Heisenberg’s Cat

YOU’VE NO DOUBT heard of Schrödinger’s cat. Well, here at Casa d’Alger, we have Heisenberg’s cat. In layman’s terms, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle goes something like this:

In quantum mechanics, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle states by precise inequalities that certain pairs of physical properties, such as position and momentum, cannot be simultaneously known to arbitrarily high precision. That is, the more precisely one property is measured, the less precisely the other can be measured.

Karma, our Heisenberg’s cat, exhibits behavior such that it is impossible to determine her position in the plenum contained within our house to any degree of precision whatsoever, because by the time you’ve figured out where she is, she’s somewhere else.
