Answer: Our brain receives commands and then actuates our body. But this doesn’t mean that the brain has independence.
It is totally dependent and connected to the whole system, like a micro-computer that is occupied only with leading us into action but it is connected to a much bigger computer with an enormous brain and memory.
Question: If we are totally managed from above like machines, what does it mean to be independent? What does it mean to be free? What is freewill?
Answer: To the extent that we begin to understand the upper system, attain and feel it, we begin to acquire freewill and the freedom to act. But in order to do so, we have to ascend to a level that is higher than our current one because now we are totally controlled.
