  • I'm interested in spontaneity, which all of living matters have.
  • The problem of spontaneity is relating to the problem of free will and determinism.
  • At the folk psychological view, our behaviour is treated as a reaction responding to external stimuli
    and the modern cognitive neuroscientists' view does not differ so much.
  • But the view ignores our agency, intention, motivation or other mental activity enamating from internal mind.

  • The mind is generated by the brain.
  • The brain is a matter.
  • A matter must obey the physical law.
  • Although it is realistically impossible,
  • we can principally predict the time evolution of a matter with uncertainty of quantum mechanics.

  • The mind is generated by the brain.
  • Could the mind is predicted,
    when the activity of the brain was completely observed and all physical laws were uncovered ?
