I will roll the dice and take delight in my suffering.”

“There is no such thing as randomness. No one who could detect every force operating on a pair of dice would ever play dice games, because there would never be any doubt about the outcome. The randomness, such as it is, applies to our ignorance of the possible outcomes. It doesn’t apply to the outcomes themselves. They are 100% determined and are not random in the slightest. Scientists have become so confused by this that they now imagine that things really do happen randomly, i.e. for no reason at all.”
Thomas Stark, God Is Mathematics: The Proofs of the Eternal Existence of Mathematics

“In the first half of the second millennium A.D., a revolutionary form of gambling swept across Asia and Europe.

David G. Schwartz, Roll the Bones: The History of Gambling

“Wavefunction collapse is anything other than “random”. If you could really see what was going on, you would see that nothing ever happens randomly, any more than a dice throw produces a genuinely randomly outcome (if you could see what was going on, all the forces in play, you would know exactly what the outcome would be). Sensory ignorance is not ontological uncertainty. Reality knows exactly what it is doing even if you don’t!”
David Sinclair, Universals Versus Particulars: The Ultimate Intellectual War
