And does your opinion on free will help you navigate your life or impede you? Personally, I don't understand how free will can exist. I'm voting no, for now. It seems like my motives just pop out from my mind and dictate behavior. This makes me feel powerless like I have no say. However, it also makes me feel relieved ... like I'm just taking a ride at a fair and might as well enjoy the experience rather than trying to steer.
