A commentary on the final remarks of "BBC Horizon - Thinking"

"if the mind was a computer
then the freedom of the will would be an illusion

[i.e. the will of the will is an illusion of the will ... true]

we wouldn't really think for ourselves
[false, not implied, false dichotomy: the illusion of freedom of will is compatible with thinking for oneself, yet another illusion of the will]
but we do
[think for ourselves that is, illusory or not, it is true by definition]
and instead exactly what thinking is
remains to be seen"
