What did you have for breakfast this morning? Was that your choice? Or did the atoms of the universe over the past 13.7B years collide and interact in a predictable chain reaction that led to you having the life experiences and opportunities which in turn led to you inevitably picking that particular breakfast today? Is free will a myth? In this episode, we weigh up the arguments of free will and pre-determinism. If we don’t have free will, can we take credit for anything we do right? Or suffer the responsibility of anything we do wrong? Prepare for a thumping headache as we meander through philosophy and metaphysics during this episode.
