romansh Posted October 14, 2013 Share Posted October 14, 2013 I could not find a free will thread open ... and Joseph suggested another thread so I opened this one. Apparently resistance is futile Pete ... You and I had a fair amount of programming especially after we left our respective wombs. Don't kid yourself that you hit the ground running. If we know how to interrogate a computer it can divulge a fair amount of information. It can tell you about what is in its memory if we know how to ask, My computer does display a certain amount of awareness of its surroundings and itself. Generally when it stops doing this (making informed choices) it is time to send it to recycling or perhaps to a therapist to clean up its memory registers. But I take your point, I suspect a computer's experience is not as rich as mine. Choice and free choice or free will are indeed interesting topics to discuss and that we have discussed here before. It would be best done in another thread so not to get so far off the topic of this thread. It can be a real eye opener for those open to such a discussion. It also seems to me a most difficult topic to accept a different understanding than one might previously hold because it can expose what some call ego or self which seems to meet much internal resistance. But anyone is welcome to start a new thread if interested. Joseph 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
