That would be fine except I know that is NOT all you believe "free will"
means because I know you would not be happy about a calculator having free
will, but when the keys "2" "+" "3" and "=" are depressed in that sequence
the calculator wants to display a "5".
"No!", I can hear you scream, that's different! Well if it's different then
obviously that's not "all free will means", there is also a very
substantial gibberish component to it.

Very deep. And a calculator can't calculate unless it's calculations
Can a cuckoo clock decide to nail the door of the clock shut?

So a large number of deterministic factors caused you to do what you did,
or perhaps it was random and no factors at all caused you to do what you
did; there is no third way.

The ability to do what you want to do. As I said before I have no problem
with the word "will" it's "free will" that is gibberish.
