Thank you Irving for your insightful post. What I call sometime generically “fuzziness” has entered physics but in some sense also mathematics itself with Gödel and even classical physics with chaotic behaviors. Also maybe a good philosophy helps in the conceptualization and the storytelling. On these matters I often return to Karl Popper in his “The Open Universe – An Argument for Indeterminism” and “Quantum Theory and the Schism in Physics” where he even confronted, with a particular interpretation of probabilities, the quantum physics giants of the time. Also, Ilya Prigogine in his “From Being to Becoming – Time and Complexity in the Physical Sciences”. Time to have a philosophy of Big Data?
