Devices of Free Will
Logical consequences result in a causal worldview. Currently, search engines reward our work with higher “rankings” - if they fit into a causal logical world of algorithms. Creativity and free will cannot happen in the causal world of information technology. Creativity and free will depend on the spontaneous occurrence of coincidence. In the world of natural law there are two sources of this non-causal information. These are found in the microcosm and macrocosm, along the edges of our reality. Both versions are displayed as variations in Schauraum. Art must be allowed to be non-causal.
