Science two ways

Scientists talk about us having no free will.

They say this because the brain registers the response you are going to make, seconds before you actually make it.

So to one lot of scientists this means we have no free will – the brain has already decided before you responded.


Another lot of scientists say, the brain registering our responses before we respond, means that we have pre-knowing. Our brains know what our response will be before we have to respond.

Which leads to the bigger question.

Is just your brain driving your mind?


Is your “observer you”, your consciousness, your greater self, driving your mind?

If nothing we do is our free will…

If we are more than our brains….

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
