@High Priest Mikhal
The universe have already decided. Is just that until you open the box you do not get the memo on what happened.

Just because someone does not know of an event, it does not mean that the event did not happen. And just because someone believed an event happened it does not make it so. Irrelevant of the popularity of the event.

If at all the experiment is a way of saying: "There are things we cannot measure thus we cannot know. " The principle of uncertainly.

Thanks for the explanation High Priest Mikhal, I just want to point one fact that is often overlooked about the Schrodinger's Cat experiment: according to basic quantum theory, not only should the dead cat and the living cat both exist until they are observed, they should also be able to interact with each other. Thus, for example, if the cat is left in the box long enough, the living version of the cat will get hungry and eat the dead version of itself and also die of poisoning. So the result will always be a dead cat when the box is opened.

Sorry to get off topic- hopefully this will provide some inspiration to a budding physicist and Dilbert fan somewhere who will one day become famous and win a Nobel Prize in physics and then mention Dilbert in their acceptance speech.

I think there is a kind of parallelism between Wulf in a Box and Wally in a Cubicle

Being a cat, surely Wulf still has 4.5 lives left?

Catbert's 'Uh-oh' is referencing the impending pun war.
