I don’t seem to choose my thoughts and feelings, for better or worse…
They seem to choose me…
and take me along for the ride,
oftentimes against my will.
And so, I wonder…
Is it possible that free will is the grandest DELUSION of all time?
Is it possible that free will is nothing more than my self-conscious brain playing TRICKS on me?
Is it possible that free will is just a naïve and foolhardy effort to make sense of an ABSURD existence? An emotional rejection of determinism? A conceited attempt to feel more SPECIAL than I really am?
Then again, FREE WILL may be the most infinitely precious thing in the entire cosmos.
