On 2012/01/25, I sent an e-mail to my friend in which I write that the cat measures radiation and display the result as dead or alive.
That is to say, I think that the essence of Schrödinger cat is a measurement of a measurement.
A Geiger counter and a poison gas generator and the cat constitute a measuring apparatus.
The cat is thought of as a display unit of the apparatus.
So to observe the cat is a measurement of a measurement.
