uh, neil degrasse tyson, i hate to burst your bubble, but probability is not certainty. the mathematical difference between 99.99 & 100 is infinite; remember zeno’s paradox??
“In 1977, physicists E. C. G. Sudarshan and B. Misra studying quantum mechanics discovered that the dynamical evolution (motion) of a quantum system can be hindered (or even inhibited) through observation of the system. This effect is usually called the “quantum Zeno effect” as it is strongly reminiscent of Zeno’s arrow paradox. This effect was first theorized in 1958.”
us poets & writers call it “the butterfly effect,” don’t we?
