It is inconsistent with the clockwork nature of human nature for you to have actually intended to say that. I will grant that you may strongly think that you thought those thoughts, but, sadly, intention itself is a determined, self-generated illusion. By "grant", I mean an illusory instance of imaginary intention on my own part.

I prefer to refer to the fact that a brain can't intend anything that it isn't physically capable of intending.

Not as accurate, trooo, but a bit more pithy.

Right. Mine was longer because I may have thought that I wanted to keep the pith in its pot.

Yours was longer cause that's how your brain rolls.

But what happened to free Willy? I was going to reference the 'Consciousness is an Illusion' thread again.
