This reminds me of Galen Strawson's argument (which has nothing to do with 
stochasticism or determinism) about "ree will. He has a definition of 
"self" such that your self is a real thing (that includes your 
consciousness, which is also a real thing), and to say your self has free 
will can't really be right, since you can't say (seriously) "I am free to 
not be my self" (since it is your self that is doing that): Whatever you 
chose, it is your self that is choosing.

Unconventional Computation and Natural Computation 2019
