Multiverse Theory and How It Gives Us Free Will

  • October 2, 2009 · 7:30 PM

Some serious quantum physicists subscribe to the 'Oxford interpretation' of quantum mechanics which maintains that instead of a single universe there is instead a multitude of universes, perhaps an infinity of universes, constantly splitting off from one another. If true, we are not bound tightly in a deterministic world helpless to ever become captains of our own ships, but instead we have choices, and our choices give us free will. Come to this Meetup if you're interested in learning something about quantum theory and how it can affect your daily life. It will be a lecture/discussion format in a private home; plan on an hour with a 30 minute question-answer session afterward, hopefully we will not go as long as last time! Please park on the street where there is ample parking and look for orange traffic cones marking the gated entryway. Seating is limited however so this Meetup is limited to the first 20 people who RSVP.

    An interesting theory to ponder upon. It sets the mind to task exploring the possibilities and how's of this idea.

    Very interesting meet-up where people share opinions and knowledge on current quantum and other theories. Very informative, if a bit argumentative.. :)

    Thank you for some very interesting discussion about the nature of free will versus the lack of. There's an amusing YouTube video at http://www.youtube.co... which bears directly on our recent discussion which you might enjoy viewing. It's very short, less than a minute. Karl

    Karl is generous and open-minded with his thoughts and presentations. The group began with his clear laying out of principles of some basic scientific tenets and then opened to questions, which opened up some very interesting interchanges and points of view. Great group!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
