If this is right,then how can we say ,we have free will ?
See Daniel Dennett's book "Elbow Room" for a good exposition of
compatibilist free will.
why is there binary state at all ?
I don't understand that question? Computers use binary representations
because it physically more efficient, although there have been computers
that used base three, and of course analog computers.
if there is free will,how can we say everything affects everything ?
That depends on what you mean by free will and whether you think the
world is deterministic. By "affects" do you mean "determines" or could
it mean "change the probability of"?
why is the 50-50 probability arises ?
why is there probability functions at all ?
Probability is a mathematical model. It can be used to model events
where we are ignorant of the causes, although we assume they exist.
That's how it was invented, by game players. But it isn't necessary to
assume there are unknown causes. The same model then describes inherent

Then above all,the real question is why is there parallel worlds at
It's convenient model of measurement in quantum mechanics to avoid the
question of why measurements need to be described by a physical process
(projection) different from all other physical processes (unitary
evolution by the Hamiltonian). Whether such worlds are "real" is
everything affects everything or not ?
In physics, things can only affect events in their future light cone and
events are only affected by events in their past light cone. There are
some theories, such as Bohm's quantum mechanics, which violate this
rule, but none that are accepted.
P.S : i am just a student and i don't have real technical knowledge in
all these fields..i am just curious..what is these universe and why
does it exists at all..
so please bear with my ignorance.
