Greetings. I am not a physicist by training I'm an engineer so please bare witht he glaring gaps in my understanding and descriptions of the principles I'm concieving. I had a quick a question that could resolve a conflict I've been having. If the answers to a few basic questions are incongruent to the understanding I've been wroking under then I won't even need to trouble you all with larger convoluted question. simple questions: my first question is do principles of Newtonian Causality apply at the sub-atomic level? my second question is are all sub-atomic particles subject to stable field dynamics? not so simple question: If the answers to those questions are yes, then I've encountered discrepency in my personal perception of reality, which may simply be the result of a gap in my understanding of quantum mechanics. If the sub-atomic particles that make up our body are just following dynamic patterns then how does concept of "choice" or "will" exist? If our thoughts are the results of field interactions in our brain-sponges, then wouldn't that mean that our thoughts are just the progression of over-lapping threads of causality at the sub-atomic level? And our concept of reality just a blanket of illusion over a mass of vibrating particles, participating in their own dynamic confluences reguardless of what anyone "wants" or "feels"? This leaves me at a fork in my understanding. Either I'm way off base and have no idea what I'm talking, or there is a different sort of physics occuring inside our brains. Please, help me physicists!! My engineers perspective has destroyed my concept of choice, I want to see the universe as a perfectly ordered set of interactions and procedures, a sure sign that my education as an engineer has penetrated the the inner layers of my consciousness. I'd also like to note that I was classically educated, greek philosophy and salic social precepts, so I belive in choice, I just can't reconcile it to my current understanding of physics. Thank you taking the time to read that mess.
