There's an immense amount of "chance" (indeterminacy) from the 1st person perspective of the machine. Read the UDA (in Bruno's SANE2004 paper). The simplest example is the third step of the UDA. If someone 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 of UDA).
