Essay Abstract

Randomness is somewhat opposite to determinism. This essay tries to put this two on the same page. It argues the premise where randomness is a consequence of a deterministic process. It also provides yet another viewpoint on the hidden variable theory.

Dear Dr Rade Vuckovac,

Thank you for giving us a simple and wonderful essay.!!

Your view.........n-body problem; Even in Newton times, the motions of more than two orbiting bodies were considered as a problem. Currently, we are left with numerical methods and simulations. Former is an approximation and butterfly effect prone. The later is basically computational experiments, which are preferable option for n ? body system investigation [4, 5]......................

I have some observations on this point. I am working on the Dynamic Universe Model for the last 40 years. It is N- body problem solution. I solved 2,3,4... 25000 bodies solution. Mainstream dont recognize it as it says No blackholes, No singularities, no infinities etc. It was created and developed by me under the guidance of Goddess VAK. Many of its predictions came true.

I think i got a lot to discuss with you. By seeing your response I discuss further.

Hope you will have some spare time to see my essay " A properly deciding, Computing and Predicting new theory’s Philosophy "

Best regards

Dear =snp,

Thank you for your interest. I read your essay and it looks very reasonable. Not sure that I understand it all but again I am usually slow with new concepts. As I see (excuse my ignorance) your Dynamic Universe Model uses simulation tools. The article (if you did not seen it before) http://nautil.us/issue/78/atmospheres/are-neural-networks-ab
out-to-reinvent-physics has an interesting take on 3 body problem.

Dear Rade,

What a great essay! I have also enjoyed many of the references you provided, one which I found myself when I was considering how the Oracle might be useful to bitcoin security. Micheal Green answered that quite well in your reference.

I have given you a good rating, I hope you get many more as your essay deserves.

Regards

Dear Rade Vuckovac!

We are happy to inform you that we rated your essay 10 points. You correctly posed the dilemma of unpredictability and randomness. But one remark must be added. In our opinion, the essence of the issue is more complicated. Еven the events of the past retain their uncertainty - according to the Heisenberg uncertainty relation. That is, not only the FUTURE is uncertain, but even the PAST (at least for microparticles).

Truly yours,

Pavel Poluian and Dmitry Lichargin,

Siberian Federal University.

Dear Pavel and Dmitry

Thank you very much for your time, interest and rating of my writings. Your remarks are correct. A fascinating take (I did not realise) on past and uncertainty.

Best Regards,

Rade
