Oh hey there Eric! I'm also from Texas. I'm going to check out your poems on Deviant Art. I noticed you were talking about them in chat.

Anyways, have a nice day!

Hey Eric,

There are many possible things you can do with this email of which I am very much unable to predict exactly which one you will choose. My hope is that read on.

I am relatively sure that you follow Dan Dennet's progress far better than I follow Sam Harris' progress.

By "coincidence", I was made aware of an article by Sam Harris today with the title: Free Will and "Free Will": How my view differs from Daniel Dennett's

I started to read through it and I was struck by the similarity of our discussion yesterday.

I would hope that you read at least the parts about color in the beginning of the article (if not the whole article).

I wonder if you will notice how much nicer Sam puts it than I do, but basically he is saying that Dan is playing word games.

I quote a little bit of Sam's article here to make a point:

"In Free Will, I argue that people are mistaken in believing that they are free in the usual sense. I claim that this realization has consequences—good ones, for the most part—and for that reason we should not gloss over it by revising our definition of “free will” too quickly."

I quote those sentences to show that if you do not understand them, but you want to, then you might be more inclinded to read the whole thing.

You can share this email with anyone you like except the Devil. Oh no! I am God and the Devil, so if you share it with God, you will also share it with the Devil! Word games, they are so frustrating.

Oh! Can't forget the link to the webpage containing Sam's article: http://www.samharris.org/blog/item/free-will-and-free-will
