The percentage of freedom

It would be very interesting if we

knew this percentage of freedom.

If we knew it we would be able

to calculate how far the accuracy
of the Natural Law reaches, and
until what point we can hope to
improve our prediction.

This percentage of freedom however is not always the same;
it varies from phenomenon to phenomenon.

Πλαίσιο κειμένου: If we have a phenomenon where small interferences 
of freedom weaken, then the degree of freedom 
that we can expect to find, will be small.

As an example we could consider

the motion of a large mass in a high
vacuum where we have no friction,
that is to say collisions, to allow
more freedom.

In the movement of a planet around

the Sun, the collision with a particle
moving uncontrolled in space will
not have a big impact.

There we can count on
high accuracy for our prognosis.

Πλαίσιο κειμένου: If we have a phenomenon of very high amplification, where 
the effect of some free motion at the atomic level increases excessively, then the degree of freedom will be much larger.

For example in an electric discharge

in the form of lightning, where the
initial motion of a single ion induces
a whole "electric cataract",

or in a chemical explosion,

in which an initial free radical leads
to the conversion of a mass many
times greater,

we should not expect repeatable behaviour
nor should we hope for the possibility to make
an accurate prognosis.
