Stefano [Steady-State] :A particle in the box. sillustrated by Katarina Karlsson

"someone, I canīt remember with which intent, mentioned the Heisenbergīs indetermination principle* and the "cat in the box". I actually think it is Liz fault, but that eventually triggered me to give a kind of explanation, which is a vain effort, firstly because I am all but good in explaining things, in general, secondly because actually none really bothered to know what the hell and indetermination principle could actually be. I think the cat in the box is still the better approximation to an intuitive understanding. Nonetheless this principle can be actually be made rather trivial as it says that you canīt know the energy of a particle if you know it position and viceversa , if the particle mall enough."
