It is unfortunate that he continues to promote misleading and overhyped claims about weak values/measurements. Remember that 'the future affecting the past' is not at all demonstrated by the experiments he cites. So the problem of free will in this context never even comes up. The whole issue is manufactured.

Free will *does* become problematic in a block universe view; that is the relevant context, not alleged past-directed influences that are simply presumed to exist by fiat.

I don't agree with you of course. :-)
Data from CIA SRI precognitive remote viewing of Puthoff & Targ & the Libet--> Radin --> Bierman ---> Bem data.
Of course that's signal nonlocality violating orthodox QM and Yakir is not including such an extension, though he would be open to it if one could make a lab device to show it.

Also I derived the observed dark energy density hc/ALp^2 as ADVANCED Hawking radiation back from our future event horizon where it is hc/Lp^4 and it is redshifted down to hc/ALp^2 where A is the area of the future horizon. The real Hawking thermal photons are "infinitely" redshifted down to virtual photons appearing as dark energy accelerating the universe.

It's Yakir's 80th Birthday - it's his show not mine. It looks like a very interesting meeting and I will be watching it on-line and making comments that will be recorded on video and sent around the Web via social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc etc.

Jack

What? No Jack Sarfatti at a Back to the Future conference?

What were they thinking?

And thank you for the heads up.

Best
