FiDE#6 - Choice(s)

Do we have a choice? We can either look at the world in a deterministic way or see ourselves as conscious agents that intentionally create our interpretation of life and life itself. The later implies then that consciousness is as relevant as matter.

In order to make a choice, we need to have an awareness of actually having a choice in the first place. We choose consciously, but often also subconsciously. Can we get used to another way of thinking that opens up new choices?

Another aspect of choosing is to see the possibilities of choices. Instead of looking at time and cause-effect relations in a chronological time perspective (Chronos), we can see more choices with Kairos - the realm of possibilities. Can uncertainty be such a possibility realm?

What effect of our choices do we experience, and want to experience? Choices define us up to the present moment, and at the same time change is only one choice away. What do we choose and on what grounds? How do we know it is a good choice?

These and more questions related to choice(s) and consciousness are explored in this episode.


The FiDE broadcast - an exploration of life.

FiDE is the abbreviation for the Foundation for Intentional Decisions. At the same time it means trust in Latin. How would a life, a way of working and a society based on trust look like?

In this series of ten episodes Jens Rinnelt and Stellan Nordahl explore life - what it means, what it implies and how we can look at it, choosing life affirming directions.

If life is what we perceive as life, what then is perception? What informs our perception, or in other words how do we make sense of the world? And can we choose how we look at the world?

In this broadcast we embark on a philosophical and experience-based journey to explore life itself and the fundamental assumptions we hold about it. We look at how we form the worldviews, our perception, that we hold. We explore what happens if we choose to take on a different pair of glasses of how we look at the world.

Adopting a complex, holistic and life-affirming worldview provides us with a practical and applicable ethical model for everyday decision-making on societal, organizational, team and personal level.
