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%!

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
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
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 from 0.00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 seconds all the way to
4.90000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 seconds
And thats not even the smallest the numbers go either.
