Hello, I just wanted to share my idea of why random seems to exist and how it’s closely related to time, if you have any insight feel free to add it here, okay let’s begin, if you could have the exact calculation to throw a rock, you’ll find it’s exact position(s) along with what it contains, But what about substraction? with time factored in? good question, my point is it’s a lot harder to subtract than add, especially with time such as time passing by, fact is things change over time, landscapes, people, things, stuff, and so on, even molecules can change over time, so this is why random can exist (though we don’t have enough science yet to disprove this or prove this to be 100 percent true) but we have trouble subtracting what can happen (especially with time, picture thousands of years, or whatever image you can summon in your mind with the best of your ability), this makes random possible, well kinda.
Think of the earth, the random minerals, elements, (found at certain spots, but also seemingly found randomly (you have to go looking for it to find it, spread across and around every place, ESP across time span too, so heres my thoughts on it to clarify, this is about a mathematical equation, involving physics and how it works, and to further my point of why random seems to exist, but the point is that it’s a lot easier to add even with greater speed than subtraction, though subtraction takes longer and is more difficult, if you could throw a rock and had the mathematical equation for it, you would know where it bounces, lands, etc, SO here’s some examples of random, we can create an organism that is completely unique through procreation and feeding it, giving it a good enviroment or something along those lines with a unique perspective (stop here, don’t further question it) I will explain, it’s essentially random, but we cant prove or disprove it, (thus why we see random events occuring) But you have no way of calculating the minerals, rocks, they are not the same as every other rock that ever existed on earth, and it’s hard to calculate everything precisely as time is passing by, so therefore the nutrients and stuff we get are at the very least, partially random, so random DOES exist!, but it is also influenced by genetics, and certain factors to a certain degree or extent, as I mentioned but also possibly not as it’s a heavy topic to cover, Take away point, no way of subtraction combined with time and this makes it for that adding over time is hard to calculate and not exactly precise so there’s another way random can exist even with our efficient mechanism of adding things and measuring it, etc. Only when we are adding, such as throwing a rock, and reduce it into smaller fractions we can get the exact amount of everything in it, try to do this with subtraction or sometimes adding, after significant time passes, well it’s a lot harder if not impossible, and WA LA you got random, so our enviroment is kinda random when working in a certain way, thus explaining seemingly random events, why learning disabilities may be connected to enviromental factors, but of course genetic factors can occur and contribute it anything like that, it can also be seemingly seperate, thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed.
Next time you have a hot beverage, steaming drink, like coffee, lattes, tea or anything similar, think about the steam, the water evaporating, rising up in the air, (as heat rises) along with whatever else is turning into vapour/rising up with the heat and water and how it’s travelling around the enviroment, you can’t know exactly where all of it is going, and there’s a small example of random for you. IT could be putting humidity in the air, changing the temperature slightly, and a bunch of other little variables like dulling your appetite after you drink it and maybe you eat less because of it.
I just glanced over this and felt the need to add a bit more input, even if you divide something to get the sum of something, let’s be realistic, time is still passing, things are changing and it won’t provide a 100% accurate answer even if it’s only changed ever so slightly, assuming this is true, the reason I didn’t post how division can contribute to randomness is because subtraction is similar and can be used to provide the same answers.
Though now you can probably understand.
