Our brains are designed to make choices. We do it constantly. Literally millions of times per day.
I find myself making choices out of habit because I am sometimes lazy. I am tired, do not want to think, expel energy to make a choice.
Other times when I make habitual choices it is about routine, leveraging the power of not thinking and using my time more wisely or many times making the same choice to create a predictable result.
So what are you thinking about consciousness???
