What is a blind force?

How can a force be blind? What is the opposite of a blind force? It can only be a directed force. So is a blind force without direction? No- a particular blind force isn’t directionless.

Are the forces that modern physics concerns itself with blind? Not at all. The equations of Physics work just as well to describe the arc of a baseball or the friction between the car and its wheels, which are both directed by the pitcher and the driver. Calling the force “blind” would be a restriction of the truths of physics. If anything, the forces of classical physics are too directed. They were determined too much to an outcome. Nothing in nature has the sort of absolute determination that classical physics imagined things to have. Things more have only a probable determination. But a probable determination is neither a contradiction, nor a sheer indifference to whatever result may come. 

But if “blind” forces are superfluous to physics, where are they of some value? Does “blind” mean only that some sentient or knowing being is not directing them? Again, it is clear that we are not directing all the forces in nature- and any force we direct seems to involve some kind of art as opposed to nature- but is that to say that the direction of nature is unrelated to knowledge? The knowledge would only need to generate natures and not artifacts. This would require only that the knower that moved the being did not depend upon nature in order to know. Knowers anterior to nature need not produce artifacts by their mind, but can bring forth natures.
