Austrian Physicist Erwin Schrodinger was famous for his thought experiment that placed a cat in a sealed box then created a quantum event which resulted in the paradox of the cat being both alive and dead at the same time. The state of the cat not being determined until it is viewed by an observer. The experiment gave rise to the Many Worlds Theory that meant all possible outcomes of an event actually exist but in different universes.
“I’ve always wanted to play with this idea,” said David. “It’s been done before in mainstream Science Fiction but I thought the comedy potential was huge.”
