Is freedom a possibility? All thought is 95% (accuracy +/- 3%) unconscious thought. The mind is embodied. The ego says, Halt, Hold it. The container is one of the primary schemas in which we think. If you put it all together its spells: • Human ideas are conditioned by deep psychological and social forces. • We can operate freely but our horizons are limited. • To facilitate free action we must recognize these horizons and these forces. • Our horizons are determined by the historical reality into which we are born. • Knowledge of our horizons and forces marks a beginning of free action and an ideal marks the telos of our action. • Democracy is a suitable ideal as our telos.
