Drowning In Thoughts...

The monkey curled under his blanket & he thought to himself;

My will is only a helpless puppet. I follow the path I must. All my actions are the result of chemical reactions triggered by environmental stimulations. It is no escaping it. I have no control over what orders my brain will be forced to give me in response to what I am to face.

It’s all ok with me, not like I can do anything to change it anyways! Still I sometimes wonder if there’ll be anything called “The Judgment Day”. Can they possibly convict me of what I was not in control of!??

And then he went to the kitchen to take his daily prescribed pill to stop thinking...

Aha! Not so. It's all miles of neurons and neurotransmitters and nature versus nurture. But you know what? There's always a way to step off the path; to break away. That can be either positive or negative. It's just impossibe to know if you stepping off the path is preprogrammed or if it is free will. By the way... I have to go take my pills now, too.

sometimes it is all confusing. One is always uncertain whether his actions are in response to the triggers or is it the triggers that are caused by our actions...

A vicious cycle while one thinks hard :-)

Precisely why I try not to think too hard. {wink}

It sounds like the chimpanzee is quite depressed! Here is a story about a very depressed chimp who is feeling better now. :)
