Rather, Our Ability to Respond

I am offering a counterfactual to Dewey's choice of action by observing our ability to respond and rolling the bone dice called astragali. This ancient gave of chance is revealed to us in the forme of the Pareto principle.

Rather, Our Ability to Respond

The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action.

- John Dewey (1859-1952)

Rather, Our Ability to Respond

I am offering a counterfactual to Dewey's choice of action by observing our ability to respond and rolling the bone dice called astragali. This ancient gave of chance is revealed to us in the forme of the Pareto principle. I am not saying that the 80/20 rule isn't the one and only statistical model from which the self emerges, I am pointing towards these ancient games of chance as the mathematics that reveal probability theory as we know it today. Coupled to consciousness and the homeostasis potentials we experience and imagine, the probability calculators between our ears substantiate doubt in ordered circadian rhythms of intermittent Reason. Our ability to respond is, in part, determined by this on-again/off-again cycle of surrendered awareness. Felt on a substrate of emotive physiology, reasoning and chance are the determining and individuating factors in our anticipated outcomes of survival. This should be how we view responsibility.
