Two fascinating (and very different) approaches are presented to derive Quantim 
Mechanics main practical tool (e.g. Born's rule). Wonder what some of the 
physicists on here think about this research?
I find the argument that no laws is the fundamental law... and that the 
universe and its laws are emergent guided by subtle mathematical statistical 
phenomena, at the same time both alluring and annoying.... it is somehow 
unsatisfactory.... like being served a quite empty plate with nice garnish for 
dinner.
One example of emergence from chaotic conditions is how traffic jams (aka 
density waves) can emerge from chaotic initial conditions, becoming self 
re-enforcing within local domains of influence... for those unlucky to be stuck 
in them. Density wave emergence is seen across scale, for example the spiral 
arms of galaxies can be explained as giant gravitational pile ups with some 
fundamentally similar parallels to say a rush hour traffic jam, except on 
vastly different scales of course and due to other different factors, in the 
galactic case the emergent effects of a vast number of gravitational 
inter-actions as stars migrate through these arms on their grand voyages around 
the galactic core.
This paired with the corollary argument that any attempt to discover a 
fundamental law seems doomed to the infinite regression of then needing to 
explain what this foundation itself rests upon.... leading to the "it's turtles 
all the way down" hall of mirrors carnival house... head-banger. 
Perhaps, as Wheeler argued, the world is a self-synthesizing system, and the 
seeming order we observe, is emergent... a law without law.

The new work promises to give researchers a better grip on the core mystery of 
quantum mechanics.
