QM hidden variables, the existence of the past, etc

  1. and throughout all this I get the "feeling" that most of you just expect that the "laws" of physics, (whatever they ARE) will remain unchanged thoughout the future!

    This of course cannot be assumed!

    Time, space, matter, of ALL types could very well come to an END in the NEXT SECOND! Can anybody PROVE me wrong?

  3. of course not!!! just like no one could prove beyond all doubt that the past absoultely occured just as anyONE would "INTERPRET" it.

    Thus since the enviorment, or even the physics of the past, (as interpreted) by each individual will be at least slightly different for each person, it can be expected that this will influence the judgements of interpretations of the physics experiments in whatever future "experiments" the two or more people conduct in the future.

    Actually to answer what "exactly" what is meant by "free will" would be better left to the Philosophy section of Physics Forums and would of course entail religious aspects for many so is not appropriate to discuss in depth here.

    However as far as the "physics" is concerned, a person, can consciously make decisions early that will influence his later decisions so in this sense he/she has free will to chose in a physics sense how his future will be. I suppose in some sense this could be considered in some sense a non-locality of space time! OR EVEN TIME TRAVEL?
    what does anybody think of this?

    Kirk, these are good questions ... but the appropriate place to discuss them is the Philosophy section of PF - specifically, the philosophy of science.
