I've always been uncomfortable with Einstein's words here
With his profound Gifts of Reason, and dare we say, Vision
Einstein was able to look “Differently” at
our understanding of Physics.
But to state these words,
especially from a Jewish perspective,
might be thought of as... blasphemous
Better would be to say,
I cannot comprehend a Physics where G-d Rolls Dice
It would seem to be a breach in Causality and Determinism,
both strong features of our understanding of the Universe
Rolling dice doesn’t diminish casuality. It just asserts that we are unable to predict it exactly, rather that the act of rolling dice creates new information.
When the differential equations are non-linear, chaotic, with sensitive dependence on initial condition, then accurate prediction of the future is not possible except in the most trivial sense (the temperature close to now will be similar to the temperature now).
That is, among other things, why global warming is bunk. No finite set of past temperature data sets is adequate to predict nontrivial future states BECAUSE the Navier Stokes equations are chaotic, non-linear, with sensitive dependence on initial conditions.
