Natures' uncertainty priniciple/randomness goes against man's desire. 
We want certainty despite the obvious irrationality of 
  The Tegmark Level 4 possibilities are states of potentialities where 
some exist in our universe of quantum gravity and relativity.

Hypothetically there are some other universes where our laws of physics 
cannot reach yet. A utopian universe is what we want now not in the far 
future. The transhumanist thought appeals to the techno-savvy minds who 
believed in artificial intelligence.
  But are they reality challenged if they are not aware of the random 
processes of nature {{the uncertainty principle }?
