I disagree with your implying that there’s any messiah complex here. Toombaru tells it like it is, and he/she always seems to provide some great insight.
>> Yeah, sure. Trying to be scientific while talking in poetic, mystical, massively long-winded parables. Okay, I wonder if you said that with a straight face. We already have one Deepak. And this isn’t an insult to anybody here, but nobody here on any board, anywhere for that matter ‘tells it like it is.’ That’s the job of messiahs. Can’t we just be humble and exchange ideas? Nobody here has THE answer.
Of course no one has the answer.
The question: “Do I have free will or not?” is no different than asking: “What color was Cinderells’s hair?” or Exactly how how high did Jack’s beanstalk grow?”
None of the above have an existential reality and to ask questions about them is akin to lunacy.
