Time is a difficult thing to understand sometimes. In the meantime I wonder how Schrödinger took the time (did he download it? did he save it? did he save it to a temporary folder, to look at 'later' (what time was that).

Anyway the cat got involved and the price of cat food has risen greatly.

A simple clock could be this

A bit more confusticated

For the thinking man

And then it all becomes so obvious

Each of these three rows is a wavefunction which satisfies the time-dependent Schrödinger equation for a harmonic oscillator. Left: The real part (blue) and imaginary part (red) of the wavefunction. Right: The probability distribution of finding the particle with this wavefunction at a given position. The top two rows are examples of stationary states, which correspond to standing waves. The bottom row an example of a state which is not a stationary state. The right column illustrates why stationary states are called "stationary".

6 months and we shoot to the future which the past has just been nicked from us.

Second hand or borrowed time I think
