Ok, so you're telling me that I have the same amount of free will as this rock?

You have the same intelligence as one, go kys

The fundamental particles that you're made out of are the same as the ones in that rock, so essentially yes, i would even go further and say that the rock has more free will than you.

Lmao there's no determinism at all, so yes, you have the same (null) amount of free will as that rock.

Intelligence is based on free will. If you can't have the ability to _chose_ intelligently between options, you cannot be intelligent. Your IQ meme doesn't even exist.

Question for you, anon:
Let's say you made the choice this morning to eat porridge instead of pancakes. Let's say nothing of importance happens the rest of the day. Then when the sun sets, all of time reverses back to the point where you were making the decision in the morning on what to eat. Every particle has the exact same properties as when you made the choice. Your brain is in the exact same state, could you have chosen differently?

If you really like the idea of free will, you could do what some philosophers have done, define it as "being able to choose based on your personal preferences and desires", instead of arguing that human will can somehow manifest without being influenced by the universal law of causality

>> No.10510870

>Your brain is in the exact same state, could you have chosen differently?

Since the atoms are ruled by uncertainty: yes. I absolutely could've chosen something different by mere chance alone. Two particles in the same state at time t0 may enter two different states at t1 depending on the observer, I am the observer.

Are you saying I'm not a observer of my surroundings? If I'm not, then who/what is? I am aware of my own existence, I observe it. And therefore I must have an effect on the quantum mechanics which enable said existence, otherwise i wouldn't be aware of it.

I don't think determinism matters. Even without it you have no free will.

If randomness and random quantum processes are a thing, you have no control over them, so you don't decide anything

It's even going lower each year.
Most don't even think about interpretations because it is useless when calculating, so they stick to the "orthodox" interpretation (Cuckenhagen).

>> No.10511149

Basically all those interpretations in the poll are stochastic, not deterministic. Except for De Broglie–Bohm, and that is at zero, and rightly so.

Also, as this poster shows, large amount of physicists do not even understand these interpretations or bother to have an opinion. Because it is pseudoscience. Shut up and calculate.

Thanks for proving my point.

free will is an incoherent meme, even philosophags agree with this although they like to cope by redefining the term to the point of meaninglessness

Many worlds is deterministic until you take into account splitting of worlds and which one will the observer, then it becomes stochastic as usual. So it is not really deterministic at all.

Either way you don't decide which one happens, genius

Free will and determinism aren't referring to the same thing. You could be in a non-deterministic world and still lack the ability to pick which thought pops into your head and which you decide to do.

>> No.10511298

Every decision you've made was due to something that happened before. And that was caused by something else that happened earlier.
This goes all the way till the creation of the universe.
With enough data and computational power, you could predict every event in the universe, down to a subatomic level.
Predictability is determinism. So yes, you have as much "choice" as that rock.
Imagine it like this: The universe is an ocean. Right now, it is perfectly still. No change, blank slate. You drop a stone into it, it starts moving. Each wave, each ripple can be predicted based on that initial impact.
There is no randomness in the universe. Are there things are current technology cant observe and predict? Of course. Are these predictions *impossible*?. Not at all.
Get what I'm saying?

I'm a deterministic but i'll have to disagree with you. This is not possible because of the uncertainty principle

Everett doesn't actually solve the measurement problem, and doesn't claim to. The global wavefunction evolves deterministically, but the outcomes you observe are entirely stochastic.

Why can't it be both? Most things aren't black and white, why would this most fundamental part of everything be? The instant is completely stochastic, a series of information is deterministic and converges towards a probability.

I have no idea. Free will is like art, in that it is a conception we made up from thin air. It's a cultural trope and little more. Free will can be whatever you want it to be, like art, because it's made up.

Everything can be predicted, we just aren't intelligent enough to predict it yet.

If you have a few thousand years to examine every moment of a persons life, and examine the location of every particle for every second of their life, and you could perform tests and scans on every cell. Then using some sort of advanced algorithm you could predict what choices they were going to make.

The vast majority of people aren't actively making the choice to not commit suicide every day, they breathe, use the bathroom and seek out food and water without thinking about it. They aren't making the choice to live They aren't making any choices at all.

>> No.10512149

There is an AI already in existence that can predict when someone will die with great accuracy. We're well on our way.

>> No.10512155

precisely, AI can use algorithms to make original works of art.
And you could also scan an exsisting work of art and break it down into elements, concepts and emotions.

No matter how surreal or abstract a piece of art looks you can break it down and see exactly why it was created, and how the person came to create it in that way.

And when they do weigh the question of questions, to be or not to be, it is either because there is something wrong with their brains, or external factors have affected them so severely that the burden of going on living has become too great. I see no real choices here either.

the probability of me (a person) living in the supposed land of the free is 330 million divided by 7.5 billion

which is 4.4 percent

now to add on to that, the probability that i would have taken the time to write this post is magnificently smaller

and the probability that i would have wanted to write this post coupled with the fact that i am living in the land of the free is even smaller than that.

the probability that the land of the free is in reality free... well, that is up to the observer to decide.

if you say yes, you might be deceived, but you will believe that you indeed free and whatever actions you will have will be supposed "free" actions

but if you say no, you might "give in" to the powers that be and succumb to the darkness.

Determinism causes free will. If you can't figure out how to define how that's separate from the method by which determinism causes a rock to be a rock, then yes, you have the same amount of free will as a rock. But only be your own measuring stick.

Categorically wrong. It claims that what you observe (which "world" you're entangled with) only appears to be stochastic, because you're now limited to accessing only a reduced (mixed) state. It's still entirely deterministic. You are probably conflating various ideas of Copenhagen interpretation into many-worlds, because the schools ingrain Copenhagen so fucking hard into how we learn QM.

Keep in mind I'm not claiming that MWI is "correct" or anything. But you've got it wrong.

>> No.10513104

uncertainty principle has to do with our ability to measure the particles momentum and position, just because we can not say for certain that the particles were in one state to begin with doesn't change the fact that if you reverse time they will always be in the same state that they were.
