Are our concious minds only able to question things that we have already experienced?
The only way we can gain information is through our senses. With this information we decide what to do in a given situation.
My question is, are the thought's we are aware of are based around information we have already made decisions from, or are we able to question things before we make a decision. When we gain information through our senses, is it selectively stored/understood through what we have previously experienced, or stored on a blank slate and then set for our conscious minds to make sense of. Or does an initial version of what we call our conscious minds influence the way information is stored?
Hope this make sense.
