cat

If the Geiger Counter sees radioactive decay, what about that?

 

It will then break the poison bottle and the cat thus dies

But without such decay, the cat won’t meet its demise

 

Those in error said decay had and had not taken place

So the cat is both dead and alive until you see its face

 

Common sense tells us this cannot be true

No matter how much speculating you do

 

The cat is either dead or preserved

Well before it has been observed

 

The Copenhagen view had a serious flaw

And that’s what Schrodinger wisely saw

 

The other physicists thus were bested

When by this thought experiment tested
