in thread poll ideas quest 2015

...on which I just have to add this famous observation of...

  • I do something, wonder what I am doing and then my brain kicks in and tells me I had made the decision before I did the deed.

... which ultimatively says that free will is all just a trick of the mind, as some people come to think.

And the most unhappy schizoid version:

  • I decide, my brain kicks in to revert that, I then do something else. I realize what just happened and react emotionally at the inability of getting my wants and deeds to line up.

Oh well, this cropped up. Better not put it in a poll.

Cheers, Sören
