Hello guys, i'm just new here.I have a question about observers.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This may be a stupid question , but here it goes.

We have lets say the Schroedinger's cat tought experiment.

The main question.If you have a particle in a superposition of states, of wich all pure states have a different effect, like the mechanis in the experiment, wich either triggers or not.

So, if the cat is the observer, doesn't it collapse the wave functin of the particle, just by observing the effect?

The first instant, tha cat sees the mechanism, it "decides" that it either kill it or not. So the moment that the cat's state is decided, isn't when we look at it, but rather when the cat looks at it (wich is the fist instant).

Is my logic wrong?....i just taught about, because i read about multi-word theorys and stuff (on this exp.), and don't think that such complicated theorys are needed in this case.
