Description

Inside the box:
Contained in the box is a wooden representation of the famous Schrödinger thought experiment. There is a 50% probability that the image of the cat, cut in wood, is alive and a 50% probability that the image is of a dead cat. Note that when you open the box you will have ONLY ONE OR THE OTHER NOT BOTH.

To keep this experiment as an accurate representation of the Schrödinger experiment you should NOT OPEN THE BOX.

The box is 7 x 5 x 1 cm (2.5 x 2 x 3/8 inch) in size and securely closed with a string. From a philosophical perspective, this wooden representation is surprisingly accurate (see below). A flyer with information about the Scrödinger experiment and the wooden representation is provided with the box. The item is made with high quality Baltic birch plywood.

This item is an excellent gift for anyone who is interested in physics or philosophy. It could also be used as an educational tool for showing the problems with resolving quantum theory with real life objects.

It was recently featured on the Grand Illusions YouTube channel and can be seen here:

Philosophy of this wooden representation:
It is quite ironic that this box and the wooden cat inside is both a realistic and unrealistic representation of the experiment. The realism, philosophically speaking, is that one or a myriad of quantum events lead to you have a box with a specific cat inside. The point is that the information of what state the cat has in this specific box is lost once the item is sent, except that there is a 50% probability that it could be either dead or alive. Thus this experiment becomes an accurate representation since one or a myriad of quantum events lead to you having a specific box and the cat inside has a 50% chance of being in either state. The cat can be said to have both states since you have been outside this experiment and only when you open the box it will collapse to one. This is the Copenhagen interpretation of the experiment and for me the most exiting but also the most vexing. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any thoughts to discuss on this representation of the Schrödinger's cat experiment.

The shipping was slow only because of the pandemic but it was well worth the wait

Clock shipping was a little slow but probably due to covid and not seller. The shipping was prompt. I love the clock.

Note this was my fault! I think the gear wasn't going in the chain all the way... resulting in it over clocking. A little wax on the chain and its running great. It's still getting bound occasionally but as I adjust out the tight links, it keeps getting better.

Corrected issue!
My only complaint is that the clock is really fast. It's been running about 4 hrs and is off about 30 minutes. Going to see if I can figure out how to fix it.

Still have not received. Hopefully it will get here soon. (gave a one star)
This was my previous statement. The sender has contacted me and I am very pleased with their response and willingness to work with me. I would purchase from this seller again.
