  1. Randomness as a fundamental property of nature: The phenomena observed in the world of quantum mechanics are thought to involve true randomness, that is, it’s not that they seem random to us because we lack full knowledge of all the factors involved or the computational power to build a predictive model if we knew them all; no, it’s a matter of real and fundamental randomness.
