To Be or Not To Be, Why Not Both?

Have you ever heard of “Schrodinger’s Cat”? If not, let me try and give you as brief of an overview as I can.

First of all, “Schrodinger” would be an awesome name for a cat (right?!). Otherwise, it really didn’t matter what his name was (haha).

“Schrodinger’s Cat” is a reference to a thought experiment wherein if the said cat were to be placed inside a bunker along with an explosive that had a 50/50 chance of going off, and without looking inside the bunker, determine whether or not the cat has met its demise.

Take note, that to avoid any wise cracks that may come from people implying the logic that “if the bomb did go off, you would’ve at least felt a tremor through the walls”, I’ll just go ahead and say that the entire bunker is reinforced with 10 ft thick concrete walls lined with Adamantium railing double coated in semi-liquefied Vibranium therefore making any method of detonation detection from outside the bunker irrelevant and implausible (I’m neither a seismologist nor an expert in acoustics, in short… :P … hahaha).

Well, it was either that or a biochemical nerve gas that paralyzes your entire body that causes you to lose vital functions inclusive of spontaneous respiration and the production of heart beats (which we all probably know are required for both humans and felines to carry out the natural phenomena that we all like to call “life”… :3) – you decide… haha

Okay, back to¬† making a point…

Did the cat:

a) Roll over and go belly up for all eternity

or

b) Jump at you after opening the bunker hatch for making it sit through a whole day of nothing (implying that the cat is alive… duh)

At the time of contemplation, both answers are inherently true.

But in reality, there can only be one. The cat is either alive or deceased. In the negative sense, it would also be true that “the cat is neither alive nor deceased”. It can only be one or the other, primarily because reality only comes into fruition once it has been observed to be true.

Ergo, the singular conclusion that you would have to agree with is to “go and see it for yourself”.

Now comes the dilemma.

You never actually get the chance to open the bunker.

Lie Like You Mean It

every lie is a truth in the making. whether or not you choose to believe is entirely up to you.

on some occasions, people prefer to hold on to a lie. not because they are unaware of the truth but because the truth may sometimes be too bitter to swallow.

and living in your own fictionalized reality is often an escape from what reality really is – harsh, cruel, and unforgiving.

now i’m not saying that there isn’t any good left to look forward to in the world. it’s just that it’s hard to see the bigger picture when your view is obscured with a huge pile of crap.

i know that a lie will always be a lie, no matter what its end may be. still, every now and then we need to feel the awesomeness that goes along with a win. it may not be as glorified as doing something realistically epic, but hey, we’re human and we need to feel the love (hahaha ;p).

if you’re grossly in opposition to the idea of being lied to, then think about this…

why do people take the time to read volumes of literature?

and why would they wait in line at the theaters for a reasonably kick-ass movie like ..”Iron Man”?

why?!…

because people need to dream.

and dreams are simply¬† made-up realities, so essentially, they aren’t any different from lies. (semantics… pffft… hahaha).

you can choose to be whoever you want to be and feel whatever you want to feel. but just be careful not to drive yourself over the edge (because there is a limit to how delusional one can get before being clinically diagnosed… hehehe)

and when it comes to lies, it isn’t as easy as black and white. rather, it’s more like trying to figure out which one has the lighter shade of gray (and if you’re color blind… then… you’re pretty much f***ed… hahaha).

but i won’t stop you from trying… hahaha…
