Schrodinger's Cat, Perfect Solution
Schrodinger's Cat  this problem was solved when I used a type of fuzzy theories, which is called "linguistic fuzzy theory". (LFT)
In the followings I will show LFT firstly and the solution secondly.
Linguistic Fuzzy Theory
[I] Fuzziness
LFT is a type of fuzzy theory that I proposed. LFT takes up the truthvalue of a sentence linguistically.
Usual sentences have such a structure as:
"X is Y"
For example,
"This is a pen."
"He is a fool."
"Truth is similar to beauty."
Even if you take up sentences that include usual verbs instead of beverbs ("is"), it makes no difference in essence. Because, for example, the sentence "He likes it" is equivalent to "He is fond of it".
Then fuzziness appears as two types in the structure "X is Y". I will show them in the followings.
(1) fuzziness of noun
In some cases, a sentence has fuzzy nouns. For example:
"He is a fool."
Here "fool" is fuzzy because of following two reasons:
(i) Reason 1
Nobody can make a clear distinction between "fool" and "nonfool". For example, is the clown of Shakespeare's "King Lear" a fool? Is he possibly a wise man while we are fools? Some people might say that we are not fools in the least. But the clown might say that he is sane and we are fools because he killed no one while we killed a lot and moreover we are going to kill also ourselves through the destruction of the earth.
(ii) Reason 2
When you say that he is a fool, it is not clear to what degree he is a fool. Is he a complete fool or a fool to some extent? Is he a real fool or a fool in a sense? For example, in Japan, if you are called a fool and you get angry then you are a real fool.
There are many cases of the same type. For example:
"Blue is a good color."
"Truth is similar to beauty."
In these sentences above, the structure "X is Y" has fuzziness at "X" or "Y". For example, the noun "blue" or "beauty" is fuzzy.
Generally saying, abstractive nouns are fuzzy.
Adjectives are also fuzzy as same as abstractive nouns because adjectives can be transformed into abstractive nouns. For example:
"It is important." > "It is of importance."
"He is foolish." > "He is a fool."
Thus these nouns have fuzziness.
There is fuzziness of nouns.
(2) fuzziness of beverb
In some cases, the structure "X is Y" has fuzziness at "is".
For example:
"His age would be over 70."
Here "would be" has fuzziness. In this case, the structure "X is Y" includes "would", which apparently has fuzziness. However, in some cases, the structure "X is Y" does not include such a word. For example:
Tom says, "The coin is head." Then Bill says, "The coin is tail."
In this case, it has already been decided whether the coin is head or tail in this world. Fuzziness arises just because nobody can know the fact. If someone can look secretly at the coin by a trick, only for him there is no fuzziness and only he can declare without hesitation.
[II] Numberizing
I have already shown two types of fuzziness.  Fuzziness of nouns and fuzziness of beverbs. Such fuzziness can be numberized. (This is a standpoint of usual fuzzy theory.)
Now let's use the word "clearness" instead of "fuzziness." 100%fuzziness means 0%clearness. 0%fuzziness means 100%clearness. Thus, the numberizing of fuzziness is equivalent to the numberizing of clearness. Both are in the relation of the light and shadow.
Then we think as the followings.
(1) numberizing of the clearness of a noun
Numberizing of the clearness of a noun  this has already been done by usual fuzzy theory. For example, as the word {gray} is not clear, you may say "It is 70%black"or "It is 30%white." You may also say, " {gray} is belong to {black} at 70%degree."
These numbers such as 70% or 30% are named membershipvalues by usual fuzzy theory.
You might think that you could think strictly if you use membershipvalue by numberizing the clearness of a noun. Generally, however, membershipvalues can not be decided easily nor uniquely.
For example, we often use the word {tall}. However, do you know how is its membershipvalue is decided? Suppose a Japanese woman whose height is 165 cm (5 feet and a half). Is she tall? Someone would think, "She is 60%tall." Someone would think, "She is 40%tall." Its membershipvalue can not be decided easily nor uniquely. You might consider that we could get an exact value if we investigate statistically the use of the word among people. Such an investigation is, however, nonsense. Who investigates the membershipvalue of "tall" statistically before he uses the word? Membershipvalues are not decided statistically but decided linguistically. That is, membershipvalues are decided by our own minds. There are many minds and there are many membershipvalues for a word. These membershipvalues for a word are different each other. Consequently, the membershipvalue of a word can not be decided easily or uniquely.
However, membershipvalues are used in fuzzy technology. Why? Membershipvalues in fuzzy technology are assumed values which exist on assumptions. For example, someone would say, "If the temperature is 15 degrees of centigrade, it is 50%cool." But some people would take objection to it. A Scandinavian would say, "It is 20%cool because it is very warm." A Hawaiian would say, "It is 70%cool because it is very cool." Opinion do not agree and membershipvalues are not the same.
To sum up, the membershipvalue of a word can not be decided easily or uniquely. I have once shown the case "{gray} is 70%black." But such a case is exceptional.
(2) numberizing of the clearness of a beverb
Numberizing of the clearness of a noun brings a value, which is named a membershipvalue. And numberizing of the clearness of a beverb brings a value, which is often named a subjective probability.
But this value has no relation with probability. Therefore, this name is not appropriate.
This value is sometimes named a possibility. This word is rather appropriate.
This value is often named a confidencevalue. This word is more appropriate. Then I use this word on this homepage.
What is a confidencevalue? It is a value which is brought by numberizing of the clearness of a beverb. Sometimes we must judge about a phenomenon though we do not know it well. We do not know whether it is true or false but this has been decided in the real world. Then he expresses the degree of his confidence with the words such as "probably", "surely".
This degree does not appear when he feels only in the mind but appears when he expresses his confidence with some words. For example, in the case of the coin tossed up, is it head or tail? The degree of his confidence does not appear when he says nothing but appears when he expresses such words as "Probably head", "Surely tail."
Confidencevalues are of course different among people. A person who looks at the coin is able to declare with 100%confidence. A person who doesn't look at the coin would not be able to declare. Some people, however, declare with enough confidence although they do not look at the coin.
Head or tail?  Discreet people could say only "fiftyfifty". But, how about gamblers? A man who bets must declare with 100%confidencevalue, otherwise the bet could not come into effect.
Thus, confidencevalues depend on men's minds and are different among men. It is not an objective value but a subjective value. (Therefor the word " confidencevalue " is more appropriate than the word "possibility.")
P.s.
In usual fuzzy theory, "confidencevalue" seems to mean a value about the whole structure of "X is Y". On this homepage, however, it means a value about only the beverb ("is"). Both values come to be the same value consequently but strictly saying both have different meanings. (I will tell this again in the followings.)
[III] Truthvalue
Remember the structure "X is Y." We can numberize the clearness of a noun ("X", "Y") and also can numberize the clearness of a beverb ("is"). And such a numberizing brings a value, which decides the truthvalue of the whole sentence ("X is Y").
For example, if the membershipvalue of "X" is 50% and the others are 100%, the truthvalue of the whole sentence is 50%.
For example, if the membershipvalue of "Y" is 50% and the others are 100%, the truthvalue of the whole sentence is 50%.
For example, if the confidencevalue of "is" is 50% and the others are 100%, the truthvalue of the whole sentence is 50%.
Then you must pay attention. Which value affects the truthvalue of the whole sentence? Suppose a case where the truthvalue of the whole sentence is 50%. The factor that affects might be the membershipvalue of "X" but it might be the membershipvalue of "Y" or the confidencevalue of "is". You cannot know which is decisive if you know the truthvalue alone.
[IV] Probability
I have already shown a membershipvalue and a confidencevalue. Either is a value about each event and gives a truthvalue about each event.
On the other hand, instead of each event, a certain value gives a truthvalue about many events. It is probability.
What is probability?
Mathematically saying, it is a value which is defined in the probability universe. This value is, however, no more than an assumed quantity in an assumed universe. It has the name "probability" but has no relationship with the probability in the real world. It is different from the probability in physics, which takes up matters in the real world. (Someone believes that only the probability is defined mathematically is the true probability. His arrogant idea is mistakes a start for an end.)
What is probability in essence? We can say as the followings.
For example, let' think about a coin which is tossed up. Head or tail? Results are not the same in many events. However, if the number of events is large enough, the proportion of head and tail converge to a value. (In this case, it is 50%50%.)
Now we can tell as the following:
If the number of events is large enough, 50% coins of all the coins are head.  (*)
We can also tell as the following:
If the number of events is large enough, "The coin is head" is true in 50% events of all the events.  (**)
Then we can suppose one assumptive event. (This assumptive event is expressed with the indefinite article ["a"]. This is similar to "a car." The word "a car " means a supposed car in our mind. (Even if you think that you now imagine a real car, it is of course a real car in your imagination and is not a real car in this world.)
Then, in such an assumptive event, we can tell as the following instead of the previous (*) or (**).
If the number of events is large enough, the probability of "the coin is head" is 50%.  (***)
This is the definition of probability. (**) and (***) are equivalent.
Here you must heed. The coin in an assumptive event is not a particular coin of many events. It is not the real coin in the real world but the supposed coin in an assumptive event.
[V] Attention
If you have read the explanation above, you must pay attention to two points.
(1) confusion of values
The sentence "X is Y" can get a mid truthvalue between 0 and 1 (0% and 100%). And the factor which brings this mid truthvalue may be one of these:
(i) the clearness of a noun  membershipvalue
(ii) the clearness of a beverb  confidencevalue
(iii) the proportion of the events in all events  probability
You must not confuse them. When you get a mid truthvalue, you must not confuse which one of them brings it.
You should pay a special attention not to confuse a membershipvalue and a confidencevalue. For example, when the truthvalue of a sentence is 50%, the 50% as the membershipvalue of "Y" and the 50% as the confidencevalue of "is" are not the same. In the case of a coin tossed up, someone believes "head, 50%." But this means that the degree of his confidencevalue is 50% and doesn't mean that the membershipvalue is 50%. The latter concludes "50% head and 50% tail." This is the status of a coin which is like a standing wheel of a bicycle.
You should pay attention to this point.
(2) confusion of objects
You should also pay attention to the other point.
When a membershipvalue or a confidencevalue is shown, the object is a specified real thing. When a probability is shown, the object is a supposed thing in an assumptive event. Both are different. For example, at the time one doesn't look at a coin, what exists as a coin in the real world and what is imagined in an assumptive event are different. You should not confuse both objects. Physicists, however, sometimes confuse them. The clown of King Lear might say, "Mad men and drunken men often confuse imagination and reality, and so do physicists."
In the explanation above, I told two points which you should pay attention to. You must not confuse these different values. By the way, what will happen if you confuse these values? Of course, you will get strange conclusions. One of them is Schrodinger's Cat.

"Am I alive or dead? It is decided by your eyes.
Are you alive or dead? It is decided by my eyes.
If my eyes are closed, all the world would be dimmed."Schrodinger's Cat
Part (1)
Schrodinger's Cat  this problem is very famous. Every one who reads this homepage would know it well. However, here I'd like to sum it up now briefly.
There is a system which kills a cat when a type of quantum is detected by a detector.
This system links the probability of the existence of a quantum to the cat's fate of life or death.
Here you must pay attention to the previous two points.
(1) When you get a mid truthvalue (of the cat's being alive), you must not confuse a probability and a membershipvalue as the factor which brings the truthvalue.
Let the truthvalue of the sentence "The cat is alive" be 50%. Then 50% is a probability. This means that this sentence is true in 50% events of all events. This doesn't mean that the membershipvalue is 50%. The 50% as membershipvalue gives the status of being half alive and half dead, like a status of being a vegetable or like a status of a man whose heart is almost stopping when he is going to die. You must not confuse both.
(2) The probability of the existence of a quantum brings the truthvalue about the supposed cat in an assumptive event. It is not the truthvalue about the real cat in this world. You must not confuse both objects.
See the next picture.
An assumptive event The real world Here the detector gives a value, which is transferred through
the wire to the killing machine.
Now you must pay attention.
In an assumptive event, both the truthvalue at the stage of the detector and the truthvalue about an assumptive cat are the same. It is a probability. The observer can get a probability about the supposed cat.
In the real world, the value about the real cat is not a probability. Why? Because this real cat exist only one and there is only one event. This doesn't meet the required condition of probability.  The condition: "If the number of events is large enough."
The value that brings the truthvalue is not a probability. Then, what brings the truthvalue about the real cat? It is not a membershipvalue but a confidencevalue, of course.
(Usually, the truth value about a unique event is not a probability but a confidencevalue. For example, such an event as "Aliens exist in the cosmos" or "It will rain tomorrow" is a unique event, about which we can not get a probability but a confidencevalue.)
In the real world, the observer get a confidencevalue about the real cat. It is not a probability. However, somebody confuses these two values and mistakes a probability for a membershipvalue. This misunderstanding brings such a strange idea as "The cat is half alive and half dead." (i.e. the membershipvalue is 50%.)
To sum up, the idea such as "The cat is half alive and half dead" is an error that is born from the confusion of two values (a membershipvalue and a confidencevalue).
Part (2)
There is the other saying for Schrodinger's Cat as the following.
"Before he observes, It is not decided whether the cat is alive or dead. But when he observes the cat, its fate of life or death is decided. Thus it is the observation that decides the cat's fate of life or death."
(i.e. Before he observes it, the truthvalue of being alive was a mid value such as 40%. But when he observes, the truthvalue of being alive changes to 0% or 100%  in a moment.)
On the other hand, there is an opposite saying as the following.
"The cat's fate of life or death must be decided independently. Observation can not have effect on it."
Thus there are two insistences. Both seem to be valid and both conflict. This is a paradox.
This paradox can be solved if you apply to it what I have already shown. But, how?
In the paradox above, the following two propositions seemed to be valid.
"It is the observation that decides the cat's status of life or death."
"The cat's status of life or death is decided independently. with no relation to the observation."
Both propositions conflict. Therefore one is right and the other is wrong. Then, which is right?
Of course the latter is right. This would be obvious by intuition. Remember the previous phrases.
"Am I alive or dead? It is decided by your eyes.
Are you alive or dead? It is decided by my eyes.
If my eyes are closed, all the world would be dimmed."
The cat's eyes cannot decide our fate. Our eyes cannot decide Schrodinger's cat's fate. Thus, of the two propositions, the latter is right and the former is wrong. That is, the thought "the observation decides the cat's status of life or death" is wrong.
Why is it wrong? Is also quantum theory of nowadays wrong?
No. What is wrong is not quantum theory itself but its interpretation of probability. Then, where is its interpretation wrong?
Quantum theory uses mid truthvalues (e.g. 40%). These truthvalues are probability. And probability is probability. It is nothing but probability. However, somebody confuses these mid truthvalues with confidencevalues. Such a confusion is wrong.
We will consider the details of this point in the followings.
When he observes the cat, it seems that one truthvalue changes from a mid value to 0% or 100% in a moment. (e.g. 40% > 0%). But it is not right. The value before the observation is a value about the supposed cat in an assumptive event. It is a probability. The value after the observation is a value about the real cat in the real world. It is a confidencevalue. Both are different values. That is, there is no one truthvalue that changes from a mid value to 0% or 100%. There are two truthvalues and one takes the place of the other. It is because the real cat takes the place of the supposed cat for the observer's mind.
To say more precisely, we can tell as the followings.
The value that the observer holds from beginning to end is the confidencevalue about the real cat. This confidencevalue wants a ground  a ground for his confidence.
Before he observes, he used probability as a ground. (It is as same as the case of a coin which is tossed up. Usual person uses probability as a ground of his confidencevalue and gets 50% as his confidencevalue. Many scientists believe this is the right way. Gamblers, however, do not take this way. Gamblers use their intuition instead of probability. Each gambler believes his way. In addition, there are also such persons that believe jinxes. For example, "If I meet a black cat, I am unlucky today." Thus, grounds of confidencevalues are different among people. Only physicists believe probability absolutely.)
After he observes, however, he uses as a ground what his eyes have just seen in stead of what the probability theory tells. At this moment his confidencevalue changes from a mid value to 0% or 100%.
In the paradox of Schrodinger's Cat, a probability seems to change in a moment. However, it is not a probability but a confidencevalue that changes in a moment. This occurs because the object of his mind changes from the supposed cat to the real cat in a moment.
To sum up, Schrodinger's Cat is a paradoxy born from two confusions. It seems to be an enigma which has deep roots in nature but in reality it is nothing but a mystery born from a shallow understanding by human beings.
[ Epilogue ]
The paradox has been solved. At the last of this homepage, I'd like to add some words. 
Schrodinger's cat would say nothing but my lovely cat would say:
"Am I alive or dead? It is decided by God.
Are you alive or dead? It is decided by God.
If your eyes of mind are half closed, all the world is dimmed.
Open your eyes like I do. Mew, mew."
