Free Will I 395
Free will / Poundstone: merely apparent contradiction: that everything we do is determined by the state of neurons - if I myself do not know what I will do, that’s not a contradiction - only if God has told me what I’ll do - (> prophecy) - computer: makes predictions from a simulation of the situation in the room - so it must simulate itself - regress.
