The abandoned sleep of the domestic cat has much to teach us of letting go and letting be. But don't think of them as laissez-faire, no no no! They can spring up at a split second's notice if conditions warrant it.
According to the famous mathematical thought experiment, Schroedinger's cat is neither dead nor alive. So it's a cool concept if you don't like being locked into binaries. Not so good if you don't like being locked into a lethal booby-trapped box. And from the cat's point of view, there is no ambiguity at all.
