Being sucked into a periscope
Still the mind is dull
Like you need another excuse"
… a theory is primarily a form of insight, i.e. a way of looking
at the world, and not a form of knowledge of how the world is….
.. all our different ways of thinking are to be considered as
different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
domain in which it is clear and adequate…. - David Bohm
Do we live and act according to a complex set of biochemical determinants? Is anything truly random, or is every outcome predestined by the particular arrangement of things and energies at any given moment? Do we really have a choice? When we choose option A over option B, was there ever any question that we really might choose option B; was it always "written in the stars" that we would choose A?
Is free will and choice an illusion designed to keep us from settling into existential depression?
Too. Much. Coffee.
