Re: Schrödinger\'s Cat & Running Bad (a BBV Dissertation w/ Cliffnotes.
I had a theory about this once.
OK, now imagine that instead of you being outside the box with the cat, you are the cat. Or rather you are inside a box, with a random particle determining whether you live or die.
Now there's still going to be two universes, one where you live, and one where you don't, but of course, you won't know about the one where you die, so you'll only know about the one where you live.
Therefore, you could carry out this experiment 100 times, and each time, you would survive, or one of you would survive, and that the only one who would know about it.
So to everyone else, you wind up dead, in your own universe, you are alive and have just survived 100 random 50 50 events...
Now if we extend this to live, and assume that the majority of things which could kill us are in some way determined by a random event. So life is like one big shrodingers experiment, and your own self will always survive the random events, because you wont know about the ones that don't... so everyone, in their own universe will survive until there is no possible universe in which they don't die... so everyone really has like 120 years ahead of them...
