You know, if all we are is what the physical sciences say we are - chemicals, electrical impulses and the like - why can't we be programmed better? Why can't we have simple algorithms that govern our behavior?
If (num_beers > beer_limit) no_more_beers();
If (anger_level > 8) cool_down();
If (NewcastleUnited.sells(YohanCabaye) == TRUE) beer_limit = 100;
It would prevent so many problems in our lives. We wouldn't have to fall back on that unreliable "will power" which is derived from "free will" which doesn't exist anyway.
Hey, maybe that's why we continue to sin. We're relying on self-denial which has an illusory basis in free will!
There, I've cracked the code. Time to set beer_limit = 45 and crack some cold ones.
