Physics meets Psychology: determinism and free will.
The Universe as whole is an infinite / eternal continuum: T=0K.
The infinite / eternal state is terrible boring state and therefore
quantum particles have only one will to change their state and
take part in the cosmic time-travel game, using of course these
well known physical-mathematical quantum and classical laws
and formulas to great a new Material World(s).
The nature by itself is rational and consists of particles and
their relations with each other. Everything can be explained
in terms of these particles and they relations.
Nature was created from simple to complex, from micro-levels
to macro-levels. At first these very small and thin quantum particles
created simple atom, then complex atom, then cell(s) . . then a monkey,
then a man. All was going according to the Darwin’s theory of evolution.
So, where is the problem between free will and determinism?
The problem is hidden in the border between two worlds:
Quantum and Material.
Material Newtonian world obeys deterministic physical laws
(no place for free will) but Quantum world shows us indeterministic
behavior of particles (there must be freedom of the will)
Newtonian physics explains action (movement) that was be evoked
by external forces. Quantum physics says that the cause of action
(movement) is its inner /own forces/impulses of particles.
Quantum particles have and use own/inner forces-impulses for actions.
Border of determinism and free will can be seen in human beings.
Man want to act in his own subjective (sensual & logical) way and
his quantum particle want to stop and change his mistaken behavior.
Man has free will to choose his way:
a) to go by his own sense and logic . . . . or . . .
b) to go by quantum’s guide.
But usually we are ignored the quantum’s guide and as the
“Bhagavad Gita” says:
“Fools deride Me when I descend in the human form.
They do not know My transcendental nature and
My supreme dominion over all that be.”
/ Chapter 9. Text 11./
Inside each of us there is a quantum particle.
Today most scientists say that there isn’t consciousness on the
quantum level. But the quantum particles are indeterministic particles
and the least grain of information comes only from quantum particles
like photons/electrons. And until today there isn’t theory: what electron is.
For example.
Book "What is the Electron?" by Volodimir Simulik . 2005. /
‘ More than ten different models of the electron are presented here. (!)
More than twenty models are discussed briefly. (!)
Thus, the book gives a complete picture of contemporary theoretical
thinking (traditional and new) about the physics of the electron.’…
Why does simple electron have six ( 6 ) formulas:
+E=Mc^2 and -E=Mc^2 , E=h*f and e^2=ah*c,
E=-me^4/2h*^2= -13,6eV and E= ∞ ?
Nobody knows their correlation, how to bind these formulas together.
Robert Milliken, who measured a charge of electron, in his Nobel speech
( 1923) said that he knew nothing about “ last essence of electron”.
“ It is important to realize that in physics today,
we have no knowledge of what energy is.
We do not have a picture that energy comes in little
blobs of a definite amount. “ / Feynman. 1987 /
(energy “in little blobs of a definite amount” is an electron)
Therefore someone said:
“ We know electron by what it does, not by what it is.”
It is very a pity, but electron (and photon) is still an enigma today.
Philosopher John Searle wrote:
“ . . ., it looks as if we would have to postulate that inside each of us
was a self, that was capable to interfering with the causal order of nature. . . . .
. . .but it’s certainly not consisted with what we know about how the
world works from physics. And there is not the slightest evidence
to suppose what we should abandon physical theory in favor of such a view”
/ “The freedom of the will”, part (other possible solutions) , by John Searle./
In my opinion the other possible solution ( inside each of us there is quantum
particle- electron/photon - owner of self-action) seems crazy today but the
rational logic says that we need to reconsider our view on Physics.

''Science is not always as objective as we would like to believe.''

"One thing I have learned in a long life:
that all our science, measured against reality, is primitive
and childlike - and yet it is the most precious thing we have."
