I had an odd group conversation with my team at work today on agreeing on the approach we would take with a particular project. As always, our conversations would eventually digress into yet another quantum physics discussion.
Here’s a snippet of said conversation:
[11:43:37 AM] JN: all joking aside [11:44:06 AM] JN: we need at least 3 [11:48:04 AM] JN: so lets make a decision [11:49:55 AM] Me: yes, let's [11:50:13 AM] Me: and i’ve also discovered that the first time the decision is made - it is always changed and v2 is the one to go with [11:50:22 AM] <removed> [11:50:29 AM] CH: I vote for V2. [11:50:37 AM] <removed> [11:50:40 AM] JN: I 2nd [11:51:47 AM] Me: but the law of decisions require a first to be made and it would go wrong in order for v2 to exist. [11:52:32 AM] JN: stop trying to confuse us with your logic [11:52:43 AM] CH: you are just not thinking in terms of quanta. [11:52:43 AM] JN: and reason [11:52:51 AM] CH: its just physics. [11:52:58 AM] JN: both exists [11:53:08 AM] JN: at every point in time [11:53:13 AM] CH: exactly. [11:53:21 AM] CH: just depends on whether you observe it or not. [11:53:30 AM] CH: that cat is already dead. [11:53:54 AM] JN: point vs wave [11:54:12 AM] JN: sometime Mel is a point and other time a wave [11:54:33 AM] JN: just depends on if we are watching her [11:54:56 AM] JN: you know what I find super weird about that [11:55:45 AM] JN: if we setup an experiment to record it, it does not count as observing [11:58:40 AM] MW: yeah! that’s the spook! ... [12:10:37 PM] Me.: so. what was the decision? [12:14:53 PM] MW: lol
