If I flip a coin 1,500 times odds are 50/50 right. That means 750 heads and 750 tails. Thats basic math which is found to be correct. But in reality odds of flippin a coin 1,500 times and getting 750 for both sides is more like 1 in 1,000,000
is infinity real? then if I throw a rock and it took 5 seconds to hit a guy in the head. If infinity is real it will never get there

So basically the universe is deterministic?
each momentary state of the world entails all of its future states
it must be possible (in principle) to offer a causal explanation for everything that happens.
I am saying that every unique moment of Universal existence exists synchronously, Here! Now!

So the whole of the universe and EVERYTHING has happened, is happening and will happen at the same time? Right here and now?
That doesn't answer the question why it is happening to you and me and everyone else right now.

Sorry I didn't explain correctly. You are experiencing reality right now. Why now, not in the past or the future?
I know this is a very basic philosophy but for others to understand here it comes:
You are going through time, correct? You are aging, right?
Why now?
You are either never born or never existed even after you were born and died.
We are existing right now.
I don't know how to explain it right now

People love the Golden ratio 1.61803398875 But what about the rest of the decimal places. It get more wrong the further down the rabbit whole doesent it? so we'll just stop at 1.61803398875

What would that mean in laymans terms?

This isn’t a correct statement.The golden ratio is the ratio 1:0.618(phi) or 1:1.618(Phi).It is calculated by this equation
√5+1÷2=1.618033988749895……..(Phi)
it’s reciprocal phi is calculated:
1÷1.618033988749895=0.618033988749895
This is the only number that has this reciprocal ratio to “1”
That is the static real world application Phi even though it is irrational(like Pi) and is infinite because it never resolves.The most realistic(real reality) equation for phi-Phi is progressive.It is calculated using the Fibonacci sequence.
0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,233,…etc to infinity.
Divide any adjacent Fn (after 1) and they will be “progressive” (my term)Phi or phi.For example the earliest sum of phi-Phi is
Fn3÷Fn4=0.666……
Fn5÷Fn4=1.666….
2÷3=0.666.......
5÷3=1.666....
phi-Phi stabilizes for infinity at 0.618….1.618…..at
Fn11÷Fn12=0.61805555555….
Fn13÷Fn12=1.61805555555….
89÷144=0.61805555555555….
233÷144=1.6180555555555…
phi-Phi becomes equivalent to mathematical static phi-Phi at
Fn36÷Fn37=0.618033988749895…
Fn38÷ Fn37=1.618033988749895…
14,930,352÷24,157,817=0.618033988749895…
39,088,169÷24,157,817=1.618033988749895…
As the Fn grow larger they sum closer to .618 when calculated as above... but never reach resolve.However the numbers do not grow more wrong from the Golden ratio but more right.
no you don't grasp the idea. 2 coins 50/50 chance. 4 coins 50/50 chance. 3 coins is a 33.33333.. Chance. Basic math as OP mentioned.

Actually it's not 50/50.
That means 750 heads and 750 tails.
If it were 50/50 it would not mean that.
Thats basic math which is found to be correct.
How is it correct when it's wrong?
But in reality odds of flippin a coin 1,500 times and getting 750 for both sides is more like 1 in 1,000,000
It really seems the problem is you have no idea what probability means.
Its not what side shows after the coin has fallen. It's about all the probable choices and/or options it has to land while it is still in the air flipping and/or undecided. Not after the fact.

"As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality."
-- Albert Einstein
'Math' exists in the imagination, like a Rubic's cube of the mind.
It describes limited imaginary things, thus Einstein's quote.
The term 'probability' is a funny thing!
When I flip a coin and it lands on tails, what is the probability that it landed on tails?
100%!

And thats not even the smallest the numbers go either.
