Hello friends, I woke up this morning with a thought that would not leave me alone. I have been thinking about it and it could be my lack of conceptual understanding of thought experiments and perhaps even quantum physics, but here it is: what is the importance of thought experiments, specifically Schrodinger's Cat and Quantum Suicide? I even impose the "so what?" for them, not out of ignorance but out of wonder. What are their use to people who aren't physicists?
