Einstein's quote is as simple as it is profound. Dice are our social symbol of true randomness.

The only reason why it looks so unpredictable is our inability to take into account all the variables of the action of throwing the dice. If we could accurately analyze the initial conditions like velocity or orientation and the impact surface, we could estimate with perfect accuracy the state in which it would stop. This principle applies to everything around us.

If you let me extrapolate to mathematical equations -> by the time you get to know all the variables, the equation is almost solved.

You have probably came across situations where you said you should "flip a coin" or "roll the dice" in order to move forward.

This is a method of giving up conscious control for something "unpredictable."

Imagine that you had your eyes so sharp that you could guess where and how the dice or coin would fall. It would be the equivalent of releasing a ball on the floor, an action where you can easily estimate de result. 

Awareness that nothing is random makes us responsible for our actions and helps in avoiding the unhealthy habit of blaming external factors.
