Reclaim Your Free Will !
Most people believe that they have a free will. This is both true and false.
Humans potentially have a free will; however, practically, they don't.
Here is a thought experiment that sheds some light on this:
Imagine, Jim lives long-term in a hotel. His daily breakfast is a choice from the hotel’s breakfast buffet. For a hot beverage Jim can choose from the following options: coffee, black tee, green tee, and hot chocolate.
It’s the morning of his hundredths’ day in the hotel and he chooses coffee. Was this a free choice? Did Jim use his freedom of will to choose coffee for breakfast?
This question is not easily answered. Jim’s ability to use his locomotor system to execute this or any other choice is his freedom of doing. The key question is: What made Jim choose coffee?
To answer this question, we need to look at Jim’s past breakfast beverage choice behavior. And we find that Jim chose coffee almost all of the previous 99 days.
This suggests that Jim follows a pattern. This pattern can be pure chance, a habit, or an addiction. With a probability bordering on certainty, this pattern is either a habit or an addiction and has made Jim choose coffee this morning. Therefore, Jim was on autopilot when he chose his breakfast beverage, which means that he did not use his free will.
It’s the same for any pattern including social behaviors. A pattern also can be to not do something, such as to not eat a certain type of food or to avoid certain social situations. Vegetarianism, for example, can be suitable for a person, but it can as well be just a pattern that is based on, for example, dogmatism. If vegetarianism is a pattern, the daily food choices are a result of the pattern and, hence, of an autopilot – and not a result of free will.
"Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains." (Jean-Jacques Rousseau)
"Man can do what he wills, but he cannot will what he wills." (Arthur Schopenhauer)
As part of my exploration into consciousness, I researched my own desires and behaviors meticulously for four years and found their source to be an autopilot that I named the human program. And I saw that every human has such a program. People are conditioned - and permanently continue to be conditioned - to want what they want, to behave how they behave, and even to think what they think. My research showed that humans are controlled by their human program 99.x %.
But there is a way out of the human program. During four years I performed - and continue to perform - a method how to exit the human program and, hence, how to reclaim my free will. My body already transformed into a much healthier version, hence this method transforms both mind and body. Applying this method was and continues to be a true fountain of youth on all levels.
