Kismet takes a scientific look at the brain itself, presenting research that supports the naturalistic stance that the mind is identical to the brain. And if mind is identical to the brain, says Singh, then we are all robots whose destinies are predetermined. Singh argues that if we take seriously the idea that the mind is the brain then it follows logically that free will must be an illusion, that there can be no consciousness independent of the brain, and that there can be no substantial self that exists independently from the brain. He further argues that there can be no such thing as absolute moral responsibility.
