It is said that if something happens once it is chance, if it happens twice it is coincidence and if it happens a third time it is a pattern. Continuing my quest to disturb the very fabric of quantum knowledge, I have now shown through mathematical induction that my hypothesis was correct: A rat can never be caught, just cloned. No matter how many times you repeat this process and capture the clone, another clone will take its place. Look for yourself. This is Rat #3 that was caught yesterday:
And Rat #4 was cloned the moment Rat #3's wave equation should have collapsed, but did not. One inside the trap, and one outside.
But this angered Schrödinger's quantum ghost so much he summoned Three Giant Banded Quantum Rats to try and wipe the caught rat off the face of the earth. He reasoned that if the rat inside the trap was "disappeared", there would be no quantum contradiction, his wave equation would seem to have properly collapsed into a single coherent outcome and all will be fine with the world. Only one rat that was never caught would have remained.
The drama unfolded with horrifying precision (4m52s):
The poor Rat Bastard survived the ordeal, was relocated Even Further Away, but not without some repercussions:
It seems like all is lost for Schrödinger and his theory, but I have a genius plan. If I can continue to capture these Rat Bastards, eventually the multiverse will run out of matter and energy to keep on fuelling these violations of quantum theory, and the Last Rat Bastard will be caught and relocated.
Raise a glass for brilliance and endurance!
