That the classical world is as indefinite as the quantum world? The whole significance of the Schrodinger equation is that the classical world of prediction from initial conditions is possible because the probablistic world of QM is blotted out by the Schrodinger equation. If the UP is causing uncertainty at a classical level, then why is that position and momentum is not classically uncertain at the same time?

Obviously the Schrondinger equation (or the physical process that it describes) is doing something to bring predictability at a classical level. Why do you think quantum chaos gets by this process?

Warm regards, Harv
