but it's not really a "choice" since you are destined to always "choose" a particular "optionć due to your brain-state at the moment of choosing — LuckyR
Determinism seems flawed in that regard because it looks backwards to the present and says the sum of all my choices lead to me having or not having my breakfast. — kindred
does this not imply that I have free will? If so why not ? — kindred

"An illusion" is that which is not what it seems to be. "An array of choices" is, in fact, only some predictions based on inertia, biases, assumptions, incomplete / incorrect information and do not determine (cause) actions or outcomes (effects).How could it be an illusion though, seems to me I have an array of choices. — kindred
Seems to me I can control what I can or can’t do or decide to do or not do in the future. For example I did not shoplift today … does this mean I have a choice over my actions or is this merely an illusion? — kindred

Löwenheim–Skolem theorem
In mathematical logic, the Löwenheim–Skolem theorem is a theorem on the existence and cardinality of models, named after Leopold Löwenheim and Thoralf Skolem.
The precise formulation is given below. It implies that if a countable first-order theory has an infinite model, then for every infinite cardinal number κ it has a model of size κ, and that no first-order theory with an infinite model can have a unique model up to isomorphism.
As a consequence, first-order theories are unable to control the cardinality of their infinite models.

In mathematical logic, a non-standard model of arithmetic is a model of first-order Peano arithmetic that contains non-standard numbers.

From the incompleteness theorems
Gödel's incompleteness theorems also imply the existence of non-standard models of arithmetic. The incompleteness theorems show that a particular sentence G, the Gödel sentence of Peano arithmetic, is neither provable nor disprovable in Peano arithmetic. By the completeness theorem, this means that G is false in some model of Peano arithmetic. However, G is true in the standard model of arithmetic, and therefore any model in which G is false must be a non-standard model.
Again, complete gibberish. Gödel has nothing to do with multiverses. — Lionino
Let's see if that post-grad talk about math is backed by undergrad knowledge. — Lionino
By the fact your conscious awareness, which is only in the top 10% of the brain, doesn't know all the processes that lead to a decision, only the final result. Yes, it's 'you' deciding, but you can't have decided differently.If the “body and brain make the decisions”, and you are the body and brain, how are you not making decisions? — NOS4A2
but you can't have decided differently. — Vera Mont
You fail to understand the discussion about non-standard models of arithmetic. — Tarskian
Parts of model theory are my personal interest. It is my hobby. I am semi-retired. I can royally afford to spend my days reading up on what I like. Of course, I did not waste my time on additional degrees. Why would I? — Tarskian
By the way, I am not interested in vector calculus. — Tarskian
This is the same script run by the clinically online on welfare everytime they are pressed about their non-existant qualifications. — Lionino
The crank cannot solve a simple mental computation that every single person in science and technology learns in their undergrad. — Lionino
And yet he insists that he understands things that would only be taught to people in mathematics post-grad. — Lionino
No one who seriously studies foundations of mathematics is ignorant of nabla and the cross product operator — it is like solving quadratic equations and not knowing how to calculate the area of a triangle. Unserious crank rambling nonsense about a field he hasn't been introduced to. — Lionino
I am considered a ultra-high net worth individual. What about you? — Tarskian
Vector calculus was not a subject in my degree. It is of absolutely no use in operations research. — Tarskian
Post-grads are people who don't make money and who will never make money. I don't want to be compared to them. — Tarskian
I became stinking rich from writing code that deals with elliptic-curve cryptography (ECDSA) at a point at which no university even taught it. — Tarskian
By the way, how much money have you already made from vector calculus? — Tarskian
Furthermore, vector calculus has nothing to do with the foundations of mathematics. — Tarskian
Seriously, you are more stupid than you think. — Tarskian
You write like someone who is on welfare. The words "ultra-high net worth" have never come out of the mouth of a rich person. — Lionino
No shit. — Lionino

Foundations of mathematics
This has been called the foundational crisis of mathematics.
The resolution of this crisis involved the rise of a new mathematical discipline called mathematical logic that includes set theory, model theory, proof theory, computability and computational complexity theory, and more recently, several parts of computer science.
