Free will and quantum clones: how your choices today affect the universe at its origin
Do we have autonomy, or are our choices preordained? Computer scientist Scott Aaronson has proposed a variation on the Turing Test that he calls the Envelope Argument or Prediction Game to address the question of free will, Scientific American blogger George Musser reports.

Free Will
The concept of free will has undergone some hard times lately.

In what sense or senses may I be said to act freely? Does determinism rule out freedom of choice?
Most people, if asked, would consider themselves to be self directing, responsible agents. Society as a whole takes this for granted, people are held responsible for their actions.

Notes on Free Will
Two premises that lead to a conclusion that is problematic.

Freedom is the key commodity of our world, as it is through the cadence of freedom that our choices create through the higher frequencies of Love.
