But it could be argued that choice is pre-determined making choice itself merely a word to ascribe responsibilty of action to a free agent.
While the question of free-will vs. determinism is philosophically unresolved--probably unresolvable
The way I see it, the whole issue becomes irrelevant and rather foolish when we think of self as illusion.
By my understanding the distinction free will/determinism is useful in our day to day living, but philosophically it is an irrelevant dead end.
Which is probably why mystics think of the phenomenal as illusory.
