In physics there are bifurcations and symmetry breaking. What happens then if I solve some transient problem for a system where a bifurcation or symmetry breaking happens. How the choice will be made?



We would use statistics to model such a scenario or, if able to access infinite computational power, we would compute faithful simulations of the solutions and see which best matches the environmental requirements of the universes from which those bifurcations or any other form of symmetry breaking occurs. Given infinite computational powers there is no such thing as randomness in a 3-p sense. This is known as "omniscience". We have seen it before...

One thing that most models of statistic fail to sample is the environment in which a stochastic event occurs, thus they integrate over them and smears out the very facts that might otherwise inform us of exactly how and why a "choice was made".
