A colomn about nurture (development) and innate brain structures. Our brain is important. A car does not drive without a motor, but the purpose of the journey is not anchored in the engine. As long as we are judged on what we do or don 't do in the world, running away on time in a conflict, for example, we are not our brain, and we will have to continue to do it with our free will. We are the essence of our own lives, and cannot outsource that, neither to technology, nor to bio-determinists.
