My original answer was in context of human choices (FW?) As to QM, my layman's view is that in order to produce and sustain a predictable pattern of anything it would have to follow some mathematical (recognizable) function. IMO, the *inflationary epoch* is the creative but chaotic event when we are uncertain on how it could have expanded at FTL and why it did not id not violate *existing * laws of the universe and seems to have broken current known laws of *c*, because that was the permissiveness of the original state of chaos, a release of all available energetic potential in a single mega-quantum event , emerging from a state of abstract Potential to physical expression. IOW a hierarchy of "ordering" states of expression. This hierarchy of patterns can be described in the abstract in symbolic mathematical language. IMO, it would seem possible to me that an occasional mathematical conflict can be creates and the subsequent quantum event will follow the law of *necessity and sufficiency* or *in the direction of greatest satisfaction". But, in the abstract, that still represents a fundamental set of orderly and consistent (mathematical) potential of the universe.
