00:00
hey there welcome to life noggin it’s
00:02
time for another Q and a let’s say that
00:05
you are on a date
00:07
you and your partner order some food at
00:09
a nice restaurant you decide to get the
00:11
steak but what caused you to choose that
00:13
particular item was it your free choice
00:15
or was it predetermined our intuition
00:18
tells us that we are the ones who made
00:19
the decision we like to think that we
00:21
have control over our minds what we
00:23
think and what we do but in 1983
00:26
Benjamin Labette performed an experiment
00:28
that sparked a lot of controversy in the
00:30
experiment he had a volunteer make a
00:32
decision about when to do a simple
00:34
action such as flicking the wrist they
00:36
announced out loud when they made the
00:38
decision while the activity of their
00:40
motor cortex was being recorded
00:41
shockingly the motor cortex became
00:44
active before the conscious decision was
00:46
made it appeared like one’s free will
00:48
was just an illusion
00:50
and while Labette himself even doubted
00:52
the experiments ability to answer the
00:54
question of whether or not we have free
00:55
will it got a lot of people thinking are
00:58
our actions truly free a while ago we
01:01
made a video about the unconscious mind
01:02
and in that video we discussed the
01:04
concept of priming meaning that certain
01:06
events have an effect on how we behave
01:08
for example seeing a briefcase will make
01:10
people more competitive they may think
01:13
that they’re acting freely but they
01:14
don’t realize the briefcase had an
01:16
effect so some argue that free will is
01:18
just an illusion and we are simply not
01:20
aware of the causes of our actions but
01:23
with all that said what does physics
01:24
have to say about free will while Sir
01:26
Isaac Newton would argue that everything
01:28
you do is predetermined see according to
01:30
his laws of physics the world was
01:32
deterministic everything that happened
01:34
in the past had an effect on the future
01:36
so the fact that you ordered that
01:37
simmering steak on your date was always
01:39
meant to be but this begs the question
01:41
is anyone morally responsible for their
01:44
actions should Jeffrey Dahmer be
01:45
punished for killing and eating people
01:47
if it was destined to happen you can see
01:50
where this can get a bit controversial
01:51
and creepy no hey get away from me this
01:54
was not an invitation for you guys
01:56
anyway so then there’s quantum physics
01:58
while Newton’s laws are deterministic
02:01
the behavior of subatomic particles is
02:03
inherently unpredictable so some
02:05
philosophers think that free will makes
02:06
use of this randomness a
02:08
going for us to make free undetermined
02:10
decisions but can these tiny effects
02:12
make up the macro-level concept of free
02:14
will that’s still under debate so what
02:17
do you think you clicked on this video
02:19
seemingly using your free will do you
02:21
think you truly made that decision or do
02:23
you think it was set in stone since the
02:24
Big Bang maybe you have another theory
02:26
