I don't think you understood Bruno's original point, which was that indeterminism (i.e. true randomness) emerges as a first person phenomenon in a deterministic multiverse. There's no valid argument that indeterminism is required for consciousness or decision-making, but even if it were so, a rich enough deterministic world can still provide it. -- Stathis Papaioannou -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
