Ideas about Consciousness

Ze Frank, a popular internet icon, created a video about the way our conscious mind works. He sites elements from a New York Times article entitled, "Free Will: Now You Have It, Now You Don’t."

The article and Ze Frank both touch on a 1970's experiment by Benjamin Libet where he "...wired up the brains of volunteers to an electroencephalogram and told the volunteers to make random motions, like pressing a button or flicking a finger, while he noted the time on a clock." Libet found out that actions in the body occurred before areas in the conscious mind were aware, leading him to question the ideas of free will.
