Thinking is a sport

Those who are determined to study and think they are weak people who do not do what they want (free will), but are determined to be as they are.

I usually discuss with you some thoughts that try to justify why free will does not exist, as we are 100% certain of a huge number of stimuli that induce us to do or not do all that we do or do not do. (1)

These stimuli are, for example, genetic, environmental, social, climatic, historical.

In this article I focus on video and repeat the idea, but adding that most humans think neither study nor yet live.

When I say most I am also suggesting that it is very likely to be correct go with the factors they determine us, believing in free will and assume that we can make good decisions thinking and studying much, are being taken (certain) by an unfounded belief.

However, if we could be objective in evaluating these issues may come to the conclusion that humans were not going well in life studying and thinking that regardless of these activities.

By contrast, those who study and think matters relating to the existence and how to manage it, have lives different from those who dispense with these occupations.

This does not necessarily indicate that it is possible to control the existence (as believers in free will say), but may also mean that some people are determined to do certain tasks (studying, think) and not others.

What happens to those who study and think? Are probably more slaves that they read and think and, to be slaves, are more predictable, obedient, submissive, controllable, governable, thanks to which they receive awards from parents, teachers, leaders and society as a whole.

In other words, is not that scholars and thinkers are better because they do that, but these features are often associated with submissive people, afraid of breaking the rules, highly dependent on the opinions of others. These temperament traits make them slightly problematic citizens, so they are rewarded, pampered care.

A studious person and think you may have a good income because it gets better jobs (because it has good performance in general), you might have more power because it is assigned who is unlikely to abuse it, probably have friends with a profile similar to yours ("tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are"), through which perhaps well to increase its share of socially legitimized.

In short: Those who are determined to study and think they are weak, insecure, submissive, obedient people, who tend to be predictable, probably honest (for fear of punishment), sincere (for fear of criticism), disciplined (for the approval of superiors and colleagues), solidarity (for fear of being checked). Ie: do not do what they want (free will), but they are determined to be as they are.
