Scientist has been accumulating their knowledge to explore the mystery of the universe.
‘God doesn’t throw dice’ is the most famous quote by Albert Einstein when he was resisting the fundamental concept of Quantum Mechanics that the universe are totally random.

However, we can argue what is the definition of ‘random’?
Being random can be adopted in the format of ‘being random’. What if the randomness has been already predestined by the universe to be appeared randomly? Even all the events happens randomly neither predestined, phenomenon is just only a phenomenon. We humans have unique quirks and tendencies, memory and imagination, and this enable us to assign a meaning to phenomenon.
