    1. I think we could try not to be stepped on. Most of our choices are made spontaneously, without rational consideration or even awareness. Those are our free choices because they aren’t dependent. I realize that some people don’t think such choices are possible. They believe every change can be explained deterministically or through uniformly distributed randomness. However, I think we also make free choices which adds something new to any system we are trying to describe mathematically.

      1. I can see it as an idea opposite to Determinism. I can also see it as a Variable in Mathematical Equation. But I am always stumbled with the idea of subliminal and the concept of ‘manufacturing consent’ when it comes to making choices and human psyche. In the realm of thoughts a thought about a thought emerging out of unawareness would be considered a paradox. I think Free Choices can be considered as same, although I could be wrong..

        1. One might be able to convert those choices into wave functions as is done in quantum physics. That would provide a mathematical model of them, but it would only be a probability that we would make a choice and what it would be. The model would not know for sure about any particular choice. I don’t know what “manufacturing consent” means. I do think something called “social mood” exists which constrains our free choices, but doesn’t make them for us. A thought would be a form of awareness and perhaps the start of a rational optimization process. This free choice would be prior to thoughts. Thanks for the opportunity to discuss these ideas!

          1. It was a book by Herman and Chomsky. Later it got more streamlined in mixing the need to fuel excess consumption model(read spending) of economy with targeted advertisement. Hmm.. The ‘prior to thoughts’.. I have to agree its not something I would think.

    1. Good point about our purpose being to continue to see more of it and play with it. I liked this poem:
