The Physics of Free Will with Brian Keating -- Degrees of Freedom

The Physics of Free Will with Brian Keating -- Degrees of Freedom

(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) UC San Diego astrophysicist Brian Keating presents cosmological observations that have revealed a mysterious universe, pointing to the startling possibility that our cosmos might be just the most insignificant speck of what is now called “the Multiverse.” New telescopes such as the BICEP based in Antarctica hint at an infinite universe with the possibility of unimaginable fecundity, yet devoid of life other than here on Earth. Keating explores what this implies about free will in an infinite universe, with infinite degrees of freedom and choices.
