What exactly is the paradox involved?
Once the experiment begins, either:
A) The nucleus decays, the gas is released, the cat dies
B) The nucleus does not decay, the gas is not released, the cat lives.
Apparently, the question raised is something to the effect of: Are the objects involved in the experiment hanging between states of being?
Which, in my mind, is a resounding no.
Does the fact that the result of the experiment is unknown create a problem? I don't see how. For example, if I flip a coin, and it lands at the bottom of a dark, empty well, does that coin become lodged in between the realms of heads and tails?
Am I just stupid?
