I have a noisy brain. Could be white matter interconnecting from a preterm birth in far off clusterings whose cross brain interconnects are poorly ‘shielded’ with a “layer 4” that’s not separate and empty as it “should be” but contains ‘extra” white matter that doesn’t belong there — that’s as far as I got in that dept and it’s mostly speculation on my part — but regardless of causation, there it is.
Hence, the array of choices available to me are not limited to whatever set it in front of me in a rational scenario as presented in a standard multiple choice situation but can go in nearly any direction – yet not entirely any direction because there are always constraints upon any system — such is systems.
So, experientially, the notion of a deterministic universe seems quite absurd; there is no stillness point whereby I can ‘stand still’ and observe a logical unfolding of all things from prime cause, nearly still and already finished from a simultaneous pre-post universe POV – perhaps from The Bulk (is the bulk still a think? I liked the bulk)
Yet, I’d be willing to accept it yet branching, splitting and every system being part of other systems intersecting in anticipatable ways reigns supreme.
