No. I spent several YEARS on this and the nature of determinism
Lets reset the universe back to +1 second . The ball if dropped at all 'may bounce anywhichway'.
This is what quantum indetermism has hiding in it's skirts.
In the quantum world events occur without apparent cause. And while this seems to be without effect because said events are so small and fast. They cascade upwards.
Like evolution they take a long time to cycle into gross reality. In extreme you may not exist to drop the ball. , but leveling statistically you will but the ball could go left not right.
Like just about every thing else, it's grey time, a bit of this a bit of that. But the curry is still hot. Thank your god.
