Page 311 - The Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms amended, to which is prefixed, a Short Chronicle from the first memory of Things in Europe, to the Conquest of Persia, by Alexander the Great.
Page 324 - One can even set up quite ridiculous cases. A cat is penned up in a steel chamber, along with the following diabolical device (which must be secured against direct interference by the cat) : in a Geiger counter there is a tiny bit of radioactive substance, so small, that perhaps in the course of one hour...
Page 324 - A cat is penned up in a steel chamber, along with the following diabolical device (which must be secured against direct interference by the cat) : in a Geiger counter there is a tiny bit of radioactive substance, so small, that perhaps in the course of one hour one of the atoms decays, but also, with equal probability, perhaps none ; if it happens, the counter tube discharges and through a relay releases a hammer which shatters a small flask of hydrocyanic acid.
Page 339 - Est regardé comme Juif, pour l'application de la présente loi, toute personne issue de trois grands-parents de race juive ou de deux grands-parents de la même race, si son conjoint lui-même est juif.
Page 327 - But the converse is not true. Maximal knowledge of a total system does not necessarily include total knowledge of all its parts, not even when these are fully separated from each other and at the moment are not influencing each other at all.
Page 324 - ... the counter tube discharges and through a relay releases a hammer which shatters a small flask of hydrocyanic acid. If one has left this entire system to itself for an hour, one would say that the cat still lives if meanwhile no atom has decayed. The first atomic decay would have poisoned it. The ^-function of the entire system would express this by having in it the living and the dead cat (pardon the expression) mixed or smeared out in equal parts.
Page 328 - If two separated bodies, each by itself known maximally, enter a situation in which they influence each other, and separate again, then there occurs regularly that which I have just called entanglement of our knowledge of the two bodies.
Page 312 - I was greatly disappointed," she wrote, "for, in consequence of the harassing and fatiguing life he had led during the winter months, he used to retire to bed with a bason of milk or glass of water, and Smith's Harmonics and Optics, Ferguson's Astronomy...
Page 323 - ... blurring" seems simply wrong. The state of a radioactive nucleus is presumably blurred in such degree and fashion that neither the instant of decay nor the direction, in which the emitted a-particle leaves the nucleus, is well-established.
Page 325 - The rejection of realism has logical consequences. In general, a variable has no definite value before I measure it ; then measuring it does not mean ascertaining the value that it has. But then what does it mean ? There must...
