This is a fragment of a Greek tragedy about the uncertainty of life.Schrodinger's cat is the author.
You may be referring to the cat recently placed up for adoption because his owner committed mental experiments on him. The animal, of one Dr. Schrodinger, is recovering nicely.
But the cat had to be observed before he could recover!
The cat is under constant observation by a team of theoretical physicists. Their latest report says that the cat exists and does not exist.
Does the cat's Greek tragedy script exist and not exist?
The script, scanned and published (partially) here, does exist. Does it prove that the cat too exists? Life is so uncertain.
The point is, actually, that it is a parody written by the well-known classicist and poet AE Housman.One of his pupils was Enoch Powell, perhaps the last sane Englishman.Anon.
I'd never suspected it. The work (2 pgs) is very well written, the style is totally credible. Was it ever published? This Housman Victorian must have been exceptionally witty and intelligent, it makes reasonable the theory that Western IQ is declining. The wiki quotes "A fellow don described him as being "descended from a long line of maiden aunts". How do you explain that statement? I havent drunk yet but I dont get it.
Housman was prissy, I suspect. Anon.
