"[T]he nature of the human being is to have free will. ... That means at any given moment, no matter what the prior background and personal history, every single human being — all seven billion of us — is utterly unpredictable. As utterly unpredictable as whether in a classic quantum-mechanics thought experiment Schrodinger’s cat is alive or dead. It’s actually this utter unpredictability that raises the blood pressure of the political class after every incident." (01/14/11)
