Models so far discussed are all deterministic, meaning that, if the present state were perfectly known, it would be possible to predict exactly all future states. Now we try to face the Babylonian lottery considering models that can describe the possible infusion of chaos (but we would rather say chance) into the cosmos, within a probabilistic framework that can take care of all circumstances of events like birth and death.
