Free Will Is A Construction

February 1, 2021

We are free to be more liberated if we freely decide what our freedom will be submitted to…

Free Will, the eternal debate. We have it… sort of. In truth, we are free to set up our Free Will, to some extent. I write an essay on the “Fake Left Financed By Plutocratic Conspiracy”, Facebook comes in, and “an administrator” discreetly removes it. My free will to use my isegoria, their Free Will to extinguish it.

We are free to direct some conditions to free ourselves, or not. One could elect to read the New York Times, where even now, under a new president, Biden, 50% of the articles are Trump Derangement Syndrome certified… Or one could read me (say), where a different flavor of the universe is found. In any case what we are exposed to create neural networks and those are what ideas and emotions are made of. The point is that when they are made, they are there, just like the Colosseum, and it would take a lot of effort to put something else in place. It is the hardest work. Minds have huge inertia. Is something with inertia free? It neither comes for free, nor is its trajectory changed for free.

Emotional inertia is always there. Many intellectuals nowadays need their fix of Trump hatred, just as they need Morning Joe (insider joke: a pluto media, NBC has a morning show animated by the Harvard connected daughter of the guy who attacked Afghanistan in 1979, under Carter, and her husband, named Joe; this is very popular among pseudo-intellectuals; they love to hate be it Afghanistan, or “low lives” they despise…). This is emotional inertia: hatred is the gift which keeps on giving.

But where does the spark come from? The pure gesture? The free act? When there is a need for the spark of Free Will? Quantum Field Theory postulates the existence of a universe of virtual particles coming in and out of existence. Experiments show that this seems true; direct fluctuation experiments using gravity wave detectors confirm it. No doubt those interact with our minds, which are Quantum objects.

Much has been pondered by claiming that Classical Physics is deterministic… That is not quite the truth. Classical physics, which is driven by Partial Differential Equations, is deterministic… As long as the initial conditions are 100% known. As this is clearly impossible, it is not deterministic, and never was…

Quantum Physics is driven by a variety of equations. Schrodinger equation (many low energy particles), Dirac equation (electrons), the equations of QCD (quarks, gluons), Maxwell equations (low energy photons), etc… the Schrodinger equation is a HEAT equation with… complex time. This is indicative that there is a hidden thermodynamics of (subquantum?) particles… That thermodynamics of this Subquantum Physics, in turn, would drive minds…

Better: Quantum physics rests on Quantum Entanglement: all objects in displacement are Quantum waves, spread all over. Are our minds static or dynamic? If the latter, as they obviously are, they are spread out all over, and the object of interference from Alpha Centauri… Taking this into account, some recent experiments on nonlocality in Quantum Physics were driven by signals coming from quasars at the opposite ends of the observable universe… Free Will? Only in a Free Universe? Not really, Free Will, in the end is about controlling the “Butterfly Effect”: little expositions, similar to, or identical to what some fundamentalists in Quantum Physics call “weak measurements” are what much of our minds billow from. They have to be freely controlled if we want to augment our freedom of will.
We are free to be more liberated if we freely decide what our freedom will be submitted to…

You will see many discussions regarding free will. The question is, do you have it, or are we in some giant computer program. The problem is that classical physics is deterministic, and you will often see claims that Newtonian physics demands that the Universe works like some finely tuned machine, following precise laws of motion. And indeed, we can predict quite accurately when eclipses of the sun will occur, and where we should go to view them. The presence of eclipses in the future is determined now. Now let us extrapolate. If planets follow physical laws, and hence their behaviour can be determined, then so do snooker or pool balls, even if we cannot in practice calculate all that will happen on a given break. Let us take this further. Heat is merely random kinetic energy, but is it truly random? It seems that way, but the laws of motion…
