Is free will an illusion? I donít much care, illusions are subjective
experiences and I like subjective experiences, in fact they are the only
type I know anything about. But I do know that when Iím thinking about
something I donít know what conclusion I will come up with until I
actually come up with it, because it takes my brain time to process
information. After Iíve finished running the subprogram in my head I say
to myself ďI had a choice to make and I made it, I made a decision with
my own free willĒ.

Are all my decisions based on cause and effect? I like to think so, I
like to think Iím a intelligent man, I like to think there are always
reasons (causes) for me acting the way I do; but if Iím honest with
myself I must admit that sometimes that may not be true, sometimes I may
do thing for no reason at all, in other words sometimes my actions may
be random.
