In your recent "Are classical probabilities instances
of quantum amplitudes?",
you wrote: "It may be noted that superpositions which are arguably macroscopic have been detected in a series of recent experiments."
Do you remember my numerous postings at Q-Mind forum during the past three years? What could be more 'macroscopic' than your brain? You and nearly 1000 participants of this forum were able to verify experimentally macroscopic superpositions. All you need is a brain, like the one above your neck.
Think of a Platonic idea (a.k.a. Holon) which can be "measured" with three (or more, if you wish) sayings:
1. Beggars can't be choosers.
Or think of a Platonic idea which can be "measured" with two states only, 'vase' and 'two faces',
You keep in your BRAIN a holistic state of a vase-AND-two-faces, don't you? Hence you can verify your conjecture in quant-ph/0206147 with your brain.
This special brain state is just UNspeakable, for you can explicate it with either 'vase' or 'two faces'. But it won't crash/collapse. No way.
BTW if you manage to control these macroscopic superpositions, you can even walk on fire,
Think of 'damp moss', that's all:-)
