I give a fairly detailed answer to what quantum randomness is and what it 
applies to in my New Topic post "Another shot at how spacetime emerges from 
computational reality".

Basically nature must choose randomly when it aligns the separate spacetime 
networks that arise from particle property conservation when particles 
computationally interact. That's because there can be no deterministic way 
to align separate spacetimes, so nature must choose randomly among the 
available possibilities.....
