Of course, things are caused. Everything must happen for a reason. While most of us casually agree, remarkably few recognize an existence in which all things are caused; including our thoughts, feelings, and actions. There is way too much contrary learning in the way. But, perhaps it is time to look at things differently.

Spectating: Becoming Witnesses of Life is a step-by-step excursion through some premises of behavioral science that disassembles the myths of self-control and free will, and replaces them with a radically different view of ourselves and the world that surrounds us. Of particular interest is that this view can be sensually exhilarating and less burdened by unpleasant emotions, such anger, self-deprecation,and guilt.

Martin McMorrow's work provides good reason to learn how to witness the awesome pervasiveness of causality in our lives, and to experience our intimate connection with the physical and social space in which we are moved.
