Do we have free will? If not, then we are all puppets and every thought, feeling, word, decision and action that we experience are an illusion. This is the only option if we consider empirical science to be capable of producing a "TOE". The output of our brains can then only be the product of calculable chemical and electromagnetic reactions. So the story then goes, that when you choose to raise your hand, that was actually predetermined by the electrical and chemical state of your brain before you made this supposed decision. It's complete nonsense of course. We can claim quantum strangeness provides an escape from this anomaly. But all theories based on this way of thinking are even more crazy and evidence lacking than the original question. Even Hameroff's quantum tubules don't explain conscious decisions. So my question is, does anyone believe that we can have a "TOE" that doesn't explain consciousness? I suspect that all who answer "yes" will have highly specialised roles within science, but would be happy to be proven wrong.
