    Human decision process...


    Human decision process isn't the least complicated. Polarities govern between 'yes' and 'no'. 'Maybe', in fact, expresses a flat 'no' as of today.

    I beg to differ.

    you describe a digital thought process. the human brain operates in both analog and digital modes.

    this gives us a huge advantage over systems that operate only digital or only analog.

    Have you ever read anything that didn't come out of a fortune cookie or Christmas cracker?


    Human decision making is rather complex, it involves our perceptions as to the nature of the
    world, our emotions, and combinations of type I and type II decision making.

    It can involve many variables and many possible actions and outcomes.

    Your statement is trivially and obviously wrong and absurd.

    I wonder why he decided to post that and whether it involved a choice.

    Because GB likes to post nonsense and pretend its great wisdom.

    And I like to point out which orifice it comes from.

    Five replies, five 'no' decisions... one with a smidge of rancor.

    I suggest you go back and reread reply number 3.

    GB is, whether he realizes it or not, is talking only about the outcome of the decision-making process. And, in that strict regard, I don't think he's wrong. "Maybe", in that sense, is a bit like "agnosticism"--practically speaking, it is still a "no". Many of us have argued for just that polarity as regards theism/atheism...

    ...and make mine a "No".

    Visted, thanks for the clarity of your thoughtful reply.

    Another option:

    { NO and YES } ----------------------------- 😲 Chop wood, carry water.

    Your alternative illustration offers two choice possibilities to the right; left side simply restates the human decision process outcomes.
