Q: “Do we have free will?” A: Yes but mostly no. Free will is like a placebo. It’s not quite as real as we believe but it works most of the time. We operate through conscious and subconscious thought, but mainly identify with the conscious ones. Our projected consciousness is the feedback report from our […]

One of my short stories: Fred had been a dictator for going on 7 years now, but if he thought about tomorrow being Valentine’s Day he started sweating bullets, and not the good kind. He had to get a date pretty last minute or he would never hear the end of it from his father, […]
