Adam and Eve and the collapse of the moral wave function

Fletcher, Neville H.

Description

An analogy is drawn between the. collapse of the quantum wave/unction caused by observation, as exemplified by the famous Gedankenexperiment of Schrodinger s cat, and the collapse of the metaphysical moral wave/unction into one or other of the states 'good' or 'bad'. Again observation is necessarily involved, and perhaps making that observation requires certain innate or conferred abilities.
