Getting out from your usual comfort zone has all sorts of surprising benefits. Let's explore this concept a just bit more;
B. F. Skinner famously said "Free Will Is an Illusion."
Skinner is for the most part, correct, and our concept of free will is a cognitive illusion. However, I want to add a corollary to his observation, noting that we can move a little closer to Free Will by understanding our own minds.
In other words, you are not born with Free Will, it is something you must earn. Call it self-enlightenment through study and thought. PEOPLE THAT DO NOT FIND GOD, WILL NEVER FIND WISDOM.......REAL WISDOM SEEMS LIKE FOOLISHNESS TO THEM. THIS IS EXACTLY WHY WE FIND OURSELVES IN OUR CURRENT PREDICAMENT.
Its called "Independent Thought" for a reason. I assure you this will not be the path most people take.
We need more people who can think rationally, critically and have analytical skills.
I am not holding my breath waiting for this to occur . . .
"It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child."
OUR LEADERS SHOULD NOT BE SO CERTAIN THAT THEY HAVE THINGS UNDER CONTROL AND NEITHER SHOULD YOU!
Those who lack free will wind up being trapped in their delusions and errors by prejudice, biases, and whatever thought-leaders they happen to worship. That is the difference between having free will and not.
