There's an immense amount of "chance" (indeterminacy) from the 1st

makes 2 duplicate instances/copies of their selves (possible if brain
admits a digital substitution level), we can expect to be either one or
the other copy, with 1/2 probability. It's fairer than a classical coin
toss, and likely the origin of the quantum nature of reality (see rest
If everything is made of numbers (as in COMP) which can express
states to an arbitrary degree of precision, is there any room for chance or
probability? And if so, how do they arise? (If you've been over this before,
please refer me to the relevant posts, thanks.) marty a.
