The Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart shows the danger of throwing dice to decide the physics of your life.
The previous post Two Proofs of Planck’s Law vs Backradiation illustrates the danger of introducing statistics into physics: CO2 alarmism exploits the concept of backradiation to send the message that the atmospheric trace gas can CO2 cause global overheating. To set the World on alarm without good reason is dangerous.
The trouble with statistics as physics is that the completely essential cause-effect aspect of physics is broken: In statistical physics, electrons and atoms are supposed to jump around by throwing dice and a radiating body is likewise supposed to throw dice to decide to emit a quantum of energy or not.
By throwing dice the cause-effect connection is broken: Things just happen according to the dice as if effects arise without cause.
The result is that physics as realities taking place independent of human observations, like the evolution of weather and climate, is replaced by human conceptions of physics e.g. in the form of statistics. Physical reality is thus replaced by human conceptions of reality.
Statistical physicists do not claim that electrons literally throw dice, only that we can can think of them as throwing dice. Our lack of knowledge as to what makes an electron do this or that, is thus translated into knowledge that electrons throw dice. Non-knowledge is transformed into knowledge. The less you know the better becomes your statistics with the normal distribution as the ultimate precision.
It does not take much fantasy to understand that this transformation from non-knowledge into knowledge, if used in the wrong way, can be dangerous. To break the cause-effect connection can be dangerous because it opens to the possibility that anything can happen. And if anything can happen, then there is reason to send out alarm.
And to send alarm can serve a purpose which is harmful for the people.
