Re: Renting

Re: Is free will logical?

You would have to define it first.. i.e. What do YOU mean when you say "free will"? That is kind of my problem with compatibilism, they (re)define free will in a way so that it can be real alongside determinism (i.e. compatible), but it is not what is generally meant by "free will&quo...

Re: Movies

I recently watch Atlas (starring J-Lo). I went in with low expectations given the poor ratings. However I was pleasantly surprised. Worth a look if you're subscribed to Netflix and are looking for something to watch. I enjoyed it, I might be a bit of a sucker for futuristic AI related plots though..
