Or is it alive---- or is it in a state of superposition?

One might interpret that terse comment as implying quantum systems become 
non-sensical at macro levels.   Larger and larger systems have been 
successfully become quantum intangled and the size transition from quantum 
mechanics to classical physics is unclear.  Roger Penrose, a mathematical 
physicist,  has hypothesized that wavefunction collapse is a consequence of the 
force of gravity, so systems above a certain mass should never show quantum 
behavior.  The limit could be a mg or the size of the earth.  
In any event, nothingness should be simplified to the smallest scales and is 
thus a quantum concept, IMO.  Nothing does not exist. 

Long live the cat, Mike
