First let me start with my conclusion.
The classical universe is a holographic projection of a quantum state.
Let's look at Schrodinger's Cat.
Schrödinger's Cat: A cat, a flask of poison and a radioactive source are placed in a sealed box. If an internal monitor detects radioactivity
(i.e. a single atom decaying), the flask is shattered, releasing the poison that kills the cat. There is a supposed fifty-percent chance of this
happening. The Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics implies that after a while, the cat is simultaneously alive and dead. Yet, when we look
in the box, we see the cat either alive or dead, not both alive and dead. This poses the question of when exactly superposition ends and reality
collapses into one possibility or the other.
en.wikipedia.org...
Some say the cat is too big and warm to go into superposition, some say the Cat is in superposition until the observer opens the box and some say the
Cat is an observer.
So let's remove the cat. Let's replace the cat with a can of red spray paint put inside a blue box. If a single atom decays, there will be red spray
paint on the inside of the blue box. If it doesn't decay, then the observer will open the box an find a blue box without red spray paint.
These two probable states are in superposition on a quantum level. This means both classical universes are holographic projections or mixed classical
states of quantum superposition.
The classical universe doesn't need to go into superposition because it's not an objective material reality but a subjective holographic projection
or mixed state of a quantum superposition.
So the box and the entire classical universe is in a projected mixed state until 1 of 2 things happen.
A. Single atom decay occurs and there's a measured state of red paint on the inside of the blue box.
B. Atom decay doesn't occur and the Observer opens the box and finds a blue box without red paint.
The universe, the box and the observer is in a mixed state and on a quantum level, it's in a state of superposition until A or B occurs.
This also means parallel universes exist. Because on a quantum level both quantum states are projected mixed states until a measurement occurs.
So at the end of the day, we're holographic projections or mixed states of quantum superposition..
