My Radiohead senses are tingling. Free Won't would be a terrific album title.

so the next time you're thinking about something, realize the decision's already been made for you. sleep easier, however, knowing that our conscience can perhaps be used as a veto power.

I wish.......

I dont know when & I dont know why
my subconscience and conscience like to do alot of ddancing when im trying to sleep...
they like to hold a plastic bag over my head....kick me in the gut

those fockers!

As I was just saying to uncle schultz the other day, Radiohead should and WILL name their next album 'Computer Says No'.

Very interesting otherwise, guys (by which I mean, Caisenema).

I agree, very interesting stuff. Free won't, I like the sound of that.

I have always believed that we do need our conscious mind because it is the filter of our subconcious minds. That is why they say we only use 99% of our brains. It is a sort of survival technique because without that filter, there would be too much going on and we wouldn't be able to focus on day-to-day survival things like eating or avoiding dangerous predators. Without the filter, we might even just reach spontaneous enlightenment, I don't know. We certainly wouldn't be able to continue existing in this world for very much longer.

Also, I'm a total freak (you guys know that already) and sometimes extremely irrational ideas pop into my head.

For example, I am crossing a bridge, I look down at the distance below me and I have the sudden impulse to take my purse and just throw it over the bridge. I don't follow through with it because my conscious mind tells me that as thrilling as it might be for the first second or so, there will be consequences if I throw my purse off the bridge. It has my wallet and important possessions in it, for one thing. How will I retreive the purse after I've thrown it?

I think perhaps the difference between me and a crazy person is that I am able to think about consequences instead of just acting impulsively on whatever crazy idea my subconscious mind throws out at me.

Sorry for the rant, not sure this is even related. It just made me think.
