Hawking and Mlodinow start with the statement that free will is
If they said that, and I don't recall that they did, they were being
much too kind in equating the "free will" noise to something as
concrete as illusion.
I have a general question first. Let us assume the M-theory or any other
Theory-of-Everything you like. In the last chapter of Grand Design,
there is a comparison of such a theory with the Game of Life: simple
rules deterministically produce complex patterns.
Now is my questions. We observe different patterns like
I have done it according to my will
Free will is illusion
the "free will" noise
The formation of these patterns follows rules of the
Theory-of-Everything. Small particles moves this and that way and
occasionally we have a pattern above.
What I cannot comprehend though is why some people, which after all are
also just occasional conglomerates of small particles obeying the
Theory-of-Everything, react very differently when they see some pattern
Do you know what part of the Theory-of-Everything responsible for such
behavior of a conglomerates of particles in this case?
