Think! Decide! Think! Decid… STOP! [Harmonia]


Although choosing to do something because the perceived benefit outweighs the financial cost is something people do daily, little is known about what happens in the brain when a person makes these kinds of decisions. Studying how these cost-benefit decisions are made when choosing to consume alcohol, a researcher identified distinct profiles of brain activity that are present when making these decisions. (1)

However the most important question will still remain: Are these changes DUE TO the fact that the person DECIDED to think something, or are they dictating the decision we will make?

And the key here is not related to the question but to the answer.
The key is that there is no answer!
The key here is that BOTH answer can and WILL BE correct at the same time!
Depending on what assumptions we make.

After all, we decide how to think about whether we decide or not to decide how to… well, you get the meaning. 😉
What is, is what we decide.
We can decide everything.

Everything can be questioned!
Everything is!
The lack of answer, leads to something…
The best benefit comes from nothing…

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
