You mean that the infamous cat could collapse
his own superposition?
Sanin dapo'
-serafino

"There is, to be sure, a genuine problem
in the phenomenon of quantum measurement,
but I will not discuss it here.
It concerns _introspective_ systems,
where subject = object so that
the basic conception of a single subject
observing an ensemble of objects
must be modified."
