FREE-WILL IS OUR ILLUSION.

WHY DID I DO THAT? WHAT WAS I THINKING? FREE-WILL IS OUR ILLUSION.

Our behavior, the decisions we make and the actions we take, are nothing more than cellular responses. How our cells interpret their immediate environment dictates how we respond to our environment. Studies of behavior show that often we are unaware of why we make the decisions we do, and that these decisions can be easily manipulated and influenced by subtle environmental cues. What may seem like a free will decision may indeed not be so. MY CELLS MADE ME DO IT explains the phenomenon of behavior as a matter of cellular determinism.

Cells act individually in response to their immediate environment, modify this environment and we change the organism’s behavior. The behavior of the organism is determined by how its cells respond to the stimuli being received. Any notion then that our will is free is an illusion. Decisions we make are completely determined by how our cells respond, which in part is determined by experiences, perception, genetics. The book examines how environmental conditions influence cell behavior, how human behavior is a manifestation of cellular responses, and how this eliminates free-will decision making. Know enough about your cellular condition and you’ll have a better understanding of why you behave as you do.

Why do people do what they do? This wonderful book explains the science and shows why it matters. We are our cells and this book helps explain the diversity of the human experience by starting with the cell.—Paul J. Zak, author, The Moral Molecule.

"… Robin Hayes presents an empirically based argument for deterministically fated behaviors. Insightfully drawing upon discoveries in molecular biology, his compelling case merges biology and philosophy to a new level ..."—Erik Gergus, Ph.D. Biology, Glendale Community College.

"… demonstrates how and why our behaviors are inextricably determined by their biology and why freewill — or at least the illusion of free will — is necessary."—Terry D. Jones, Professor of Anatomy, California State University, Stanislaus.

Robin Hayes is a microbiologist and Professor at Hartnell College in Salinas, California. With a graduate degree in Biology from Humboldt State University he has more than 25 years of experience in biological research, analytics and education. As a research assistant at Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station he studied bacteria associated with specialized squid glands and their eggs.  He’s developed education material for the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and has worked aboard a Korean processing vessel as a foreign fisheries observer for the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Association. Robin was the senior laboratory analyst for the Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency during the start up of the then largest water reclamation project for food crops in the nation. With the exception of a laboratory specific manual for his microbiology course, this is Robin’s first publication. Forthcoming works include The Biological Contract, an examination of the social and evolutionary aspects of male-female relationship after the children are raised.
