Yes. Some say that philosophy hasn't found anything new and interesting in
a thousand years but that is untrue, it's just that philosophers haven't
found anything new or interesting in a thousand years.

Turing proved 80 years ago that in general you can't predict what an
external purely deterministic system will do, all we can do is watch it and
see; and as for the first person expectation we've known for much much
longer than 80 years that often (perhaps usually) we don't know what we are
going to do until we do it.
