Free Will Quote of the Moment

"This is the big one.  The notion that we have free will -- the ability to exercise conscious control over our actions and decisions -- is deeply ingrained in us...  We all have a sense of agency -- the conviction that even though we did one thing, we could have done another, and that at any given moment we have free choice of any number of actions.  Yet it seems that this is an elaborate illusion created by your brain.  The conclusion is inescapable.  We really are deluded." -Graham Lawton, Deputy Editor of New Scientist  weekly
