Bruno I really didn't need your help on that, I already knew that I can't
always successfully predict what I will see after I open a door.

No, the founders of Quantum Mechanics were saying 2 things that neither
Pascal or Boltzman were:

1) Some events have no cause.
2) Probability is a property of the thing itself and not just a measure of
our lack of information.

The sort of indeterminacy you're talking about was first discovered by
Professor Og of Caveman University who didn't write in the journal
Paleolithic Times because Professor Og didn't know how to write.

The trouble is that Bruno Marchal is unable to say who exactly is that is
experiencing this "1-view".  Without using pronouns please explain who the
hell Mr. 1 is and then maybe I can answer your questions.
