Mind Meld 53 | Anxiety is the Dizziness of Freedom with YOSHINO
and I'd like to think the choice was mine, but I'm not so sure;-)
Great discussion that makes you think...on your own free will of course...not like MAKES YOU THINK, whether you want to or not.
I just wonder how much free will we really do have sometimes, which reminds me of those stage hypnotists who hypnotize people into thinking they're chickens.
Of course all of the "chickens" feel that they have free will even when they just feel drawn to be chickens.
Apparently if you chop a chicken's head off just the right way you could keep it alive for 18 months, or more.
Sometimes I think life is just a ride that has been mostly mapped out for us and we just get on to experience the ride and take it all in on an emotional level.
A bit like acting out a play that has been written for you and all the other people you meet in "your" life.
But it doesn't really matter about the free will argument as long as you act as if you have free will, because you wouldn't be able to determine if you did have free will or not if you can't recall the script that has been "hypnotized" into your subconscious by the stage hypnotist in the sky.
I say that you should live your life as if you have free will, because that was probably what you were scripted to do anyway. ;-)Bit of a mindf#ck (KFC...the only thing missing is U?-) when you really think it through, that's if you were meant to.
Forget that chicken or the egg argument, this one will make you crazier I think...or hope I'm thinking.
