If you are reading this, it is highly likely that you had access to (at least) a free and formal education. It is also highly likely that you did absolutely nothing to deserve it. Your being born into the specific place and time you did was entirely out of your control. You did not choose your parents, and by default, any faint glimmer of free will regarding your existential manifestation was swiftly blown dark. If you were born on the central Tibetan plateau into a nomadic lifestyle, formal education is not an option. Why isn’t that your case? Pure chance is why. It seems to me that once you admit that you have no control of your cosmic placement, you must admit that you ultimately have no control over the actions you make during the span of your life. Every future decision hinges on ones initial placement in space and time, so how could you logically be in control of future decisions if you don’t even have a choice on which plethora to choose from? Sure, once you are placed into your arbitrary place, it may feel like you then become the conscious operator of your will. Although I think this feeling too is illusory, does it really matter if you can make choices after being randomly placed in the cosmos? I am actively thinking of ways I could possibly disagree with my own statements above. I understand that the topic of free will is somewhat controversial and complex, but I would love to hear your thoughts.

  • Well it doesn't disprove your assertion directly but by that line of thinking, it would actually be immoral to ever punish anyone for anything as all actions are the product of processes outside of that person's control.

  • However, I do think that just because you are a product of your circumstances, it doesn't make you beholden to them. The whole idea of sentience is that you are self-aware, this gives you agency over your actions and therefore free will. For if you so will it you can change your course. Free will is a consequence of sentience, if you are aware of yourself then you must have free will. A river does not have free will as it cannot know itself. A baby, before a certain point might not be considered sentient, it simply reacts to stimuli, this is why they are not punished for bad behavior, rather they are taught.

  • @astrodaily1 Oh god, spare us the psychobabble nonsense 🤣

  • I agree with text you wrote! And I believe that all things are pre determined every situation and individual are under a force that governs wisely and intelligently all and all and believe that our choices are free more at the end these our choices walk according to what was Pre-determined.

  • Wssup captain cheerful

  • @nessasanntos_ tinha q te marcar

  • We are the only species that has free will. We decide what we do and say and think about. Here is a link that'll explain it to you.https://www.jw.org/en/publications/magazines/watchtower-simplified-january-2017/gods-gift-of-free-will/#?insight[search_id]=4cf51d69-041f-49cf-aed1-a89abb39ac33&insight[search_result_index]=0

  • @danielcampoverd love it! hahahahahaha i meant right!? 😍🙆🏼‍♀️ FREE WILL aka FREE WILLY ... is ALL in the movie. Go watch it ;) THINK for yourself.

  • I think that you meet many people in your life and each and every one has their own say on how things are, and is this how it will always be?

  • I prob botched the statement but that's basically what he said lol

  • I need your definition of "free" first please... great question tho!

  • Все предопределено

  • Shut the f**k up

  • There was a time when I agreed with this. I think a big part of free will is our ability to make judgments about our environment which can alter their effect on our lives. You can’t control your environment, but you have control over how your process and interpret your environment. Same with thoughts. Nobody and nothing can stop you from making internal judgments as you see fit. There is your free will.

  • 👏🏻✨ What a post 😶

  • Wowww..love it😍

  • Be grateful when you wake up each morning

  • @rseshnag Out of the millions of sperm, your parents chose you? (Hint: No!) ...And, do you know how many embryos are flushed out that could "not" attach to the uterus? You weren't created; you weren't chosen, you were fortunate: you were "by chance". 🙂

  • @rroocckkyy50 I am pretty much aware of how life is created buddy :)! Yes off the millions of sperms it was mine that won the race, that cannot be left to chance.. would you say Usain bolt won his races by chance??! I'm not debating that at all..

  • @rroocckkyy50 my point is that when my parents decided to bring life to this planet it was not by chance.. me being created wasn't 'pure' chance! It was the result of a series of actions by them.. to attribute it to 'pure' chance is ignorance at its best

  • I was a broken condom baby. I was not planned at all, and then BOOM! Here I am. That's my life. I just go with the flow just like me and my sperm buddies. R.I.P bothers and sister.

  • Deep!

  • Awesome post, couldn't agree more. Well put! 👍🏻 We are all victims of causality, and any questions of "purpose" (centralized around human existence) or blaming the individual (free will) is absolutely pointless.

  • I think the best conclusion would be that we are Forced to be free and Forced to make free decisions.And about the parents thing,the world is connected,everyone admits this...and because if that,me and you,we are the fruites of our parents free will,as it goes for our children...they are the results of our free will.
