The brain controls me - determinsim is a logical necessity of this position. We are nothing more than animals, our actions determined by the
electrical impulses running through our brains. Choice is nothing more than an illusion created by the illusion that we are individuals with the
ability to select our own way of acting.
I control the brain - written another way, 'I control the brain / It is a tool that humans use'. This provides a way to discount determinism and
allows reciprocal determinism.
I think we are controlled by our brains, yet this is ultimately depressing, as we are nothing more than empty bdies of 'rotting flesh'.
Human spirit could be argued to show that we are more than our brains, however I'm sure that many animals have acted out the same types of actions
tha would provide evidence for human spirit.
