Would this be accurate:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We can say that our universe is not deterministic because we can't identify, with arbitrary precision, what will happen with each particle on the quantum level (due to HUP, entanglement, etc). However, they are all part of a statistical framework/wavefunction which we can describe deterministically.

In other words, it'd be like if we couldn't predict the roll of a die (random), but could describe it statistically (deterministically). Would this be accurate?

Does this mean that causality doesn't exist on the macro level (technically-speaking), but rather just a large probability where things causally turn out due to statistical projections at near-100% levels?
