In any case, quantum game theory offers a new perspective on both games and physics, with implications awaiting further exploration. At the very least, quantum physics and games share one obvious similarity—probability distributions, as with the mixed strategies of games and the mixed realities of quantum mechanics. Life and physics, it seems, are all mixed up. Sorting it all out will require a closer look at the power of probability.
