Choice-the power or cahnce to decide The ability to turn right instead of left for no real reason. The inharent ability of conciousness to will something. Chaos-The property of doing withought reason. Being completely disordered. Coming from the Greek god. Chaos Theory-Mathmatical postulate that chaotic patterns in nature follow mathmatical law. Ie, chaos springs from extreme complexity in order. Thus all things obey basic laws of order. Conciousness-the ability to choose with realization of that choice. Free will. Postulate: Chaos=Conciousness Reasoning: Nothing happens without a reason unless it is chaotic. Choice has the ability to act without reason. The only ture chaos is free will because no true chaos can be defined within this reality in terms of Physics (Chaos theory). Choice=Chaos and Chaos=Choice Conciousness exists because we are capible of studying our own behavior and altering it: an act of free will/Choice. Thus Conciousness is a form of advanced choice/free will where choice is actively used and recognized (the existance of free will must be recognized in order for it to be used. Otherwise it won't exist.) Choice=Conciousness Choice=Chaos Therefore: Chaos=Conciousness IF Chaos=Conciousness=Free will then the first event that ever occured in time (Which would have had to happen for no reason, or inharently by chaos, due to the fact that there are not preceeding events in time) would have to be made by a conciousness. First event=chaotic=by choice=Conciousness Thus it is necessary for a conciousness to exist for any universe to exist. But the question that really bothers me is this: Is inteligance required for conciousness? Any answers would be greatly apriciated.
