made this contribution to the thought problem of Schrödinger's Cat
What if we put a person into the box instead of cat? And instead of killing whatever is inside the box, we put a light bulb that goes off when the radioactive decay is recorded. Or if you really want to keep the cat, you can. Just put Wigner's buddy in there to watch either the bulb or the cat.
You can ask him what a superposition state is like. Wigner's point being, I think, because this thought problem, as always, is frankly starting to make my head hurt, that the collapse of the superposition depends on consciousness, because our experience of consciousness precludes existing in a superposed state or multiple alternative states.
The implications for those trying to connect New Age thinking and quantum physics is that the mechanics of the universe are disrupted by conscious beings.
There is no documented evidence to prove that Wigner developed this idea when he got Edward Teller drunk one night and locked him in a large box.
