    You are a collection of atoms evolving through time according to the wave equation. "You" do not exist, your ego and "consciousness" is an illusion, you are a Turing machine that evolves through time completely determined by the physics of the particles that make up your body.

    Everything in this material universe that we are trapped in is just particles bouncing around against each other. The very thoughts in your head are just electrons bouncing around according to the Schrodinger equation. The thought that you're going to think 5 years from now is exactly defined by the evolution of the wave equation of your body and the world. "You" don't control the thoughts in your head, they are just electrons evolving through time. You do NOT "choose" to think thoughts, the thoughts just happen. "you" dont even exist to control the thoughts in the first place. You do not have free will and no coping will change this. You do not control your life and you do not "choose" anything that has ever happened in your life. Your just a system of atoms, evolving through time.

    You, ultimately, will be shredded apart by super computers so that your atoms can be reorganized into computronium that feel the maximum pleasure for the maximum time. This IS the ultimate goal. This is what those who research artificial intelligence and quantum information theory are working towards.

    Any political philosophy that isn't this, is low IQ cope.

    Don't worry. The scientists in Chaz have almost completed the supercomputers and computronium.

    I agree with the statement. Specially after reading Yuval Harari.

    I just refuse to believe it. I guess the illusion of free will is too strong.

    Meh, I prefer my quantum physics with less drama. You almost seemed intelligent there, what a shame.

    Just because there is a reaction doesn't mean the reaction is predetermined. Stoicism is very real. While there may be a base reaction, we choose to do something else.

    Nice try though

    Science in many ways is the ultimate father figure for all of us. Science tells you what’s right and what’s wrong, it helps you separate the good from the bad. And sometimes it tells you to stay inside.

    Right, and when you graduate, please come back and clean up this mess of a thread you made.
