DUMB VERSION:
someone who fucking put a cat in a box with something dangerous that would have a 50% chance to kill the cat so that he could explain "paralell universes" better
GOOD VERSION:
schrodinger (1887-1961) was a man who wanted to describe that...feeling...when...a path forks, and...how to emphasize on that. so, he made "schrodinger's cat", a tale as old as time, where he stuffed a cat in a box, and put something dangerous in it (we actually don't know what it was) that had a 50% chance of killing the cat. now, this setup resulted is something interesting: WE DO NOT KNOW IF THE CAT IS DEAD OR ALIVE, UNTIL WE LIFT THE LID ON THE BOX. this shattered the universe and duplicated it, where there were now TWO of the exact same universe that of which only difference was a cat that was dead and one that was alive. he had single handedly described the fork in the road...PARALELL UNIVERSES.
