To Brian Greene:
Regarding your refutation of free will in your book, Until the End of Time, I am 86 years old, and sometimes when I do things, I do them according to the probabilistic (Quantum) and Newtonian combination you describe in your book. But then I realize what I just did unconsciously, and I go back to check if it was done right. Sometimes I was right, sometimes I was wrong. That checking was, sir, my free will.
Free will is not an ever present condition; it gets its opportunity at strategic moments in life. It helps to establish habits which take advantage of your probabilistic-Newtonian combination so we run our lives with a minimum of confrontational moments.
In the end, free will still dominates our lives, and determines the outcome. Not everything in our lives runs along a Quantum-Newtonian physics string, if I may use “string theory” in a new way.
