    Yeah I hate this philosophical argument. It genuinely upsets and angers me.

    it was in the list of suggestions given to me

    and since there's no free will I had to do it ;-)

    Yeah, but I think it varies person to person. Some have it more than others, a big part of life is learning to master it. But a lot of what we do comes from the subconscious, I remember there was this experiment that basically showed the brain makes decisions for people before they're even aware they made the decision.

    Interestingly though that idea shows up a lot throughout history long before modern science, kinda crazy.

    I feel similarly about this to I do about believing in a god. If this is a life that someone else has chosen for me, then they're a fucking arsehole lol

    I believe in free will, but what am I? The thing that believes? And what does free really mean.

    Kinda shocked this was so dismissed/one-sided lol. I think it’s at least interesting to consider, even if it ultimately doesn’t matter at all. Like, it makes sense to me that everything that’s ever happened in my life can possibly be broken down to nothing more than Newton’s law on a level that I’m unable comprehend.

    But I think I’m in the camp that says it probably exists even if we’re not always experiencing it.
