A very interesting concept indeed

One which we don't have a real answer for. Are dice rolls random? Definitely not, they are completely based on physics and 100% predictable if you know all the involved variables. The only object we know of that seems to actually behave in a truly random way is subatomic particles. To the best experiments in quantum physics, some particles as best we can tell will pick their state immediately upon being observed. Prior to being observed, they seem to exist in multiple places at once. This movement, and the final selection they take when observed, could potentially be truly random. But there may just be variables we don't know about, or don't know how to factor in (such as "free will", whatever that means). I am really looking forward to the future of physics, only the past few generations have gotten to witness such an incredible shift in our understanding of how the world works.
