Superposition of macroscopic position states

  1. Jun 7, 2013 #1
    How is see by our senses a superposition of sensorially distinghible states in superposition, for example, superpositions of states with the same object with a separation of ≈1 cm??

    If you can see it, you have photons coming from it, and you get decoherence. You cannot observe the superposition of anything as a superposition.
