I personally believe that we aren't able to make truly free decisions at any given moment. On a fundamental level the brain has to obey the rules of physics, of which one is that energy cannot be created or destroyed. Same goes for decision making - you can't just suddenly make a decision, it has to root from somewhere in your brain. These roots are predetermined. Predetermined by the biological build of your brain, your genes, the way you got brought up and the situation your in at the exact moment your making your decision. So how can we possibly decide free? If all these roots that lead to our decision are predetermined our perception of free will would just be an illusion.
I just find it a very interesting thought.
