NON-CAUSED “truly random” EVENTS AND FREE WILL!
WHAT IS A NON-CAUSED EVENT?
An event without a cause. Also known as an acausal event or “truly” random event.
DO NON-CAUSED EVENTS EXIST?
We don’t know for sure. Some quantum interpretations suggest they do, others suggest they don’t.
3 BIG PHILOSOPHICAL PROBLEMS NON-CAUSED EVENTS HAVE
If one came about, it would have no spatial or temporal determinacy. This means it could happen at any location and at any time, or never happen at all. Even assessing a probability of where or when such an event will happen would be problematic.
Due to the above, we cannot say that a non-caused event happens to an existing object, as that object cannot cause (lead to) whether or not a non-caused event happens. The non-caused event would need to happen first, and only then interact with the existing object.
In regards to physics…
