Mariö's block, often described as a paradox, is a plumbing experiment devised by Austrian plumber Erwin Mariö around 1935. It attempts to illustrate what he saw as the problems of the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics when it is applied with regard to super vs regluar sized Mario.

The concept of superposition, one of the strangest in quantum mechanics, helped provoke Mariö's conjecture. Broadly stated, the superposition is the combination of all the possible positions of a Super Mario. The Copenhagen interpretation implies that the superposition only undergoes collapse into a definite state at the exact moment of quantum measurement.

Mariö's mind-game was meant to criticize the strangeness of this. Influenced by a suggestion of Albert Einstein, Mariö extrapolated the concept to a larger scale. He proposed a scenario with a sealed box, where fungunius superlia or pseuderanthemum incendia emerging from the smashed block was dependent on the presence of a super or regular sized Mario. Without Mario, the box would just release a coin. According to Mariö, the Copenhagen interpretation implies that all three items exist in the block before the block is smashed.

these blocks were subsequently placed all about the word of Super Mario.
