Since free will is primitive, it is not possible to define it in terms
other than its own. That is the problem. It is the epistemological
bedrock upon which all meaningful definitions rely. Meaning itself is
a word which reiterates this by equating intention with sense. 'What
do you mean?' = 'What do you intend for me to understand?'. Intention
is part of understanding (which is why a machine can't have either

The good news is that there is no need to define it because it is
inescapably obvious. We use it to participate in any way with our own
experience. We use it to control and define how we move our body and
appendages. We use it to determine what it is we pay attention to,
what we accept or emulate vs what we reject.
