Possibly that something resides within the quantum realm? Hence any interaction is rather hard to detect in our macro environment, sort of like quantum Ashakic records/program.
That's why technologies such as artificial intelligence and biological engineering may very well pave the way as to us Humans being able to answer such questions as to what free will actually comprises.
The quantum environment does not necessarily follow the same set of physical laws that our own macro environment does.
So, is survival evil if living means some level of immorality?
That's an interesting question, i suppose if we experience the physical world here and the quantum somewhere else our experience of such may differ substantially, depending on our perspective.
Again we cannot know that because we operate, or so we think at the macro level, and do not exactly have a window as of yet in to the quantum realm, so how could we know whether or not awareness is the same never mind "Awareness would be awareness"?
You are saying it like its absolute fact through, there are multiple different interpretations of the reality we experience other than just your own.
Cause and effect are important factors where freewill is concerned yet nether follow the same paradigm that they do here at the quantum scale, suggesting some rather strange implications associated with where(Or when) our thoughts could emanate from.
If thought is not awareness then what is it?
How can you think with out at least being partially aware?
I postulate that such entity's could exist or come into being just as easily, if not more so, as we seem to have materialized/evolved.
Tomato Tomato, same thing different packaging.

If there is no influence it is based on will alone.
The difference is influence includes both internal and external factors. At least that's how I mean it.
I studied ants running through a maze. When they first come to an intersection, they choose a way to go. How is this choice made if there were no influences involved?
Ants are programmed to have at least some level of logic and instinct. That is their genetic influence to act that way.
