We are not in control of our minds

Question from the Internet:

“Do you think you’re in control of your mind?”

After studying a unique empirical, natural science, I already know that I am not in control of my mind.

My brain, our brain is like a modem, that receives, computes thoughts and desires that reach us from around us from a unique “cloud”, a general desire to receive pleasure which is the basic matter, engine of life in reality.

How these desires, thoughts reach me depends on my unique, individual modem, my own qualities, but even more importantly these desires, thoughts depend very much on the human environment that surrounds me as this environment filters, modulates, cleans, or distorts what reaches me from that general, original cloud.

This is why choosing our environment that influences our desires, thoughts, values, and goals is probably the most important choice in life.

The rest is only how I react to these thoughts, desires I receive, in what way I receive and process them, which is again mostly dependant on the environment I am in, that influences my reactions, decisions according to the general goals, aspirations of that environment.
