Uncertainty Principle, Spiritual Free Will, and God
In the modern physics, nothing is pre-determined in principle in this material world.
Elemental particles that constitute atomic nuclei and electrons that constitute atoms have not pre-determined positions, velocity, and kinetic momentum. These parameters are determined only when observed by human beings or through interference by other physical energy.
Therefor everything in this world that is composed of atoms has no pre-determined positions, velocity, and kinetic momentum in the precise sense, though in a macro scale we can calculate, say, the position, the velocity, and the kinetic momentum of the moon.
Therefore, it is denied that everything can be predicted if we can get all information of its physical properties and conditions, such as the position, the velocity, and the kinetic momentum, since in principle we cannot get such information. However, in a macro scale, we can almost tell which side a tossed up coin would show when it falls on the ground if we can get information of physical properties and conditions of the coin and the fingers of a man who tossed it up.
When a man throws a coin, it is physically difficult to explain why the coin suddenly flies in the air. It is only caused by the movement of the hands of a man who holds the coin. And no physical force has worked on the man. His hand moves as he thinks to throw the coin in the air. So, the physical phenomenon that a coin is flying in the air is caused by the man's thinking.
Man's thinking is considered to be work of electric signals in his brain. So, this work of the electric signals in his brain causes the coin to fly in the air. But can energy is preserved through this process?
Or when a man decides to fire a gun in his hand, his deciding to pull the trigger turns to explosion of powder and flying of a bullet in the air at high speed. Is the energy in his brain of deciding to trigger the gun balanced with the explosion of powder and the movement of the bullet?
And from the beginning, how does a man come to decide to pull the trigger of a gun? Do electronic signals in his brain explain the work of his mind and this decision of firing the gun?
There is widely believed that a man has free will. By thinking differently, he can change his life. And, how he thinks on each occasion and at any moment is not pre-determined.
This notion is supported by the modern physics. Even every atom in his brain, which generates or transfer electric signals, is in principle not pre-determined about its position, velocity, and kinetic momentum. Therefor the brain consisting of atoms does not work in a pre-determined manner. But who observes work of the atoms in the brain that control electric signals that turn to man's thinking in the brain? Until they are observed or interfered, atoms and electric signals in the brain cannot take a defined state.
The answer is that there is the spiritual world above the physical and material world. The human spirit in the spiritual world of a man living in the material world must observe and interfere with the state of his brain to determine position, velocity, and kinetic momentum of every atom in his brain. So, the man comes to have a concrete state of electric signals in his brain and thus he can think and decide at his free will. But this free will does not belong to this material world. It belongs to the spiritual world.
Put simply, for man's spirit to exercises his free will and to embody the will in his brain and body, all the atoms in his brain must follow the uncertainty principle of the modern physics. Conversely, as elemental particles and atoms follow the uncertainty principle of the modern physics, spirit of every human being, as well as every living thing, can exercise its power in a form of free will in the material world though its interference with atoms in his brain.
The uncertainty principle of the modern physics essentially makes possible the free will of human beings, ultimately leading to the proof of existence of the spiritual world.
However, there is a possibility that God might beforehand decide every work of spirit in the spiritual world. Or God might set more sophisticated law in the spiritual world.
Anyway, when God observes any elemental particles, electrons, or atoms, they will take determined states even according to the uncertainty principle of the modern physics. In this way, God can work miracles.
In other world, the uncertainty principle supports an idea that a miracle can occur when God, Christ Jesus, or some spirit interferes with elemental particles, atoms, and material in the nature around human beings.
In quantum mechanics, the uncertainty principle, also known asHeisenberg's uncertainty principle, is any of a variety of mathematical inequalities asserting a fundamental limit to the precision with which certain pairs of physical properties of a particle, known ascomplementary variables, such as position x and momentum p, can be known simultaneously.
Some scientists including Arthur Compton and Martin Heisenberg have suggested that the uncertainty principle, or at least the general probabilistic nature of quantum mechanics, could be evidence for the two-stage model of free will. The standard view, however, is that apart from the basic role of quantum mechanics as a foundation for chemistry, nontrivial biological mechanisms requiring quantum mechanics are unlikely, due to the rapid decoherence time of quantum systems at room temperature.
