Unearthly Riddle

Question

Posted · Report post

I’m a corpse and I’m alive

I’m so fantastically real.

I’m in a box and under locks

My fate a roulette wheel.

When you see me I am dead

But if you look alive,

Blow me up or put me down

It all depends on eyes.

(I expect this one to fall quickly)

a zombie. But, I have a feeling that that's not it.

no Thalia, not that.

This one will be difficult if not impossible for many, but obvious to some.

Hmmm, I don't know about this one yet.

mushrooms? I could also guess popcorn, but I think that is more abstract.

While a game of Go fits very well, I'm actually going to go with a dam. It seems more your style.

Edit: Just saw the money bills and have to agree that it's a strong answer, especially the American 1 dollar bill.

I find a lot of things that justify half the clues, but it is hard to make them all fit.

a bullet?

Schrödinger’s Cat

Schrödinger's Cat is a thought experiment in Quantum Mechanics to illustrate a common paradox that describes the behavior of subatomic particles. The cat is not a real cat, but it represents the reality of how particles behave. The cat is locked in a box with a poisonous gas canister rigged to a fifty-fifty device (Einstein's version proposed TNT). It may trigger the gas, thus "putting down" the kitty or it might not. The only way to find out is to look. However, by quantum standards, where the cat represents a particle state or position, it is both dead AND alive until the experimentor actually views it. The act of observation itself impacts what the condition will be. Here's a good explanation:

Yep, not surprised it was the Dude. I expect we share a common interest in the little things of life.

:offtopic: Ah, minute physics ... I learn more about actual physics from youtube than I ever did in a class. (Kinda sad.) This is my favorite so far though. :)
