That discussion group somebody was going to start . . .  

I reckon the important part is coming up with a good name, so I've been thinking about it. Have even hurled off a few choice suggestions to the person in question. But have come up with the bestest name possible so now he'll have to start the group. The name?

Schrödinger’s Musician

Don't it just say it all?

Current Mood: accomplishedaccomplished

Letting the cat out of the box.
I haven't forgotten or given up. You started me considering scope. Do I want this to be directed towards the matter at hand (the task I have undertaken), or do I want it to be a broader discussion. Both have merits. Still pondering.

Re: Letting the cat out of the box.
I'd recommend breadth, just because breadth will happen anyway ...

Lessee... you put a musician in a box with two possible songs they could play to follow "Quinn The Eskimo." If the musician plays the wrong song, then a poisonous gas is released that immediately warps the neck of their guitar so badly that they can never play it again, but if the musician plays the right song their guitar is left intact. However, until we invite the musician to sit in a song circle, we don't know whether the neck of their guitar is warped or not, and so the musician exists in an indeterminate state between musician and non-musician.

Is that it?

Hee. Yeah.

But how will you know whether the group has split up?

One assumes that Schrodinger's Musician plays alone, in two (or more) eigenkeys simultaneously, until a listener shows up and collapses the wave function to a single key. ^_^
