A Conversation for Schrodinger's Cat
Schrodinger's Cat - a different experiment?

I came acros a different experiment and wondered if this relates in any way. If you had a sphere that was perfectly mirrored inside and you emitted a photon of light inside this sphere before instatatously clsing it completely would the photon continue to 'bounce' endlessly in the sphere. The only way you could find out would be to look into the sphere at which point you would absorb the photon by looking at it.
Is this the same thing? basically you'd be unable to determine the situation without observing it, but by observing it you change the situation?
