This of course is repetition of the horror created by contemporary people and is sadly human behaviour endlessly happening and doing harmful things in repeat. Nothing new to me and to many, but possibly it is news to those who seriously are in belief of extraordinary quality and talent of theirs and truly seek the power element to stand on. As these qualities of theirs are proved by extraordinary experts and professionals whom we like to believe because they are experts. We must believe that those who make decisions know what they are doing and are able to choose correctly with what is just, true and right. We must believe in people’s integrity and honesty, but it is made quite impossible. There are few people one can trust if any.
” ‘You,’ your joys and your sorrows, your memories and your ambitions, your sense of personal identity and free will, are in fact no more than the behavior of a vast assembly of nerve cells and their associated molecules.” Notice the scare quotes around you. “You” think that you are something special, a subject who experiences joys and sorrows, memories, ambitions, a sense of identity and a free will. But that, Crick wants to inform you, is an illusion. “You” are an object. “You” are your body, a collection of nerve cells, albeit enmeshed amidst many other kinds of cells.”
