Bram Cohen came up with a very cool Schrödinger’s cat like quantum mechanics thought experiment the other day involving a quantum dualist shooting himself at twenty paces.
Sadly, back when I studied quantum mechanics it was all differential equations and very few thought experiments. I guess that is what you should expect in a real science class and I probably would have been happier moonlighting in philosophy except that they always seemed to have so much reading to do. Still, at least I can claim that once upon a time I actually understood all this stuff.
