I Question the Existence of Freedom

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 187 People

    Sometimes I Wonder

    Are we free, or are we determined beings? Is there really such a thing as free-will? Are any of our choices really ours to make, or have they been predetermined for us by our innate characteristics and circumstances? To many, the answer may seem to be a simple "yes, of course...

    I would question this,

    What does it mean to be free?

    There are certainly a vast amount of creative and imaginative possibilities of things I can do. But if I have not yet had the idea or imagined it, can it be said that I'm free to do it? Or is my apprehension of the possibility a condition of my free choice? There are also many...

    If we don't exist in the physical reality,

    do we actually exist? Our bodies are here but the part that makes you you is only on your mind and I read that we only talk for a total of 11 minutes everyday so are we just blips throughout the day showing our existence in tiny pieces.

    If we cannot choose the place

    and time we are born at, what happens in the first years of our childhood marks strongly our character, and our decisions are strongly influenced by our unconscious mind, our freedom is very limited to say the least.
