England fly-half Jonny Wilkinson has revealed the secret of his new-found relaxed approach to life - the joys of quantum physics and Buddhism.
World Cup glory to inner peace via Schrodinger's Cat is certainly a road less travelled, but his interest in Erwin Schrodinger's famous thought experiment raises an intriguing posibility.
Schrodinger came up with his idea to illustrate the paradox of the sub-atomic world.
Put very simply, the experiment involves a poor moggy locked in a box for a specific time with a vial of cyanide that has a 50-50 chance of breaking and killing the cat.
As it is not being observed, according to quantum physics, the fearful feline is both alive and dead at the same time, which is clearly impossible.
The experiment shows that in the "real" world, it is impossible to be in two different states at the same time, but it is certainly possible at the sub-atomic level.
Experiments done with tiny guns show that a sub-atomic bullet (such as a stream of photons) can pass through two holes at once – ie a particle can be in two or more states or places at any given moment.
It is a neat trick and given his legendary powers of focus, Jonny is surely the man to understand the process well enough to start to operate in a similar fashion.
All it needs is for BBC rugby experts Eddie Butler and Brian Moore to then observe him, and it's over to Eddie for the commentary.
"And now it's Wilkinson, who passes to Wilkinson, who scissors with Wilkinson..."
