Deep, Light, and He Can't Help It

I tried to not write this blog post, but I couldn't. Of course you could, you say! You've got free will!

Nope. It sure seems that way sometimes, but I think this is an illusion. A very convincing illusion, but an illusion nonetheless. My friend Craig Collins explains this heavy concept with his usual light touch in this excellent blog post. Not that he had any choice in the matter.

Thanks for the review, Bruce! Reality is like a roller-coaster that we are riding... except that the track on the roller-coaster forms in front of our eyes. Yes, we can't help but ride the coaster, but we have no idea where it's going -- the future is being computed every moment. I should have also listed Julian Barbour (The End of Time) in my bibliography, as my ideas have been shaped by his.
