I believe Kurt Cagle has a proposal for using the Higgs field and a means to remove mass effects. And the cat is definitively and certainly dead. You can ignore the effects of the box and prove it with the properties of the cat which are known prior to entering box. len -----Original Message----- From: W.

There are two prequisites to correctly guessing the 7 numbers (i.e. winning the lottery): 1) Have a degree in Physics 2) Only bet on the winning numbers Both are hard to achieve. I have the first. The second may revolve around the 2 solutions to Maxwells equations. One solution is for an e/m signal going forward in time - but - the other is an e/m signal going backward in time (usually ignored by physicists). If you read Gribbins "Schrodinger's Kittens" you can see how treating the second solution as "real" leads to a more satisfying interpretation to Quantum Mechanics than the Copenhagen interpretaton. Now all that is required is figure out an experiment to receive and interpret these backward in time signals. I have been pondering this for a while - and it does look impossible - yet - maybe if we use entanglement. :-) Hugh I once gave a talk to the Ottawa XML Users group called Quantum Infodynamics - but it seems to be no longer online.
