An important decision

Very nice physical considerations are these
that we are making here, don’t you think?

If we adopt a limited validity

of the Natural Law we are
on the way to abolishing Physics.

Πλαίσιο κειμένου: Abandoning our belief in determinism we leave 
the floodgates open to every superstition, mysticism 
and other magic, from which we believed 
ourselves to be free for many centuries now.

Now we have to abolish every science, because all are
based on the principle of the existence of determinism.

Πλαίσιο κειμένου: And we have to reject our applications because 
they too are based on the natural sciences.

From now on, if we for example

want to build an aircraft,
instead of making calculations
we will perform exorcisms.

Next we will hang an amulet around the neck of the pilot

and finally we will give the order to take off by
whispering some incantations.

Πλαίσιο κειμένου: Here we must make a decision.
There is no room for half-truths.
Either the Natural Law rules 
the world or it does not.

The only correct answer

is that the Natural Law
defines completely what
happens in the Cosmos.

It determines it with absolute precision.

Not with an accuracy of 99.999999 ... (several thousands of nines) but of 100%.

Full stop.

Πλαίσιο κειμένου: The state, in which we will find the World
at the next moment, is absolutely certain.
Nothing unexpected can happen, nothing
not provided for by the Natural Law.

The state in the immediate future
is exactly predetermined.
It is determined by the state of the
present time and the Natural Law.

Due to incomplete knowledge

we are, of course, not able to predict exactly
what this state will be and although our ability to
predict constantly improves, it may be that we
never achieve an absolutely exact prognosis.

This however does not prevent the Natural Law
from determining exactly what will happen.
