And the reason for the reasons that you nominated in the way you did had a
reason or it did not.

Cannot comment, don't know what ASCII string "free will" means.

I don't know what "free will" means but I do know that determinations are
determined, and it they are determined they are deterministic.

 Cannot comment, don't know what ASCII string "free will" means.

I see. Perhaps I could summarize your above statement this way:

T was brillig, and the slithy toves
  Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
    All mimsy were the borogoves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe.

That is remarkable, you really believe you are the first one to generate
reams of untestable self-contradictory useless downright silly words about
the "free will" noise.

If there are reasons your brain is wired the way it is they are heredity
and environment, if there were no reasons then it was random.

Why are they just my reasons? Other people (not you certainly) have used
those very same reasons, some used them before I did and some used them to
greater effect than I did.

I admit that without hesitation, I admit that some things happen for no
reason, some things are random.

I doubt it but if true then everything is deterministic, although even then
you wouldn't know what you are going to do next until you do it, and the
only way to know what some Turing Machines will do is watch it and see.

> Don't you see that you are using free will right now?

No I don't see because I don't know what the ASCII string "free will" means
and neither do you.

I will take action to try to ensure that the event does not take place.

> What is the reason for I? What is the reason for want?

It doesn't matter what the reason is. If there really is a reason then it's
deterministic if there is no reason then it's random.

And the reason a raindrop hit that specific spot on the ground is the
complex experiences it had falling from the cloud to the earth.

Yes, you sent me flowers because of your will, you wanted to send me
flowers and nothing prevented you from doing so thus you could act as your
will ordered you to do. As to the question as to why you wanted to send me
flowers, why your will was in that state it was in, there was a reason for
that or there was not.

They were beautiful by the way, thank you.

 Then whatever "free will" is it's deterministic.

I don't know what the "purpose of your consciousness" is even supposed to
mean, and I never knew what "free will" meant, so your statement is
gibberish squared.

> > So you don't deny that I am absolutely right.

I couldn't fail to disagree with you less. Only a clear coherent
non-contradictory idea can be right or wrong, you are neither.
