Hi Identifix I love your signature. "What we call chaos is just patterns we haven't recognized. What we call random is just patterns we cant decipher. What we can't understand we call nonsense.

Re: Do we have Free Will/Conscious Control of Our Actions?

I need an answer to my question about the seven second thing! How is it possible for me to look at a new topic and make a decision quicker than 7 seconds, which I do all the time. I'm not quite sure what you're asking, you've phrased it in rather an odd way. I think what you're asking is, "if Hayne...

Hi Chuchulainn

I think I would sell the plot, bet its worth wat more than 20 quid.
Auction it in a local bar on a saturday night.
Then with the money I would organise a party to celebrate my life.
