It seems you're all making these factors out to be a bad thing. It isn't like we're constantly faced with great unfamiliarities in our processes, since we react in similar ways to many different things, and we are accustomed to how we process things. Your processes can change with age, but they will still retain familiarity because of the illusion of self. It's a strange thing to have, really, rather than trying to control your different processes. It's like shutting down a computer or booting it up again because of one single process. That's what we have Task Manager for, that's what we have emotional manager for. But alas, you are still comforted by your processes that do not even permit you free will, as you know no other processes inter-personally. So, if not really having free will isn't quite so bad after all, why don't we all just take this thread to General Discussion page greater-than-8.
if will isnt free how much does it cost
and Sylux, u didn't directly chose of course, logic thinink starts at 8 anyway, still, in a general way, seekin for a cure ,is the way humanity chose to change the factors they couldn't possibly chose ...

No, free will would be: You are purely made up of spirit and will, no chemicals, no muscle, just magick. Magick under your direct control.of course , countelss cause_effects the outcome are already there..THE outcome is ours to chose, if not ..i dont see what would having free will be then ?...super hero psychic powers ?
Number one, I didn't choose anything. Number two, I said page, not age. I did not make a typo.and sylux, u didn't directly chose of course, logic thinink starts at 8 anyway, still, in a general way, seekin for a cure ,is the way humanity chose to change the factors they couldn't possibly chose ...
Man, listening to you guys go at it is like listening to a bunch of chemicals bounce off of each other. Gawd.
Every element that produces human consciousness is either made of matter or reactions involving matter. Matter obeys physical laws unfailingly and without choice. Chemical Y when introduced to Chemical X produces reaction Z. Period. There is no way to rescue free will from the reality of causality and physical law. There is no choice.
And now for the real question: do you take the red pill, or the blue pill?
