  Heisenberg Cut

The Heisenberg cut is a concept of physics, hence inconceivable without the Cartesian cut. It is required for the separation of a material object from its material environment, e.g., of an observed system from an observing apparatus. It is possible to formalize the concept of the Heisenberg cut quantum theoretically. Its main characteristics is the suppression of nonlocal Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) correlations such that a fundamental holism of quantum systems is lost and objects and disentangled tools of observation can be distinguished.
