|Determinism, philosophy: the idea that events and mental states occur due to strict laws and are therefore determined in advance. For a prediction one only has to know the environmental conditions. The fact that we do not know if determinism is true is sometimes explained by our incomplete knowledge of the environment. See also indeterminism, strict laws, prediction, probability, probabilism.|

Determinism / Deutsch: would not even in principle lead to complete predictability, because we would have to know what has happened in all universes, but each of us can only perceive one universe directly.
