Schrödinger’s cat is a famous thought experiment. Essentially, you lock a cat inside a bunker with poisonous gas. The cat has a 50% chance of living, and a 50% chance of dying. But, until you actually look inside the bunker, nobody knows if the cat is dead or alive. Your act of looking at the cat forces nature’s decision to either kill the cat or let it live. So, your curiosity could actually kill the cat.
