Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’ve been using #diaspora off and on since its creation, and since I’ve dumped #facebook and #twitter, I’m back… again.

I’m into #videogames, #punk, #sci-fi, #horror, and #philosophy among other things.

Physics, philosophy, and free will.

Is everything predetermined? Why physicists are reviving a taboo idea


Superdeterminism makes sense of the quantum world by suggesting it is not as random as it seems, but critics say it undermines the whole premise of science. Does the idea deserve its terrible reputation?

[Here's an uncomfortable series of questions:

Let's say, for the sake of argument, that people do have "free will".

What does that even mean?

What is the will free of?

If these questions seem too abstract, let us consider some more concrete smaller questions.

(1) Are we free to choose what we believe?

If you answered "yes" then I challenge you to believe -- I mean really believe not merely accept for the sake of argument -- that 2 + 2 = elephant.

You can't do it. But if you had freedom to choose your beliefs, then you could.

(2) Are we free to choose how we act?

This, I think, comes closer to what most thinking people believe "free will" entails.

But even this does not survive scrutiny.

(2.1) What determines how you act?

Well, presumably, it is some combination of what you believe, what your goals are, and what you think the current circumstances are. Note that your beliefs about current circumstances are a special case of "what you believe", so these can be collapsed into a single thing.

OK, so then your actions are a function of (a) what you believe, and (b) what your goals are.

Having established that your beliefs are not under your control (or do you really believe that "2 + 2 = elephant" yet?), this leaves your goals as the only refuge of "free will".

(2.2) What determines your goals?

(2.2.1) Is it "god"? If so, then you did not choose them, and "free will" loses.

(2.2.2) Is it nature? If so, then you did not choose them, and "free will" loses.

(2.2.3) Is it your soul? If so, then where did your soul get those goals? Return to step 2.2.1.

(2.2.4) Is it "random"? If this is your preferred answer, then is "freedom" really the same thing as "randomness"? Is the die free to "choose" what side turns up when you roll it? If so, is this the way you wish to conceptualize your own "soul"?

None of this required physics. All it takes is logic; basic thinking things through.

"Free will" is worse than impossible. It is incoherent.

Physicists are jacking themselves off if they think they can answer, or even speak intelligently to, this question. This is a question for logic first; science only comes into play once the logic is worked out.]

Bonjour tout le monde, je ne suis pas #nouveauici, mais immigrant de @framasphère (qui va fermer) après une tentative d'installation sur pod.g3l.org (conseilé par Frama) qui s'est avéré extrêmement peu réactif...
Mes centres d'intérêt sont #books, #circus, #clown, #ethics, #europe, #jazz, #linux, #nature, #philosophy, #photo et #poésie.

Gébé - Un pas de côté
Construire une gloriette. Dans un angle du jardin, avec du bois trouvé, des clous redressés. Prendre son temps. La dernière planche clouée, la première rose fleurie, m’asseoir dans ma gloriette pour regarder le jour finir. Une des "différentes choses à faire avant de mourir". Gébé.

“I think there is considerable value in trying to view one’s life as an on-going project of ethical progress, centred on bringing together our growing understanding of the virtues and of how to treat other people better; and that this view can help us to adopt a more thoughtful and constructive view of political engagement than is often held.” Christopher Gill, Emeritus Professor of Ancient Thought at the University of Exeter

There's a reason why the windshield is so big and the rearview mirror is so small. :)

welcome


dr. of divinity is absolut hammer! never heared that ;D

you can definetly tag your post one more time #divinity #monk #agent #philosophy and all the rest. this is much interesting stuff!
in connection with one of the astrologic posts past days I had some thoughts about that kundalini and kuntalini thing. I thought the kundalini developed from the tao philosophy and I thought that is the oldest somehow developed from the oldbabylon system now the post I read had the maya linked to kuntalini by some description of a red snake...
I'd like to know some timelines and theories about that topic, maybe in one of your future postings?

also I want to ask: you can recommend some thai-chi for beginners? (I'm coming to that age... first year I didn't gain my flexibility of body after winter, I suffer - but I'm fine, don't worry, just need some chi ;))

so #love and #peace dae!

The Digital Native: Neuer Artikel

Darf man falsche Fakten als Meinung vertreten und wie reagiert man darauf? Beispiele an Hand von offensichtlicher Lügen als Meinugen, der Leugnung mathematisch beweisbarer Fakten, angeblicher Corona Zweitinfektionen und irrationalen Überzeugungen, die dem einhelligen Konsens der Experten zum Risiko-Nutzenverhältnisses der Corona-Impfung widersprechen

Cognition all the way down


Questions like these where the reason I studied mathematics and informatics, decades ago. I didn't have any opportunities to do more than to just read a tiny fraction of the literature in my free time, but I enjoy the fact that there is indeed some synergy between theoretical and practical scienes at work, here. Recommended reading.
