The answer is – I have no idea! However the below video and the RadioLab podcast “What A Slinky Knows” bring up some interesting philosophical issues about time, information and the nature of our perceptions.
What happens to the bottom rung of a slinky when you let go of the top rung?
One thought on “What Does A Slinky Have To Do With Free Will?”
Well isn’t this a coincidence.
I listened to this same episode on RadioLab just today and was thinking the same. What we see is the past, literally! It’s already happened and it’s taken time to travel the distance at 300,000 km/hr from the object to us so we’re always behind the events.
Sorry folks it’s already over.
P.S. and Cam you didn’t share your thoughts, just asked the question…
