An interesting question

The fact that we can continually improve the accuracy

of our predictions could lead us to the question:

          All right, we are ignorant and incapable.
Therefore we cannot accurately describe the
Natural Law and our predictions are inaccurate.
How accurately, however, can the Natural Law
determine what will happen?

This question seems to be superfluous,

because the answer is rather obvious:

Πλαίσιο κειμένου: The Natural Law must determine exactly what happens.

Didn’t we agree

that every event in the Cosmos
takes place under its leadership?

We will not discuss other
"external interventions".

It is not the responsibility of Physics to do this.

If the Natural Law determines only approximately what happens,

if it does not govern one hundred per cent of the world,
if it is, say, responsible only for 99% then who defines
the remaining 1% ?

Πλαίσιο κειμένου: Who is this "small shareholder" who has 
this tiny 1% of power over the World?

And one more thing:

If there existed this little non-deterministic percentage,
not controlled by the Natural Law (what is inevitable we
have already calculated to be 99%), would it always
be constant or could it change from phenomenon
to phenomenon?

Could it perhaps become 10% or 50% or even more?

Then there must be phenomena

where, no matter how clever we are at looking,
we will never find their determinism.

Maybe we can find a part that is deterministic,

but the rest is uncontrolled!

It will remain forever mysterious

and will appear at one time in one
form and next time in another.

Not being subject to determinism
it would not be obliged to appear
always in the same form.
