Anyway – physicists aren’t sure if QM is truly random or not… there are underlying theories for both arguments but with current technology we can’t test them. 0 Reply tai D 10 years ago I’m drinking the blood of christ out of a beer bottle.

All events are rather very highly structured. For example, when they draw a lottery number, given all the forces at work, there is only one possible combination of winning numbers. It is not at all a random evernt — it is virtually ordered by nature! 0 Reply Atheist Friend 10 years ago How is this a question for religion and spirituality? 0 Reply moryonder 10 years ago With a funny accent, or perhaps while wearing a tuxedo with no pants. 0 Reply Rob P 10 years ago http://www.xomba.com/quantum_mechanics_religion_free_will_purpose_and_human_events_comprehensive_view_each As any self-respecting physicist will tell you, especially one trained in quantum theorem, that the universe does not need obey the logic and understanding of humanity, and in most cases will utterly suprise you once you’ve made firm your beliefs. How very random of mother nature. Blessings 0 Reply Mia 10 years ago Quantum entanglement I believe still contains elements of randomness occuring in its fundamental functions. The only thing is that random changes in one system or particle is linked such that it induces and affects changes in another. Hence they are entangled. Quantum physics is fundamentally random. Its the only theory within the fabric of modern physics that integrates randomness. This fact was very disturbing to physicists like Einstein who invented quantum physics. However, its intrinsic randomness has been confirmed over and over again by theoretical and experimental research conducted since. 0 Reply Related Why do wushu and tai chi practitioners always wear satin?
