You have mentioned things today which I've been thinking about for a while. I contend that we almost never, absent effort, act willingly. We think we are acting willfully because we can observe ourselves acting, retrospectively, and can then rationalize that behavior. The observation replaces the free-will decision. Our biases have taken over. I appreciate your post much more than you know.

Thanks again for commenting. I appreciate it more than you know!
