The value of a novel is not that it is real or will ever happen but rather it represents reality in an architectural model of how it could be or should be. Similarly, when theoretical physicists dream of a utopian golden age of scientific discovery where humans have evolved to the point of mastering hyperspace and bending the universe to their will, the value of it is not that logical calculations indicate humans are too insignificant for this to be our destiny, but rather the value is in the theory itself of creating a vastly unprecedented and advanced society, the architectural model of how humanity could evolve and what humanity should achieve. Achieving this in the imagination, the world of the mind would be the focus that could manifest itself into a better reality. The value is in the journey of humans becoming the lords of creation rather than the destination.

What are the unfathomable mysteries of the mind, of the willpower of man? It is our sacred duty to understand the cosmos, our divine creator. How can life merge with eternity, the timeless sea of nirvana? What is intelligence? How did light shine into the soul, the divine spark of life, the eternal flame? How can we see with the 3rd eye, or our extrasensory perception for that matter? What is the source of the divine intellect? Fire and water invoke the magic of life and death. The waters of nirvana spark the fires of life. Challenge trains the champion. Beauty is the ornament of virtue. What a strange illusion it is to suppose that beauty is goodness. He who blinded by ambition raises himself to a position where he cannot mount higher, must thereafter fall with the greatest loss. There surely a piece of divinity in us, something that was before the elements, and owes no homage unto the sun. 2 souls shining brightly of their own accord converge in a moment of destiny. In that instant, time and space seem frozen and the universe is set ablaze. The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it. Remember that happiness is a way of travel, not a destination. Suffer the seasons patiently to reap the fruits of harvest. Men’s gestures are as varied as the thoughts running through their minds. White holes are the portals of creation. To solve these questions and to answer the implications of these statements would be to take many steps upwards in our ascension towards the divine above and beyond this lowly plane. On our journey towards the divine, we will encounter many archetypes along the way, teaching us lessons in knowledge and virtue to light our way, liberating from the terrestrial to the celestial.

Here is a type of mathematical way of looking at the existence as represented by the Tree of Life: from nothing comes limitless (outer space). Filling this limitlessness is limitless light (big bang, or perhaps the space-time continuum). But this is all abstract. This is just energy. Now we need to develop solidity out of energy. We start with the idea of position, what in plane geometry is called the point (1st sephira). By reflecting itself, the 1st point can create a 2nd point (second sephira). By joining the 2 points together we form a line. But there is nothing by which to judge length. So again, by reflection, we create a 3rd point (3rd sephira) which enables us to say that point A is closer to point B than B is to point C. Thus we have formed a triangle or plane. But this has all been what is called Euclidian: it exists on an imaginary 2-dimensional surface with no thickness. To create a physical universe, we need a substance, we need 3 dimensions. We need knowledge (Dah-at, the theoretical sephira said to exist between the upper 3 and lower 7 sephiroht) in order to cross the void from 2 dimensions to 3. With the knowledge we can create a 4th point (4th sephira) which, with the previous 3 points gives us volume, and thus a 3rd dimensions. But these 3-dimensional points are static, unmoving. We need another point to show motion (5th sephira) and still another to indicate time (6th sephira), for in the physical world time and space intermingle and cannot exist without one another. So now we have something which has 3 dimensions and can move within the 3 dimensions. We still have nothing which can appreciate that existence. We add 3 more points (7th, 8th, and 9th sephiroht) which show:
1. The essence of life, called being.
2. The ability to think, called consciousness.
3. The ability to experience sensation of something outside of one’s self, called bliss.
Therefore, the 1st idea of reality as can be appreciated by a mind is built up from the idea of a point through the idea of bliss, and summed up as reality in point 10, the 10th sephira. In string theory, the infinite knowledge of God is unified in the 11th dimension. God’s infinite knowledge transforms into infinite imagination, the source of it all, magic, the will of creation, the mind of God. In the highest dimension, the 12th still yet undiscovered by science is the willpower of God. Willpower is the ultimate virtue, as it is the ultimate form of control, the union of knowledge and imagination. The willpower of God is the cause from which all effects follow, his will being free.

The following pieces of knowledge should help guide us on our path towards power and freedom. The greatest enemy will infiltrate our own fortress before we even commence the crusade, though all too often this is the last place we look. Your arrogance blinds you. The sands of truth fill the hourglass of life, which spring from the oceans of nirvana, the infinite source. What is the creative force of nature? An open mind is a free will. Our universe could be a white hole, sprung from a parent universe. We live in a world in which 99% of all beautiful things are destroyed in the bud. Everything is really something else: time is really space, gravity is really geometrical curvature, and energy is really mass. God must exist not just in the actual but in every possible world. Philosophy illuminates reality. What is the nature of time, being, death, God, and the world of transcendent forms, or ideas? Say no to the establishment. How do UFOs operate? What are underground civilizations like? What are the different alien species like? Wonder forges ruin. Water is the outpouring of creation. Fire is the energy of life. From the waters of nirvana spring the bubbles of genesis, the fires of life. How can the fires of life merge with the waters of nirvana, the eternal outpouring of creation? How is the universe related to the multiverse? Science will glorify the creation and perhaps one day will even program the creation. What is the blueprint behind the architecture of the creation that we could design and reprogram?

If we are to be wiped out by such a storm of epic proportions, we should record all the knowledge we can right now for the future generations to come, henceforth and forever. Among the knowledge I have gathered includes the following. Change, or the evolution of systems, occurs exponentially, like spiraling down a rapidly accelerating vortex. How can we change the laws of physics? The highest light casts no shadow, illuminating all God’s creation. The liberating power of reason is the ultimate virtue, the means by which we obtain the strength to free ourselves and focus our willpower upon creation. How can we unify the human consciousness with all life? The human mind is lonely because it does not comprehend the whole. Nothing is absolute. Everything is relative. Even the wise cannot see all ends. Deception is the way of fear. Knowledge is the way of love. Imagination is the expression of knowledge, the will of creation. From the well of knowledge springs infinite forms, the bubbles of creation. Deception is the lowest form, the illusion of knowledge. The arrogant are most easily deceived, blinded by their opinions to the truth of love, shadowed by fear from the light. The journey is the justice of nature, strength being the ultimate virtue. The strongest become nature’s highest forms of creation. The fallen angel’s wings were clipped. They have no freedom, and cannot fly. The story is the journey. How can technology meet magic? The greatest delusion of flesh and blood is that it can become God in one life, seeking a destination that will not arrive before the journey.

Among the following are some of the features God wrote into the blueprint of creation. Words, sounds, and images are some of the many dimensions of consciousness, each springing into imagination from the sensory world, each a vibration in the grand cosmic symphony. All people play important roles. The beast, the great leviathan, will rise up out of the sea and spawn a great deluge. How can we keep the flame of life alive? Destruction spawns creation. Earth will become like Mars. Knowledge and love lead to creation, the waters of life. Deception and fear lead to destruction, the fires of death. All things pass through fire and water, evolving from the lowest dungeons of Hell to the highest peaks of Heaven. The exterior world only changes when changes occur on the inside. You must empty your cup to taste the tea. The way of strength is the way of freedom. The beast preys upon passions, the strings of the puppet. How do you fight when defeat is inevitable? The free will is affectless. Creation is part of God. How are hunger, pain, and betrayal related to evil? We have many more lives to live. The 3 poisons are attachment, ignorance, and hatred. These are the poisons that control all of us. They produce fighting with other human beings, killing others and feeling hatred towards them. Among the potions of virtue are strength, humility, freedom, love, knowledge, life, understanding, peace, and happiness. How are strength, power, and knowledge related to the dark side? The heart of the Force is power over creation and destruction, ultimate control. You are your own master, the way of inner strength. True power comes from within, not the service of others. The Gray Jedi philosophy of controlling his emotions – neither blocking them nor allowing them to control him – allows him to draw on the Force without fearing corruption from the dark side. Among these great powers, what sort of nation could have possessed such might and wisdom?

God, free will, controls wisdom. What is the meaning of time? Is it to forge the evolution of all forms, high and low, the duality of creation? Part of the meaning of life may be to transcend space and time. Space is the matter and energy of the cosmos. Time is the evolution of all forms, high and low, the duality of creation and destruction. The highest dimension merges space and time into a unified whole, the infinite, timeless, formless ocean of nirvana, the luminous waters of creation. This is the Perfect One, the infinite Omniversal existence, the Cosmic God. Other parts of the meaning of life may be free will, evolution, and duality. The free will is God, the maker of the laws of nature. God, the free will, is the cause of all actions, or in other words, the Force. The Force is the magical free will of God to control the laws of his game. The only free will is the infinite Omniversal existence, the Cosmic God. God, the free will, is the ultimate cause of all effects. The effects are manifested in evolution, the means by which the perfect image of God is formed over time through multiple reincarnations. Time is cyclic or evolutionary in nature, the transformation of forms. One could view God, the ultimate free will as the Old Man, the ultimate triumph of evolution, the divine being from which all forms, high and low are conceived into creation, into existence. God, the Old Man transcends time and space, the highest dimension where all the pieces of nature merge together into a single and significant whole, a world of marble, and the perfect one. God manifests himself through evolution, which has a dual nature, with high and low forms. The duality of nature includes creation and destruction, order and chaos, life and death, good and evil, and light and dark. The only constant factor is change, or the evolution of all forms of the Tao, yin and yang. Black holes are like yin, dark and destructive, and white holes are like yang, light and creative. Time stops inside the infinite gravity of white and black holes, since evolution ends where the ultimate light and dark are achieved. This is why light is timeless. The forces of duality, yin and yang together forge the harmony of the cosmos. God, the free will, focuses the flow of the cosmos, the timeless sea of nirvana, or the luminous waters of genesis, the divine intellect of creation, the infinitely formless perfect one. God, the free will, the cause effects evolution creating duality. Nature evolves in cosmic oneness, harmony, and inner peace with God. Other possible parts of the meaning of life are black holes and white holes. Black and white holes are the Tao, yin and yang. Black holes are the destroyers. White holes are the creators. The only constant factor is time, or change, the evolution of forms. When one achieves ultimate light and darkness, time, evolution ends inside white and black holes inside an Einstein-Rosen bridge. An Einstein-Rosen bridge, the wormhole, connects yin and yang. Wormholes open to alien universes, merging all worlds into oneness. Black holes and white holes, parts of the meaning of life, are the duality of nature, the ultimate darkness and ultimate light.

The value of a novel is not that it is real or will ever happen but rather it represents reality in an architectural model of how it could be or should be. Similarly, when theoretical physicists dream of a utopian golden age of scientific discovery where humans have evolved to the point of mastering hyperspace and bending the universe to their will, the value of it is not that logical calculations indicate humans are too insignificant for this to be our destiny, but rather the value is in the theory itself of creating a vastly unprecedented and advanced society, the architectural model of how humanity could evolve and what humanity should achieve. Achieving this in the imagination, the world of the mind would be the focus that could manifest itself into a better reality. The value is in the journey of humans becoming the lords of creation rather than the destination.

What are the many different races, and where are they hidden, or when did they exist? What are the extra and inter-terrestrial beings and how can we access their time gates at higher subatomic frequencies, or even make the jump into the 5th dimension where they may be? How will the great purification open access to the underground cities? Surely such a civilization would far exceed the wisdom of our own. If a catastrophe of a great enough magnitude were to be unleashed, these unexplored corners of the world could be laid bare and open to our gaze in light.

This makes a lot of sense. Maybe we can't choose our contexts quite so much as we can choose what we do within those contexts, at least at our current level.

Okay, so I guess you think that our own mental actions move us, even if those operations were determined by a prior cause.

Indeed, it is too complex to map out, but that doesn't mean it's all destined beforehand to go absolutely one way with 100% conclusiveness.

The laws of physics are already determined. All that is needed now is a set of previous conditions that will influence the next state. We cannot know all the many parts of the previous condition, which is why it feels like we are free, when in actual fact the previous conditions determine the next event in a very specific way which is inevitable.
Keep in mind that knowing the fundamental laws of the universe doesn't mean we can apply them for a case study of every object in space, but it could give us very accurate clues as to the overall structure of the entire cosmos and where it's destined on a broad level to evolve.

An individuals personality, exact placement of particles in the brain, and millions of environmental factors all play a part. It feels like choice, but it's really the sheer amount of factors that go into the initial (previous) state that add together to create the exact outcome. If you are outside somewhere with a cricket ball, for instance, and you wonder whether to throw it across the field or not, it isn't really your choice. If you do throw it, that's because many conditions triggered that response, and if you don't, it's because of the same reason. Even the thought that predicated the "choice" was created through physical/electrochemical interactions, subject to other external physical systems.
I think you're right about purely physical systems being entirely determined, but that doesn't mean there aren't "meta"-physical systems out there that may act under different laws that are perhaps even subject to alteration. Perhaps metaphysics may play a part in what physical forms we assume upon our incarnations (if you believe in that stuff).

There's just so many factors that are incorporated into the initial state. Think of science experiments. They are overly simplified and isolated in comparison to an entire present state, but it's the same principle. If the setup is exactly the same each time, the end result will also be the same. (Not taking into account outside influences such as air humidity etc.)
This is because we can count on the same precedents applying in every case; that's why we can formulate laws. Of course, I've always seen laws as something to be broken (and then reconstructed into new forms). That's philosophy however, and not physics as we currently know it.

I should also mention that just because free will is an illusion, it doesn't mean that the universe is completely determined. Even if God plays dice, we are still not in control of them. Or perhaps it is determined, and the whole universe was set out to go precisely in a single direction from the initial state of the BB, but QM makes this unlikely.
It's good to see you considering alternative possibilities here; it seems like you think it's possible that random quantum events can allow for a bit of contingency, but that it still operates independently of our wills - and since our wills can't (under your view) control them, then we might as well just say that we don't have free will, as we can't determine events, let alone self-determine our own actions.

This quote is in regards to quantum mechanics, not free will. Even in the seemingly free-will-accommodating paradigm of QM, we are still subject to the laws of it, which are so minuscule in its effects relative to our scale that it is almost irrelevant on most occasions. Hawking actually believes that free will is nonexistent. To quote from The Grand Design:
Yes, I remember reading the Grand Design 3 years ago. Both of those fellas seem to have similar views and ways of thinking to yourself.

However that small difference of one atom would most likely had made something different because the atoms interaction with other atoms would had happened differently. Basically the whole thing is just one big chain reaction that spreads wider and wider, and even subtle differences to some of those reactions at one point might get amplified over time and one difference of an atom might cause whether the star had formed where all the gold in our known universum is from was ever formed or not and without gold there might not even be earth as we know it(since there is quite a lot of gold in our planets core which most likely has at least some small effect on earths magnetic fields and our whole civilization would had gone differently is that gold wasnt there).
As I've said before, your logic often overwhelms my mind. I think though that you're depicting the "Butterfly Effect" (small changes lead to big consequences) in detail.

So if something would had gone even slightly differently during the big bang, at least something in our current world would be different. Even if there are some form or multiverse thing going on, that wouldnt rule out the fact that everything which now exists, exists and is the way it is because things were as they were during the big bang or some multibang or what ever. Even if there is some big bearded guy over the clouds who knows magix, the reasons for it being are caused by similar chain reaction which i explained.
Your big bearded guy, or "God" you seem to think is also subject to laws above his own powers, that of course (in your view) predetermine what God determines to do with our universe, which in turn predetermines what we want to determine with our own willpower.

TLDR version: yes all your thoughts are physical reactions to begin with and the physical reactions which caused your thoughts were dictated by the big bang.
But we don't know if the brain is the sole source of our life force; I know that we can stimulate the brain to make us do things, but that doesn't exclude the possibility of say a spirit in negative matter or whatever giving our brains (receivers) commands. Just like technology can be a controller for the brain, so to could our "higher selves" be guiding our brains.

This view sounds more promising; you're allowing for the idea of "breaking chains" (a possibility the above posters were more closed off from).

I used to like that concept, that the universe was open to future possibility but closed once past - that was my zipper of reality theory.
I myself still subscribe to this theory (even if you don't anymore), but I'm not sure a zipper is the best metaphor; maybe it's more of a "multi-faceted crystallization".

Yes, it would seem more rational to act as if we do have free will, regardless of whether or not (or at what level) we actually have it.

If you want to talk about the free will of physics... Then no.
Physical mechanisms by themselves are in bondage, but perhaps metaphysical forces could act on the physical.

But as always there are obvious cause and effects. Become a magical vat of pudding and the only outcome is to be consumed by gluttonous forces.
Your reference to "pudding" (which can be shaped) may actually capture much more than you think it does. It's like there's a formless material before ourselves, some kind of wishing well or pool that can transform into any entity imaginable (and substances like this aren't exclusively solid; they can take other states and assume more "floaty" forms).

Okay, well I guess I can springboard this to the idea of whether or not the past is determined. Maybe reality has various "save files", kind of like how in video games they can be repeatedly accessed to get different results upon directing the game with alternative commands. That's just a random idea; I'm not saying it has any basis in reality - but then again, we really don't know!

This simple statement is fairly elegant - willpower is all about tenaciously handling ideas that we envision and seizing the moment to mobilize new actions made immanent, transforming old worlds and making new ones spring into being. Of course, to move mountains, we have to believe that it can be done, even if it takes eons for its accomplishment.

Freedom used with little effort and full honesty is better that little effort and no honesty - at least under the former, there is promise for improvement and a respect for truth.

That said, we know we don't know enough to know whether or not we have free will.
I am in complete agreement with you here. We're still way too ignorant to have definitive conclusions that can actually describe our cosmos with full clarity of vision.

That said, would you do anything differently either way?
Well, if we did actually discover the existence of free will at any level, surely we could harness some tricks in its arsenal, whereas if we went on ignorant about it and/or free will were nonexistent, then our horizons will remain clouded.

I understand that in terms of physiology we differ biologically from other animals only in the details.
I also understand that recent research has shown that animals possess consciousness (although this is obvious to any human who is owned by a dog), and that our own self awareness can be seen as an extension of this naturally occurring phenomenon. Again, we differ from animals in degree.
However, I find the ridged adherence to biological determinism to have missed the most salient point: that human consciousness is not only different in degree, but also in kind. The works of Einstein, Newton, Tolstoy, Michelangelo, Nietzsche, Curie, Schumann, Gandhi, Darwin, Beethoven, Verdi, Yousafzai, etc, etc, are not the product of biological processes directly, but of are merely underpinned by them. There is no biological necessity for the theory of relativity, or a symphony, or great works of kindness, or most other things that are uniquely human.
As a person who can feel and think and is conscious, I also find biological determinism to be anti-social. It may feel comforting to sum up all human activity in this way, it may seem as if the unsettling vagaries of life and the world are somehow obviated by this kind of ‘willful’ (sic) reduction of possibilities to mere processes, but in the end, it produces nothing that extends humanity or enriches it, or increases understanding or civility. It is rather a call to Machiavellian self-interest, to dog-eat-dog politics and violence (which of course, we see as natural). I prefer to think more of my species and the individuals in it as more than animals with self interest maximizers at the top of our spines.

The value of a novel is not that it is real or will ever happen but rather it represents reality in an architectural model of how it could be or should be. Similarly, when theoretical physicists dream of a utopian golden age of scientific discovery where humans have evolved to the point of mastering hyperspace and bending the universe to their will, the value of it is not that logical calculations indicate humans are too insignificant for this to be our destiny, but rather the value is in the theory itself of creating a vastly unprecedented and advanced society, the architectural model of how humanity could evolve and what humanity should achieve. Achieving this in the imagination, the world of the mind would be the focus that could manifest itself into a better reality. The value is in the journey of humans becoming the lords of creation rather than the destination.
