Or: Why many companies are not a cat, but have a cat condition
Schrödinger’s thought experiment from 1935 has gone down in history. It contrasted an approach from quantum physics with the actually perceptible world. The semi-, almost, not or completely dead cat has also entered popular culture in a simplified – and slightly misappropriated – form. The setup: A cat is locked in a box with an atomic nucleus. The atomic nucleus decays with a probability of 50%. And when it does, it releases toxic gas that kills the cat. Whether the cat is alive or dead is only known when you open the lid and look into the box.
