Necessity and chance in the evolution of the Universe

  • language: Polish


The paper deals with the role of chance in the evolution of the Universe. Chance (randomness) does not undermine the structure of the Universe encoded in the laws of nature, but constitutes an indispensable element of that structure, an element in-built, in a non-linear way, in the dynamic architecture of the whole. Moreover, random events do not contradict mathematical orderliness of the Universe, because they themselves are mathematical in character. The paper suggests also that mathematical structure of the Universe echoes the Mind of God which, together with the previous statements, implies that random events are important part of that Mind.
