Beginner Lubricating the horn

Schrödinger works too (sort of) - it's impossible to know whether the oil has reached the middle without opening the tube. In fact there could be a whole ecosystem in there that may be dead or alive.
Yes you're right - I should have kept quiet and just left it at Schrodinger... I was thinking of the "can't observe something without altering it" thing, which I think was Heisenberg. Or a combination of the two: If you put too much oil on something without looking then if it's a cat it might be dead.

There’s a cat in my horn?
Only a hypothetical cat, which may, or may not, be hypothetically alive.
I would be more worried about the small flask of hydrocyanic acid. It could ruin the lacquer on the horn.

It’s only there if I look, or not.
