Let's look at Schrodinger's thought experiment. The cat in the box will either live or die based on the random occurrence of the radioactive source.
Let's say the poison is released and the cat dies. The cat is a classical object so a measurement will occur and the cat will be in a dead state
before the Observer opens the box. This is because of Decoherence and any superposition will quickly decohere because the cat is a big object and the
state of the cat will interact with the environment rather quickly.
So what caused this measurement to occur? Was it the radioactive source or the choice of the Observer to carry out the experiment? If the observer
didn't make the choice to carry out the experiment the cat would be alive. So can we call choice the collapse of the probability wave? When I wake up
in the morning I have I'm presented with a probability wave. I can turn on the TV, turn on the computer, go to the Fridge or go back to sleep. Of
course there's more choices that can be made but we will start with these.
Reality isn't measured until I make a choice. So my choice creates reality. Let's say I go to the Fridge and I cook an egg , the egg falls to the
floor and when I pick up the broken egg I notice a piece of paper under the stove that looks familiar. I grab the piece of paper and it's the number
of an old friend that I bumped into but I lost the number and it must of fell out of my pocket and landed under the stove. I then call my friend, we
meet up for lunch and we end up doing some business together.
All of this started with my choice to go to the Fridge and get something to eat. If I would have decided to watch TV instead and I skipped breakfast
than a different reality would have been measured.
So was there a First Choice that preceded all measurements? Is Choice an embedded property of the universe? What gives human beings the ability to
make choices between different measurements? Is Choice an ability powered by the Spirit?
What came first, the Choice or the Measurement?
