Refutation of the Strong Free Will Hypothesis Based on Its Defective Min' Copyright © 2018 by Colin James III All Rights Reserved.

Authors: Colin James III

"MIN′: In an A-first frame, B can freely choose any one of the 33 directions w, and a’s prior response is independent of B’s choice. Similarly, in a B-first frame, A can independently freely choose any one of the 40 triples x, y, z, and b’s prior response is independent of A’s choice." The equation as rendered is not tautologous. This means axiom MIN', as replacement for the previous FIN in the Free Will theorem, is not tautologous. Because the assumption of axiom MIN' is essential to the authors' proof, the Strong Free Will theorem is also not tautologous and refuted by its own derivation. This also means the Strong Free Will theorem can not be reasserted by resurrection as such.
