Physicist's Cat

"If the cat survives, it remembers only being alive."  In the act of becoming, the question "why?" more often recedes, and gives way to "how?"  I can conceive of two states. One I'll call alive. The other I'll call dead. Some will argue that if I know 'how' then I'll know 'why.'

My own preference however is the sound of one hand clapping.  Which is an equation without an equal sign.  Or a slope with nowhere to go.  And there is of course the bear in the woods to assist the act of "thinking different."
