behavioral unpredictability: complexity and ... ?

Maybe behavior is "varied and unpredictable" not only "because there are so many variables" (in which case one might in principle figure it all out) but also because the nervous system itself is a source of unpredictability? And unpredictability is an important factor in all evolution, biological as well as story?
