There is a saying - Do the tracks free the train or enslave it? IMO, the tracks provide the illusion of freedom, when the train decides it wants to
go in another direction, he will quickly realize he is not free.
And this is generally the argument I think people who say free will doesn't exist are making.
If reality is linear, like a single movie film, then those who say there is no free will would be right. Just as that train would realize if he
should ever look beyond the tracks.
But I do not see a single track. I see multiple tracks, multiple possibilities. And we can see and prove these on a smaller basis. There does
seem to be a bit of the track we follow that we are limited too. But that is why I bring up the poker game. Although really I think it is more a
matter of understanding how to "move". Are you able to make your own tracks(think for yourself), or are you stuck on tracks someone else
laid(accept the mainstream views)?
