I don't think that Bell's inequality shows indeterminacy, m3aning randomness, or chance. It does show entanglement. There are quantum that are reversible (some are macroscopic). In most measurements there is quantum decoherence, which breaks up entanglement, and has been compared to

A talk was recently posted where Searle and Floridi broach this matter, but from a foundational vista and framed in a context of artificial intelligence. For those who have not seen it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6o_7HeowY8 My own few exchanges with Searle on this issue, and on biological

Dear FIS, The noble conquest of choosing the right method of understanding information divides this learned society. Some argue that pre-Platonic approaches towards understanding Nature are pre-scientific and therefore can be dismissed out of hand. Let us imagine that the Neanderthals have
