Left & right hemispheres, innit. If you think logic is King, then you've only half a kingdom

Fupping bingo: "your logical, slow mind is a master at inventing a cover story. Most of the beliefs or opinions you have come from an automatic response. But then your logical mind invents a reason why you think or believe something"

Interesting how this fragmented imposter (the mind) grabbed the reins of the whole, in such a wide portion of society. Majority actually believe they are the contents of their thoughts - but all that is is another invention for the thing to maintain power through self-sabotage & limiting beliefs

i suppose it then begs the question, Shat do we have free will or are we just an almost pavlovian set of environmentally conditioned responses?

0 |

You've free will to interpret the external, as this or that, and as a result control your responses

0 |

and you're sure that's not just a gut feeling letting you think that... and you're not just rationalising?

0 |

Good point. If free will is not real, why are such great efforts gone to, to manipulate folks or repress information? Why would this be the case, when we would have no say either way as it's all pre-determined / hard coded

0 |

because those choosing to 'manipulate folks or repress information' are just acting on impulses that make them feel they need to behave in such a manner... yet they rationalising this behavior to themselves.

'choosing '

But for this impulsiveness to develop there has to be several instances of encountering choice and acting upon it. One avenue as opposed to another

0 |

Impulsiveness is basically a byproduct of choice

0 |

impulsive behavior has been should to arise epigentically from environmental factors- mainly chronic stress... some people are rewarded by behaving impulsively others learn that its better to be cautious ...

all down to genes...

whose expression is down to environment...

0 |

Follow that on up and you'll find it all ultimately stems from psychological factors. The impact of environmental externals on the psyche is what causes the illusion of impulsiveness. In every action/ thought there is choice of one over another

30,000-year-old giant virus 'comes back to life'

An ancient virus has "come back to life" after lying dormant for at least 30,000 years, scientists say.
It was found frozen in a deep layer of the Siberian permafrost, but after it thawed it became infectious once again.
The French scientists say the contagion poses no danger to humans or animals, but other viruses could be unleashed as the ground becomes exposed.

Mineral hints at bright blue rocks deep in the Earth

Minerals preserved in diamond have revealed hints of the bright blue rocks that exist deep within the Earth. They also provide the first direct evidence that there may be as much water trapped in those rocks as there is in all the oceans.
