I don't see how the Copenhagen interpretation and the second law of thermodynamics can be compatible.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In the Copenhagen interpretation, upon losing coherence the system chooses a single definite state and all other possible states are eradicated. This seems to be losing entropy to me, as it's losing all other possible states.

Thanks
