## Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm womdering if real quantum randomness is important for evolution to work. In a universe without randomness i.e. where the future is predetermined, the amount of information contained inside the universe would be constant. No matter how old it is, the information content of the universe would be the same as that of the equations describing the laws of physics there. So is it possible for life to evolve anyway and what is the minimum amount of information necessary for complex lifeforms to emerge?

What about simulating evolution in a computer? If the simulation uses only pseudo random numbers will that put limits on the complexity of the virtual lifeforms?
