Free will from alternatives may be an illusion, because searching may be based on the memory of free will of other people.

If there is free will (at this point it means [pseudo] free will), "I" can change my mind any time, and realize the change is by myself.

My hypothesis [pseudo free will]: "I" search some alternatives while some decision are made. "I" search from my episodic memory.

However, free will from alternatives may be an illusion, because searching may be based on the memory of free will of other people. And decision may be from memories including free will. Also change of mind may be an illusion, because it may be based on the episodic memory of [success of change of mind].

However again, "I" could realize free will, with the understanding of free will (and/or change of mind).

My program "BLUE" keeps the memory of [searching from alternatives] and [change of mind], and they can be associated from every input. Also I would like to try to create the new program with using English. I would like someone to inform me a web API program for morpheme analysis.

 

On twitter I called the free will "phantom". Is it better to call it "illusion" than "phantom"?
