    It's occupies both the state of being dead and alive simultaneously until we observe it to be in just one of the states. Therefore the cat is both dead and alive until you open the box and see which state it's in.

    I understand your point and it's quite hard to get your head around at first.

    FFS it's not meant to be taken literally. It was designed to illustrate the absurdity of some interpretations of quantum mechanics (e.g, the copenhagen interpretation).

    "FFS" is not an appropriate response, imo, considering just how many people think it is used as a genuine analogy for quantum mechanics, to be taken literally and seriously.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!
