If there were nonlocal hidden variables that are indeterministic and doesn't obey counterfactual definiteness. What terms should they be called. I think hidden variable should only be reserved for deterministic counterfactual definite.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What then should we refer to indeterministic non-counterfactual definiteness. You may state contextuality? But contextuality is not hidden variables. I'm referring to actual processes in say the quantum vacuum that can produce stochastic randomness in the wave function. What term should we refer to it? Objective collapse? but it's not about collapse and not objective.

Please suggest a term.
