Then again, it's not like I could have chosen otherwise…choice is an illusion after all…
I recommend you use iodized salt or iodine supplements, they may help, as long as you are not allergic.

It's no use recommending anything to MrCode. His mind's made up. He's chosen to choose no choice.

I recommended it because wiki says it helps with learned helplessness.

…which of course just reinforces the whole "actions are determined by chemistry/neural state; there is no such thing as self-control" thing.

Maybe I should just stop giving a sh8 anymore…obviously I can't get away from it; it's everywhere. Maybe it's just something I'll need to swallow my emotions about.

Either that, or maybe it's a word game thing: I keep thinking in terms of "nothing more than" or "never will be" or "cannot/could not/will not". Maybe what I need is more "what you are", "are already" and "can/could/will". :-\

In any case, I apologize for derailing the thread (again )…

Wink

MrCode posts that science implies determinism. He makes this point in a quantum physics thread.
