Then a Turing Machine has free will because it can correctly predict that
it will list all the factors of 128 and then stop, and it can correctly it
will never list all the prime numbers and then stop.  The Turing machine
doesn't know if it will ever print out the smallest  even number greater
than 4 is not the sum of two primes greater than 2 because neither it nor
we currently have a proof to show its true or a counterexample to show its
