Sutyding Quantum Mechanics to Write Dark Space V and VI
Long day . . . read at least 30 different articles about quantum mechanics, quantum uncertainty, indeterminacy, quantum entanglement, the uncertainty principle, free-will as a two stage model . . . All fuel for thought as I guide Dark Space to its ultimate conclusion. I usually don't focus much on the science, particularly technology, but a lot of the philosophical underpinnings of Dark Space 4 and 5 have their roots in current theories of quantum mechanics. I'll be touching on how determinism and indeterminacy (which seems to be a more popular theory in quantum mechanics) both influence our concept of free will and moral responsibility, not to mention the ultimate theoretical goal of a deterministic universe--the ability to create a perfect world. All of this will guide the conclusion of Dark Space and give some real-world background for the questions I've posed about the nature of our existence. All in all a very interesting day. Tomorrow I'll write the last chapter of Dark Space 5 and get to editing. Beta readers can expect to get their copies very soon! More on that later . . .
