What does "choice" mean, if you aren't exactly aware that you are making choices?
Some would say that we create our own lives with the choices we make every second of every day. Mostly, we are not conscious that we are making these choices; that in some ways, we are making our lives into what they are.
Most people experience themselves as being thrown around by what happens to them. They do not experience this as making choices.
But what if we all are making choices and we all do create our lives all the time? What would it mean that most of us are unaware of these choices? What if we are all blindly creating a universe with no plan or awareness? If we did become aware, would that make a difference? Would we create a different universe than the one we have, or do we like things pretty much as they are, even with all the things we hate?
