Just spotted this on BBC UK news page, could help weave some intriguing stories on the 'free will' concept.

Interesting, specially the bit about surrounding smells or noises influencing the subconcious mind.

Very interesting. This quote especially:

"And some neuroscientists have even claimed that by examining patterns in the brain, they can predict decisions that we will take six or seven seconds before we ourselves consciously choose to take them."

Definitely food for thought. Thanks for sharing, Roblane.

It is very interesting, if not quite as entirely new as the article makes it seem. It brings up intriguing questions regarding science, philosophy, and morality, but most apropos to the forum, it does offer thoughts and perhaps cover on presentational slants.

Look up the neuroscientist Sam Harris for his recent book specifically on the topic of free will (called "Free Will") and his speeches on the topic on YouTube. Very interesting what scientists are learning about the mind and how we think.

Well...knowing it...and knowing that I know it...are two different things.
