Free Will, continued

The reason for our thoughts, unlike the reasons for our actions, can be invented just like the thoughts themselves can be invented. Also, If I ask you to think of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel you may recall what it looks like. This thought is recalled from where it resided in the mind’s unconscious storage. That is, you moved it from the unconscious mind to the conscious mind. You could invent a reason to alter the color of the memory without having a pre-existing reason to prefer one color over another. So you can even invent a reason.
