...but not yet
I am a first-world, able-bodied, happily-married, white male, not young, not old, securely employed with benefits.

There is an unshakable calm on the brink, the trickle down...
Quantum physics says goodbye to reality →
thequantumlife: Some physicists are uncomfortable with the idea that all individual quantum events are innately random. This is why many have proposed more complete theories, which suggest that events are at least partially governed by extra “hidden variables”.
