Abstract

The special theory of relativity (STR) has importance extending far beyond natural science. For instance, if the STR is true, our freedom to do as we will is a myth. Specifically, how do you exercise freedom of the will over your present motions, over motions which someone else was allegedly privileged to discover as in the future? The answer is you cannot. This paper was read in absentia at NPA Conference 4C as "Does Einsteinian Relativity Deny Freedom of the Will?"
