Schrodinger's Cat and Leonard Susskind

    Hi Guys

    For all people interested in Schrodinger's Cat check out Leonard Susskind's explanation - very lucidly explained:
    http://www.newpackettech.com/Resources/Susskind/PHY30/LectureRv9_Video_Lec7.htm

    The cat is most definitely not in a superposition - it is entangled with the other parts of the apparatus and that entanglement is such the cat is alive or dead - never in a superposition. Open the box - that doesn't change the state of the cat - all that happens is you become entangled with it.

    Thanks
    Bill
