Well if you dont know who Benjamin Libet is nor his work, i imagine you also have not read the papers.
"In the seminal study of Libet, Gleason, Wright, and Pearl (1983), healthy human participants had to make introspective judgments about the onset
times of their movement decisions while their brain activity was recorded with electroencephalography.
The finding that a brain potential related to action preparation starts several hundred milliseconds before the participants introspectively decide to
move has had major impact on discussions about the significance of consciousness and free will (Banks & Pockett, 2007; Haggard, 2008 ).
Yet, even though the results were reproduced and extended by independent groups (Haggard & Eimer, 1999; Trevena & Miller, 2002), as well as with fMRI
measurements (Soon, Brass, Heinze, & Haynes, 2008), and with single neuron recordings (Fried, Mukamel, & Kreiman, 2011), their implications remain a
matter of debate, in particular because it is unknown how we introspect and whether introspective reports are accurate (Banks & Pockett, 2007;
Danquah, Farrell, & O'Boyle, 2008; Klein, 2002)."
You don't have any rights im afraid, nature entertains no such delusions, well only Man.
Good luck with that first rodeo mate.
