right, um, deconstructive inteference; where does the energy go? [?]

"Superfluous Superposition" refers to the phenomenon in quantum mechanics where a quantum system can exist in multiple states or positions simultaneously, even though it may not be necessary for the system to do so.
Regular superposition occurs when a quantum system exists in multiple states at the same time, but each state has a specific physical significance. In "Superfluous Superposition", the extra states or positions do not have any physical significance and are therefore considered unnecessary or superfluous.
"Superfluous Superposition" can be caused by decoherence, which is the interaction of a quantum system with its surroundings. This interaction can cause the quantum system to collapse into a single state, or it can allow for multiple states to coexist without any physical significance.
While "Superfluous Superposition" may seem like a purely theoretical concept, it has real-world applications in quantum computing and cryptography. By understanding and controlling superposition, scientists can develop more efficient and secure quantum technologies.
No, "Superfluous Superposition" is a phenomenon that is only observed at the quantum level and cannot be observed in everyday life. However, its effects can be seen in certain phenomena such as quantum tunneling or the double-slit experiment.
