LOST: Schrödinger's Cat

So, OK, like I was over at The House Next Door because it's like one of my favorite blogs, right? And I was making an observation that, in the last episode of "LOST"-- it was called "The Man From Tallahassee" -- when Ben tells Locke the story about a big box on the island where you could imagine anything you want inside, that it was really like a reference to Schrödinger's Cat in quantum physics, eh? It's like quantum indeterminacy, 'cause anything could be in the box but you don't know until you open it, right? OK then, so until you can see what's in the box, all the possibilities exist at once. Whatever's in there is in a superposition because it's there and not there at the same time. And, like, so is everybody watching "LOST" because we don't know what's in the big box; we just know what's in the little boxes, like the hatch and the Virgin Mary statues and stuff. And the box factory. So, then I thought I should put in a link to something about Schrödinger's Cat and I Googled it and I found this awesome video that's, like, the best thing I've ever seen on the Internet! Especially when a dog like enters the equations. The guy is Gary Burgess (but not like the guy who played Radar on "M*A*S*H" because he was Gary Burghoff, OK) and I think he's like Canadian, like if Doug and Bob McKenzie were quantum physi-cizists -- oh, Jeez! -- or something like that. So, the topic is Schrödinger's Cat and this is the video, so click on it and that's all, so g'day. And hose off, eh?

Plus, Ben is like Henry Gale, too, so he's in two states at the same time, eh?
