OK, then the term "free will" is synonymous with the word "random".  But
there is no great mystery in how that came about and it doesn't matter if
microtubules vibrate or not;  as I've said more than once I know of no law
of logic that demands that every event have a cause.  A deeper question
than "why are some things random?" would be "why isn't everything random?".
