The German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer said, as Einstein
paraphrased it, that “a human can very well do what he wants,
but cannot will what he wants.”
In short, the conscious brain was only playing catch-up to what the
unconscious brain was already doing.
The writer Isaac Bashevis Singer, once said in an interview with the
Paris Review, “The greatest gift which humanity has received is free
choice. It is true that we are limited in our use of free choice. But the
little free choice we have is such a great gift and is potentially worth
so much that for this itself, life is worthwhile living.”
