    Just because absolute determinism might be false, it does not mean that free will exists. The universe is either governed by determinism (causality) or randomness, neither of which gives you free will. You don't need the empirical data from the "free will experiments" like those of Benjamin Libet's to disprove free will. That's just the cherry on top. You only need a rational mind and a relatively basic understanding of the laws that govern our universe.

    I don't see the issue. People seem to have some strange ideas about freewill not being a thing if everything has been set in motion by past events. This is ridiculous as the only other option for free will would be unexplained randomness in our brains, which we also couldn't control. I have free will, and it is made up of my biology and past experiences. People are just using a bad definition of free will trying to turn it into something magical that couldn't possibly exist.

    No, you're welcome And these questions aren't unsolved, they're not even difficult, the only reason idiots think they're difficult is because acknowledging the truth requires them to give up certain sacred cows. Like their idiotic sense of justice and the morality of condemning criminals, which has nothing to do with justice, but revenge. And the only effect this should have on our society, is to make is more understanding. Also, 90% of this video is irrelevant to the fact that there is no free will. Determinism is irrelevant to free will.

    Random or determined actions or a mixture of both cannot be considered free will. This so called compatibility is lacking in logic and practicality.

    This is a subject that I have been delving into quite heavily as of late. So far I tend towards what many consider reductionist. My current theory takes into consideration the "multiverse". If every possibility exists, it is only your conciousness that chooses (simply put) and would make more sense to combining the subatomic micro with the galactic macro.

    No. Punishing people, animals, or machines for their crimes does not rely on the assumption that they have free will. On the contrary, it relies on the assumption that they DON'T have free will. They are wired that way and can't help themselves from doing the crime. Therefore, they must be incapacitated from doing more crime.

    i think the notion of free will is a misnomer. Free will is another way of saying, "we make decisions and choose our choice." People kill, but its still a choice in 98% - sometimes murder is a reaction like in self-defense, but then again choosing to defend ones self is another choice, we could just possibly run, but i can't cover all the bases here. Choice is what humans do. Choice is not what animals do. Humans operate by making weighed decisions through, as you wisely said; filters: animals are reactionary.

    Bro you did the best job explaining the age old debate of the Christian community of Armamiamsm vs Calvinism. And explaining why God is in present as He is known as "I AM" being able to explain the past and being able to know the future. No one I seem so far has come close to the outer edges of explaining that and that too using science. The mind-finger movements experiment doesn't prove predictability but most assuredly proves that we don't just have a mind and a body but also a spirit of ourselves inside our fleshly bidy that controls our body as we do not merely think in our brain but the brains thoughts are a reflection of our soul. This experiment clearly demonstrates that. This is probably the best video of yours I seen so far.

    Benjamin Libet's findings, not only have not been disproved, but they have been widely expanded! From 0.5 to 2.5 seconds that he found the time between brain decision and awereness of that decision, a 2008 study pushed it to 10 seconds and a 2019 study to 11 seconds! Even some neuroscientists who still want to believe in Free Will (somehow) they themselves have confirmed Libet's findings... but they spin it differently. Also, check Robert Plomin's work on genetic explanation of variance in areas such as learning skills and mental health. Free will is constantly taking a beating, not only from neuroscience and genetics, but also from both classical and quantum physics. Great content as always!

    Free will cannot exist. Everything is based on action/reaction. Cause/effect. Every effect was absolute from their respective causes. This is similar to how you can map trajectory. Every cause results in an absolute trajectory of effect. You brushed your teeth at exactly "insert time here" because of all the other things that led up to that moment, down to the second you were born. This continues to the beginning of all time and space. There is an absolute trajectory/destiny which is taking place at all times. Not only that, every person is simply a makeup of atoms/chemicals/etc nonsense that governs the body before the mind even begins to think. When it does decide to think it is again governed by that combination of chemicals/atoms/ etc... All things that were cause/effected into that body. You CANNOT say free will exists in this universe. Everything im typing now is not even my free will. Im just another tiny part of the universe on its own trajectory, steered millions of times from previous "causes".

Penguins will guard their pebbles from stealing, and beat thieves up. The thieves in turn, will try to fool their prey, and steal in secret etc.. It's all there.. if you care to look for it.

    "The criminality associated network".. So if you lived in old Russia where it was forbidden to be religious, and you believed in a God, you was criminal.. And according to some people, that means that your criminal part of the brain was activated.. If you lived in Germany in a certain time and helped some Jews, you was criminal and according to some people it was because of a special criminal part of the brain that was activated.. lol If you was a slave during the slave time, and you runned away, you was a criminal, and that was because your criminal part of the brain was activated.. lol Since what is criminal and not is different in both time and culture, the whole idea of "criminal associated network" in the brain seems pretty silly to me. Killing is criminal, beside from when your government beg you to do when they declare war to gain control of a area.. what was illegal yesterday might be legal to day, so what happen then?..

    Life is a series of rooms . . . Whoever we get put in those rooms with determines the outcome of our lives. Sensationalist Journalism is a prime example of just how “gullible” the average person really is. Not everyone will choose to go out and get a face full of tear gas. We are all unwittingly subjected to being, “under the influence,” of other human beings. We must consciously question ourselves & summon restraint from within.

    We all have free will to choose although our will is a limited one. Otherwise we’d be God. We can’t walk off a cliff and live for instance. We’re conditioned. We experience a combination of our desires and past karma. Just like I may buy a ticket from nyc to la and once in the jet I can’t get out but I can read, watch a movie, nap, etc. Free will is always there. It’s not the government’s responsibility when people go to jail. The government simply builds the facility. It’s our choice. Just as we have free will in a virtual reality program we also exhibit it in this world, and just as a VR can be manipulated by the programmer by slight changes so can this reality. Richard L Thompson sums it in his book Maya The World As Virtual Reality: The word "chaos" suggests something uncontrollable, but this turns out to be misleading. A "chaotic" system is susceptible to external control, but a nonchaotic system cannot be so easily controlled. This can be illustrated by comparing an old-fashioned pendulum clock with an automobile on a desert salt flat. If you know roughly the setting of the clock and how fast it gains or loses time, you can predict its future behavior easily (relative to some standard clock). But imagine tying down the gas pedal of a driverless car on a salt flat and letting it go. To predict the motion of the car you need very accurate information about how small bumps in the ground are causing its wheels to swing this way and that. At the same time, a driver can direct the car according to his will by making small deflections of the steering wheel. But each time a person wishes to change the setting of the clock, he has to fully shift the clock's hands to their new position. Clocklike systems require drastic inter­vention to change their state, whereas carlike systems can be controlled by very small interventions. Thus chaos allows for external control, although it simply produces random behavior when left to itself; The clock was one of the inspiring metaphors behind the mechanis­ tic picture of the universe, but many classical physical systems are more comparable to the car on the salt flat than to the clock. To see why, it is useful to study a simple model, called the Baker Transformation. This is a highly idealized model of a baker kneading a square of dough, but it illustrates an important phenomenon that occurs in more com­ plex form in many real situations. The sidebar on pages 36 and 37 pre­sents the details of the Baker Transformation, and the next section points out their implications. Readers who wish to skip the details can proceed directly to the next section after reading the first two para­ graphs of the sidebar to find out what the Baker Transformation is. CONTROL THROUGH AMPLIFICATION What the Baker Transformation shows is that all information defining the motions of a point (x,y) in the dough square is stored in the binary digits defining that point. As time passes, this information is steadily read out from the x-coordinate of the point and then sent into oblivion in the higher binary places of the y-coordinate. The digits of (x,y) are like a script defining all the future motions of the point. In Figure 4, these scripts were defined for a collection of points so that the points would spontaneously form a "happy face" at a given time (square 7). One could similarly write scripts so that these points would form the letters spelling out Shakespeare's plays, one after another. The laws of physics of this model are defined by the simple, de­terministic actions of squashing, cutting, and stacking. But without any violation of these laws, it is possible for the model to exhibit an in­telligent message. All that is needed is for the message to be scripted into high-order binary places of the points that will spell it out. At this point we need to consider what might be called the hid­den metaphysics of numbers. In physical science and engineering, measured quantities, such as the mass of an electron, are normally written with at most 7 or 8 decimal places. Further decimal digits would not be considered significant, due to inevitable errors in measurement. However, the real number system of mathematics assumes that num­ bers have infinitely many decimal places (or binary places, if binary notation is used). The laws of physics are expressed in terms of such numbers. So does an electron really have a mass specified out to infi­nitely many decimal places-or for that matter, to billions of decimal places? Since they are unmeasurable, such vast strings of decimal digits belong to metaphysics, rather than physics. One might consider replacing a static metaphysical x of infinitely many digits with a dynamic metaphysical x in which the unobservable high-order digits are continuously being revised by some agency. In that case, the motion of the points in the Baker Transformation could be controlled by that agency. At the same time, this motion would show no measurable deviation from the physical laws of the model. We can even say that there is no deviation at all, since a deviation that is impossible to measure has no real existence in physics. It is possible to incorporate this hypothetical agency into a man­ made virtual reality that can easily be implemented on a personal com­ puter. The "virtual world" of this VR consists of dots on a square. The laws of nature in this world are simply the repeated application of the Baker Transformation, which causes the dots to move about. The human subject sees the pattern of dots on his screen, and by striking keys he can change binary digits of the points in the thousandth binary place or higher. The subject will be able to cause faces or letters to ap­ pear in the square without measurably violating the laws of the system. I should emphasize that, like all virtual realities, this one has an interface linking the conscious subject to the virtual world. On the human side, this interface consists of the screen and keyboard which enable the subject to interact with the computer. On the side of the virtual world, it consists of software for updating binary digits of the x's and y's. The interface is not in the virtual world, and it forms a bridge between the virtual world and the conscious participant.

    We are not separate from source-god, but born from source-god, and therefore; we are one with source-god. If it were otherwise, we would not exist. Nothing exists apart from source-god. There is only one source-god, and source-god manifested all of life. Source-god is woven into life in such a way that source-god cannot be separate from life. Source-god is inherent in life in the same way that wetness is inherent in water; therefore, there is no greater or lesser creation, no hierarchy within creation. That would be like saying: the arm is greater than the leg, or an apple is greater than an orange; although the ego might claim something like that. Everything that has been created has a place, a function and a value to source-god. Everything has an equal value in the eyes of source-god, who created everything to be just as it is. Even though source-god is behind creation, that doesn't mean that source-god is behind everything that happens within creation. Since certain creations, such as ourselves, have been given free will and are capable of being creators in our own right; including creating suffering for ourselves and others. This particular misunderstanding, that source-god is causing our suffering and perhaps punishing us, is one of the most dangerous misunderstanding promoted by religion; for how can we become free from suffering if we don't understand what is causing it? As long as we believe that lie, we will blame source-god or others, or our circumstances for our suffering and not see that we are the ones responsible for our suffering. Our mistaken thinking, and the negative emotions and actions that flow from our thoughts causes our suffering. Depending on what we choose to believe, and how we choose to respond to life; we create more Love in the world or the opposite. When we choose to express the opposite of Love or cause harm, it is not source-god that is at fault. Source-god gifted us with the freedom to choose and to create, and we eventually learn from our choices to be better creators; to create happiness instead of suffering, and it is suffering that teaches us this; suffering points us away from what is anti-life, anti-Love. Our own personal suffering is the so-called "punishment" we receive for making choices that are not aligned with Love. That is the only "punishment", if we will, meted out by source-god. We are designed to suffer whenever we miss the mark, which is the meaning of sin. The mark, the target or goal, is Love. We suffer whenever we fall out of alignment with Love. Suffering and joy are part of the guidance system we've been given; the homing device, which when followed, will bring us back home to Love. Suffering tells us that we are believing a lie or taking a wrong direction. While joy tells us the opposite. If we don't want to suffer, then we must stop believing or doing what causes us and others suffering; and start believing and doing what brings peace, Love and joy.

    Free will is an idea, look at the story of Charles Whitman. We are to a degree free thought but if something in are brains malfunction then we are no longer in control we can be consumed with thoughts of hurting others even though we are have "free will" it comes down to brain chemistry. Just got to the part of the toad god. ALL HAIL THE TOAD GOD SUPREME, RIBBIT! *cough, cough* ALL HAIL PATRICK "please don't hurt me for my fallacies oh mighty one" Ohh he said the story of Charles Whitman in the end.

    Free will means you choose what you want to do. Yes you have free will but not in a delusional society where punishment and ridiculous laws exist.

    I’ve been watching your videos to get my mind off of the headache and disappointment in myself because I sold my GME contracts that I bought to expire in January a few days before the short squeeze...mind you I bought these back in july when GME was $4.95 And of course the example you give is investing in GME...out of all the things you could of said of all the stocks you could of picked....crazy...mind boggling actually. The regret is all I’m consumed with....and regret isn’t anything I’ve ever felt in my life....I think it’s because I doubted myself when I was right all along...more right than I’ve ever been.

    Do not delude yourself by heeding the falsified teachings that a person has a predetermined will, because that belief is wrong. Know this: whatever a person may wish to accomplish, they must always first create the will to do so; because that is the law of nature. Thus a person determines the course of their life, known as fate.

    We have no choice but to follow free will, creating a cause and effect system which we are continuously updating in order to learn more and live longer. Our life purpose is literally to become god, because everything is god.
