If we did know the velocities and positions of all particles, there would still be even more information that would be needed. Gravity is one element
Indy, what about radioactive decay, which causes loss of information(Entropy)? Nuclear reactions aside, there may still be circumstances that could
invalidate predeterminism by particle-wave duality.
Let's take photons for example, under certain observations the photons become particles(discreet matter), which given the above circumstance would
allow us to track light anywhere in the universe. On the other hand, under other observations the photon collapse into light waves(optic energy), our
knowledge of that beam of light would be lost, except what we could learn from it's wave properties (wavelength, amplitude, chroma, etc). Let's look
at a possible third scenario, what if we were able to use quantum entanglement on half of the stream of photons. Then from half of the stream that is
untangled, make half of them into a waveform, record info. Observe and record the latter half of non-tangled photons, record info. The other half that
is to be entangled we would leave the circumstances so as to keep them in a particle state, one third of these would be entangled with another third
for eventual quantum teleportation. This would leave a final third as a control group to compare against the teleported photons.
In summary, by the previously mentioned application, we would be able to know it's normal particle behavior at a specific instant, we would be able
to know it's waveform behavior at a specific instant as well. Finally we could also make discreet changes in the entangled set and modify their
distance at an instant, to see if there is any correlation to it's position by comparing it to it's original non-teleported control group. I chose
the photon as an example since it is not necessarily matter 100% of the time, but comparatively mundane.
Schrodinger's Cat for that special moment might be a tad worried!
