Maybe mentioned in the thread already. Am I the only one filled with a sense of cosmic dread about these gigantic regions of space with nothing viewable in them?

I've seen a few representation of this. But this is one of the better ones
Fact #7
From an empirical viewpoint, the problem with Free Will (and causality) is reconciling determinism and freedom to make sense of morality.

I appreciate that woman but I heard her go off in favor of a hard determinist argument re: free will, and it annoyed me so much I lost sleep over it. I have to go outside and socialize more, it's getting bad.

Like that's absolutely what she's supposed to say, and it's what everyone who's smarter than me says too, but I had all these arguments and cool facts/logic to wreck with, and I was impotently mumbling to myself in the shower because these aren't actually my friends and they don't know who I am.

I teach philosophy (at a high school level, feel free to make fun of me), but I know enough about all the fields of natural sciences that are revelant to the question of free will. Things do, indeed, look bleak on all fronts, and to make matters worse, from a philosophical perspective it isn't even entirely clear what free will is supposed to be.
Sabine Hossenfelder is great (love her strange German accent!), but I think I saw the video you were talking about, and while she is an excellent science communicator, I was surprised and annoyed to hear her state that the fact that we don't subjectively experience a lack of free will (which we have to assume is objectively true) means that it doesn't matter to us.

like THE KILL, I also love SH. for me, it's because she's on board for superdeterminism, which is the shit (it drives me insane that physicists talk about many-worlds stuff like it's worth attention... s.d. is where it's at)

re: free will, her saying "it doesn't matter" doesn't bother me at all. I don't try to convince people there's no free will at this point. just like I don't try and convince anyone there's no god. you probably have a happier life believing in those things (LOL about thinking you have free will AND that there's an omnipotent god though, am I right!?!)

regarding her stance that you can know there's no free will, and decide not to care... it's sort of like the line between atheism and agnosticism. it's getting into semantics territory, right?

I see it as the the idea that you can chance the course of the universe based on something that can happen inside your brain, and that "something" is at least partially divorced (or untethered) from the stuff that happened earlier. this can probably only make sense in a dualistic scenario, where somehow there's a one-way flow of causality from mind to matter... can't even begin to imagine how this would make sense scientifically. it's ONLY interesting as a philosophical concept, and there's no way it can be backed up scientifically IMO
