I never really buyed the quantum mechanics idea, i think the
pseudo-indeterministic observations just result from the current
inability to measure it right cause we lack the tools and knowledge.
Einstein said something like "God doesn't dice" but even if God
DOES dice there are still physical rules which define what the
outcome of the game will be. I think true randomness does not
exists, it is rather an illusion like free will for instance.
