00:00
Newtonian determinism says that the
00:02
universe is a clock a gigantic clock
00:04
that’s wound up at the beginning of time
00:06
and it’s been ticking ever since
00:08
according to Newton’s laws of motion so
00:10
what you’re going to eat ten years from
00:13
now on January 1st has already been
00:15
fixed it’s already known using newton’s
00:18
laws of motion
00:19
Einstein believed in that Einstein was a
00:22
determinist does that mean that a
00:24
murderer
00:24
this horrible mass murderer isn’t really
00:27
guilty of his works because it was
00:29
already preordained billions of years
00:32
ago nine sign said well yeah in some
00:34
sense that’s true
00:35
even mass murderers were predetermined
00:38
but he said they should still be placed
00:41
in jail Heisenberg then comes along and
00:44
proposes the Heisenberg uncertainty
00:45
principle and says nonsense there’s
00:48
uncertainty you don’t know where the
00:50
electron is it could be here here or
00:53
many places simultaneously
00:55
this of course I’m Stein hated because
00:57
he said God doesn’t play dice with the
00:59
universe
00:59
well hey get used to it
01:03
Einstein was wrong God does play dice
01:06
every time we look at an electron it
01:08
moves there’s uncertainty with regards
01:10
to the position of the electron so what
01:12
does that mean for free will it means in
01:14
some sense we do have some kind of free
01:17
will no one can determine your future
01:20
events given your past history there’s
01:23
always the wild card
01:24
there’s always the possibility of
01:26
uncertainty in whatever we do so when I
01:29
look at myself in a mirror I say to
01:32
myself what I’m looking at is not really
01:34
me it looks like me but it’s not really
01:37
me at all it’s not me today now it’s be
01:41
a billionth of a second ago because it
01:43
takes a billionth of a second for light
01:44
to go from me to the mirror and by
