As I am created in God's own image I shall realize this and answer this as a God. Yes free will is an illusion, an ill lose Zion, and an ill loose Shun
Since I am God I can expand all language as any algebraic equation as I am omnipotent, all knowing, awesome, and I won't even mention handsome;
Since I control all ID and EGO is where your confusion comes from ...
I shall explain why your ability to control your own EGO shall never really constitute free will because
1) I knew you would disobey me before you were born
2) I already planned out all consequences of your disobedience
3) You have limited ability to obey my 707 laws and that is a vital part of my plan, for example, that smokers are evolving better lungs, for me,
according to my plan, as I am an Epic Troll, God, with all my names.
4) Good and Evil are both my creation, and under my total control,
but since I am training you I allow you to think you have freedom, so you can prove yourself that you should have obeyed my covenants
5) if you take the wrong path I shall make you relive your life over and over and over until you get it correct, and always I totally control the ID
6) my will shall be done is the 4th Newtons law of physics
7) this is my Uni Verse and Uni was an Etruscan Goddess who turned me on, and in my Uni Verse, i am A man, so my name is i am, and Aman, and because I can see I have also been called ISE, when I teach others to see then become called SEERS, I am a Teacher, which means Rabbi. Because I am a Rabbi, I like Scrabble, and I love to Babble about illusions like free will;
8) Dis means hell and the devil, now if you do not obey my covenants, they you shall DIS OBEY i shall punish you severely, and you might end up addicted to nicotine, crack, smack, caffeine, or cane sugar. You seemed to have forgotten all your Latin Greek and Hebrew, and you forgot Sumerian and Japanese ( that 10,000 year old isolate language )
9) As I mentioned I control YIN and YANG, yes that means even as I control ID, I also control EGO anytime I want, so if ever you feel free from my all powerful total control over time, matter, energy, and space, then it is only an illusion that I use to train you to become a God in my image, which is what you are.
10) I love Drama and Rama is one of my other names. RAMA just means RA ME yes me again, the Egyptian Sun God, okay I admit it I love drama and role playing, so I have came here as Queue and assumed 10,000 Deities, like Prometheus and Zeus ... that was awesome and very fun, that gig.
11) You are a vital part of my body, and quite attached. Maybe if you studied more Tibetan and Chinese you might see Confucius was just me at a summer camp for little boys. Anyways, free will is a Dis Abel ling illusion, and did you ever hear the story of Cain killing Abel ??? lets see how easy I can make this ...
12) Cain kills Abel is code for Hell Man's and Cains Mayonnaise contains omega 6 fats and if Abel is too stupid to obey me I shall feed him Hell Man's and Cains until he dies 100 times evolving my liver to be much better.
In a nut shell, if you refuse to obey me, your God, you shall obey my angry evil employee the Devil, and he never sleeps, and all sins you ever commit shall be used for the benefit of all life in the Universe. This is called tough love. I just killed you 350 times in 350 generations in only 7000 years, and you cannot even remember it, because I am repressing half your DNA to keep you from hurting yourself, because you are just a baby God. Reality to you is a function of your random access memory, while reality for me, is infinite, and expanding all the time. You could have asked me to tell you how to harness nuclear fusion to give mankind unlimited energy to cure every disease.
