Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
If "universe" is locally predictable in one direction (which becomes "axis of time"), then self-replicating features (life) can emerge. In the case of our universe, there is atomic/molecular level complex and yet locally perfectly predictable, that enabled (under "perfect circumstances"?) life forms. atomic/molecular level isolates low level quantum weirdness. After all, life doesn't care if this function is predictable at ALL levels, molecular level is enough, and it happens to be good for many other reasons. There is so many random things needed for universe to sustain life, that probably insignificantly small portion of functions has any self-replicating (living) features, let alone intelligent.
Why should I be surprised by weirdness of quantum world then? It never needed to be predictable in our direction of time.
