The standard theory of quantum mechanics has no intrinsic “collapse” or reduction. At most, it sometimes makes use of a “collapse postulate” that has no physical account in the theory itself and is applied to fill the explanatory gap between the usual unitary evolution (which, in general, does not yield a determinate result–that’s the “Schrodinger’s Cat” situation) and our experience of a definite result (a cat either alive OR dead). A new counterexample shows that this situation can result in fatal, empirically explicit contradictions, suggesting that the standard theory — along with all its interpretations (including Many-Worlds and Relational QM) — is not viable. For details, see the link below. As this is a draft paper, comments are welcome.
