You know, this is a good place to think about things. In the realms of mathematics.
If the original post is correct, then everything has a pattern, and nothing is random. I cannot agree with this fully. To an extent, it may be
possible that electrons as stated above have some sort of pattern. But, I find it unlikely.
For this to be correct, then free will would necessarily have to cease to exist. I cannot buy into believing that I cannot choose freely. When we
make a decision, it is either ours, or it is prescripted. If everything has a pattern, and no numbers are really random, then neither are our
What if I was to choose to look closely at an electron. The closer we look, the more disruptive we are to the observed. This is basically the
uncertainty we talk about. If I choose to look, I disrupt by my choice. This disruption could cause a chain reaction. The chain reaction itself may
be able to be mathematically predicted. However, my choice to cause it is my choice, and not the result of a complex mathematical formula.
This is my opinion. I hope I am correct. it would be miserable knowing I had no choice.
