Are you admitting you couldn't solve the problem you were asked to solve without randomness?

Actually great skill and intellect are required to beat win this game and the only way to negate the skill edge an opponent might have over you is to employ randomness.
Oh, I'd love to gamble with you. Me and my statistics knowledge, you and your great skill and intellect.

In the "olden days" the night sky was "heaven" where supernatural beings "lived" and played around with the weather etc. They didn't think in terms of electrical energy or quasars so to them this was a "metaphysical world". I think what we do is we take concepts which were quite simple and because the concept is still talked about, we try to give it a modern meaning, rather than treating it as an anachronism
