IAN: No, because there is 0% of untruth in the
physical reality. The fact that what I believe you
refer to can be quantified as the uncertainty principle
demonstrates the fact that truth itself is not fuzzy.

If we can only measure the position or the momentum
of a subatomic particle but not both at the same time,
the "fuzziness" expresses only the degree to which our
concepts can be mapped onto physical things, but the
things always are what they are by 100%, even if
what they are is both particle and wave.

The physical reality is truth, and as such, whatever
it is is what truth is. If it's random, chaotic, now
this and then that, then that's what the truth is.
Fortunately or not the truth is pretty reliable.
