I have started listening to Beginning of Infinity and joined the
list for the book. Right now there is a discussion there
Free will in MWI
I am at the beginning of the book and I do not know for sure, but from
answers to this discussion it seems that according to David Deutsch one
find free will in MWI.
One can find or not find free will anywhere depending on how one
defines it. That is the entire issue with free will.
My definition: free will is when you're not sure you're going to do
something until you've done it.
So if carefully weigh my options and decide on one it's not free will? I'd
will is making any choice that is not coerced by another agent.
It's compatible with what Stathis said... unti you've made the actual choise, you didn't
do it and didn't know what it will be... "the do something of Stathis can be you're not
sure what you'll choose until you've chosen it."
Are you saying that one *never* knows what they are going to do until they do it...which
then by Stathis defintion means that every action is free will and coercion is impossible?
