Most of you will be aware of the postulation that quantum phenomena require observation to collapse the wave form and "become real", but have any studies been done on its opposite? There is a body of (currently un-verfied) evidence that certain phenomena only takes place when not observed. Some of you will be familiar with this from your own experiences: You are watching a good film on TV, or reading a book, and the cat is elsewhere. There is a loud crash as the bookcase or expensive gew-gaw falls to destruction - in a room that has the door shut. Intending to chastise (for what good it ever does) said cat you get into the room by various contortions designed to make no gap accessible for the cat to escape, only to find the cat is not in the room. Descending the stairs you find the cat laid in your (still warm seat), which will stretch and give you a look as if to say "Something happen? It woke me". Cats are anti-quantum phenomena that only collapse into catness when not under observation. I would like to set up a study, involving a 100% coverage by CCTV in ever-expanding radii around expensive fragile objects to ascertain the maximum "transport radius" of cats and to see if, and how, this varies with age, sex, breed, possibly sheer bloody-mindedness (although I am yet to be convinced there is any degree of difference from one cat to another), etc. I desire funding for: expensive objects CCTV coverage PC for data recording wide screen TV and large selection of DVDs to induce the smearing of the cat by distracting me from its existence large collection of books for when the watching films becomes too harrowing food and drink to keep me going Any body willing to sponsor me?
