So, if I'm understanding this:

Schrodinger's cat theory: there are several things which could be true, based on probability (in the experiment, whether the element decays or not). As long as the true state of affairs (whether the cat is alive or dead) is unknown, the cat is both alive and dead simultaneously due to this. It is only when one is confirmed that this one becomes truth. However, by seeking to confirm this, a person interferes with the experiment, and could have influenced it just by that.

... Ah, it's still kind of confusing to apply...

Still can't really wrap my head around probatio diabolica, other than it's 'an impossible proof'. =/ These things seem a bit over my head...
