Quantum transition between spaces in a multidimensional Universe and spatial unconnectivity explain free will and solve the measurement problem of quantum mechanics
Spacetime is deterministic, but the Universe appears to be stochastic. How to reconcile free will with the determinism inherent to the Universe? In this essay, we postulate that free will can only emanate from the existence of multiple additional spatial dimensions constituting the Universe. As our space displaces through the temporal dimension, we can choose any of the infinite possibilities defined by the additional spatial dimensions, through a process we refer to as quantum transition between spaces. Reality would emerge from the specific materialization of this quantum transition, resulting in a time series of events. This materialization is based on a fundamental property of any space, independently of its dimensions, which we refer to as spatial unconnectivity. This property implies the inability of the constituents of a particular space to observe spaces located in other dimensions. Therefore, the unconnectivity between spaces would prevent the simultaneous observation of all possible events at a specific time point, as well as past and future events, resulting in a unique reality. It would be the observers who determine the temporal trajectory of events, thus providing themselves with free will. In the absence of observers, all possibilities are feasible, thus explaining the quantum properties of elementary particles when they are not directly observed. Our model reconciles quantum mechanics with relativistic physics and is the easiest way to understand how reality arises in our observable Universe.
