Free will, the idea that we have control over our bodies and mind. What if I told you it was a illusion. “Free Will” by Sam Harris goes through the process of the brain and how we don’t control it.
Does this mean you have no control? That’s not technically true, he states it that your conscious mind processes your unconscious minds emotions. It can take 10 minutes to transfer the emotions. So you could be sad 10 minutes before you even knew. CRAZY
This doesn’t make us hopeless, the unconscious mind using the our background to dictate our actions. You live with lazy people, you will become lazy. So the best way to adapt this is to change your background and form new habits.
This book goes into all the science of free will. What do you think? it’s amazing how our body beats our mind by 10 minutes to our own thoughts. A MUST READ
