Applied to the psychological arrow of time, that would mean that we could remember the future, instead of the past. We would make a killing on prediction markets if we knew in advance how all contacts would expire.
But, in micro physics, strange things are common. Eliezer Yudkowsky wrote about the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox, lately, but he got all things wrong.
I did a quick research on the Internet and found out that Olivier Costa De Beauregard is still hot on his interpretation of the EPR paradox —-interpretation which introduces the concept of “-zigzagging causality”-, and which abides by both the physics of quantum mechanics and Einstein’-s physics of general relativity.
- Reading Eliezer Yudkowsky at Overcoming Bias is a waste of time.
- It’-s better to read the best physicists directly, when you are interesting in an issue.
- Robin Hanson and Olivier Costa De Beauregard should meet around a round of white Porto. They both studied (and are fond of) both physics and philosophy.
- As always, the solutions to complex problems (e.g., the EPR paradox) are crazy. “-Zigzagging causality”- is crazy, but it might well be the solution.
- Discoverers like Robin Hanson and Olivier Costa De Beauregard were often called on their craziness. When Louis De Broglie first heard about the “-zigzagging causality”- idea, he suggested to his secretary that Olivier Costa De Beauregard had a screw lose. Robin Hanson is familiar with that kind of reaction.
