  1. I have already explained.

    I just did. Then there is the Penrose and Hameroff paper. It actually supports free will using quantum mechanics.[/QUOTE]

    I don't see where or why or in what way these model actually support...
  2. Wow! This is shocking B.S. even for the internet.

    You would save his team time and the university a lot of money by telling them what you know.
  4. I just did. Then there is the Penrose and...

    You are not considering new theoretical models. You are just claiming that they are false by not letting them have a chance.[/QUOTE]

    Which new theoretical model do you favour? Why not post a...
  5. You are not considering new theoretical models. ...

    Just because things don't appear one way to you doesn't mean that they aren't that way.[/QUOTE]

    It's not that it appears that way to me, but that this is the way the brain appears to work...
  6. If not neural activity, then what do you think is...

    A neuron is a cell, so are you saying that the ability to choose does not extend to neural activity. And the theory is that the neurons may be entangled, not just molecules.[/QUOTE]

    Define "you" and that should answer your question.[/QUOTE]

    The question was not about your constituent parts but regulative control, the ability to have chosen otherwise within the conditions you...

    Mathew Fisher explains this in the link that I keep posting https://www.news.ucsb.edu/2018/018840/are-we-quantum-computers
  10. The binding of separated neurons firing that give...

    Entire neurons may be being coupled (does not mean only two) according to https://www.news.ucsb.edu/2018/018840/are-we-quantum-computers . That's a pretty high level where consciousness is...
  11. Entire neurons may be being coupled (does not...

    If I am anything, I am at least my neurons and its electrochemical activity. That is not my environment.[/QUOTE]

    Why not? I mean, why not, apart from you just stating it. Maybe you're the...
  12. If I am anything, I am at least my neurons and...

    If I am anything, I am at least my neurons and its electrochemical activity. That is not my environment.
  13. Define "you" and that should answer your question.

    I am not sure what you are getting at. If my consciousness is a bunch of neurons and the firing of these neurons are not fully determined by the environmental causes, then how is this not a human...
  14. Is it possible that I have 3 coins in my pocket? ...

    Could you say that again but without not making any sense?[/QUOTE]

    Is it possible that I have 3 coins in my pocket? I actually have 2, so it was not true even though it was rationally possible. ...
  15. If there is nobody to explain why the ship can't...

    That doesn't change anything. You need to start with the necessary and sufficient conditions for free will TOGETHER, and then show how something that satisfies BOTH might be possible.

    Again, an...
  16. And what I have been saying for years and years...

    What you mention here is a necessary condition for free will. What we have been telling you (for years!) is that it is not a sufficient condition for free will. You can have random events in the...
  17. I am not sure what you are getting at. If my...

    It talks about entire neurons being entangled with other neurons.[/QUOTE]

    There is an awful lot of atoms that make up a single neuron yet alone neurons themselves being entangled....even granting...
  18. It talks about entire neurons being entangled...

    Read the "Entangled Neurons" part of https://www.news.ucsb.edu/2018/018840/are-we-quantum-computers[/QUOTE]

    Several problems with that assumption - even if it effects changes to the brain, the...
  19. One should expect a choice to be made with free...

    How exactly do you relate 'indeterminable choices' to 'free will?' That needs to be explained. [/QUOTE]

    One should expect a choice to be made with free will would not be determined. Given the...
  20. You thought you knew things in this area when you...

    You thought you knew things in this area when you didn't. Do you have anything to back your claim up, or do you want me to just trust you.
  21. I am not arguing for the existence of free will. ...

    You are wasting your time. Ryan will always argue for the existence of free will. He couldn't do otherwise.[/QUOTE]

    True, but he (or someone else) may have been working on a new argument or angle...
  22. Do remember the Posner molecules from Fisher's...

    That's QM. Nobody knows why the universe has QM rather than no QM.[/QUOTE]

    How does QM help you in relation to the decision making process?[/QUOTE]

    That's QM. Nobody knows why the universe has QM rather than no QM.
  24. I don't understand what you are saying here.

    I don't understand what you are saying here.
  25. I don't know how free will is created although...

    Both. Two parts. A description of how the "ocean/universe creates free will" with a given definition of free will.[/QUOTE]
