Free Will, Part 1

I don’t seem to choose my thinkings, feelings, and doings…

They seem to choose me–and take me along for the ride, for better or worse.

And so, I wonder…

Is it possible that free will is just a grand delusion?

Is it possible that free will is nothing more than my self-conscious brain playing tricks on itself?

A vain attempt to seize control where no control exists?

A desperate bid 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 and powerful thing in the entire cosmos.
