If the last page were ripped out of a murder mystery, would the reader be better off guessing what happened by reading only up to the fatal incident or by reading the entire book? The answer, so obvious in the case of the murder mystery, is less so in world of quantum mechanics, where indeterminacy is fundamental rather than contrived for our reading pleasure.
