The original poster introduces what free will means.
1) Every choice which is allowed in physics is a random choice or a determinate

3)We have agfeed that the choice of "an arbitrary element" is not a random chaice and
is not a choice determinate by some law.
We haven't even agreed that it is a choice. It's just using a function, as in (. is an
element of X) so (x is an element of X)->true and (y is an element of X)->false. (all
x |x an element of X) doesn't involve choosing an element x, just specifying a function
that defines X. Then it is a "choice determinate by some law." And whether X is
infinite or finite is a red herring. Suppose I said,"Consider an arbitrary person with
no feet. Then he has no toenails." This is a perfectly valid inference whether there
are finitely many or infinitely many persons in the multiverse.
You are assuming that there is no difference between an known and an unknown
quantity. A big mistake!
Can you quote where I have made this assumption?
