Abstract

In this paper we propose a master equation which contains a damping term universally violating the quantum mechanics of massive systems. From this equation follows that the quantum mechanical superposition principle breaks down if the states have radically different mass distributions. The damping of the coherence appears on a reasonable scale of masses and distances.
