Quantum uncertainty has a tremendous explanatory power. Coherent superposition, quantum equations of motion, entanglement, nonlocal correlations, dynamical nonlocality, contextuality, discord, counterfactual protocols, weak measurements, quantization itself, and even preservation of causality can be traced back to quantum uncertainty. We revisit and extend our previous works, as well as some other works of the community, in order to account for the above claims. Special emphasis is given to the connection between uncertainty and nonlocality, two notions which evolved quite independently and may seem distinct but, in fact, are tightly related. Indeterminism, or more precisely, locally consistent indeterminism, should be understood as the enabler of most quantum phenomena (and possibly all of them).
