I don’t do “Truth”, only probabilities.
From my current knowledge and experience base (in as much as those terms have meaning), it seems very likely to me that we do have degrees of freedom.
The more awareness we bring to a situation, the greater the degrees of freedom.
And we are very complex entities, with many levels of incentives to action from both genetic and cultural sources. The more of those that we distinguish as such, the more freedom we have.
And we are too complex for freedom to ever be complete – our consciousness isn’t that fast.
To me, the degrees of freedom we do have, and the ethical and moral responsibilities that come with them, are the most valuable thing we have, after existence itself.
We may have no sure access to truth, and maybe the best we can do is to not do anything that is deliberately deceptive – and maybe that is actually all we need to do.
If we could all do that, thing would get a whole lot better very quickly.
