What I am saying is that the chain of causation effectively removes the choice. You will look at the current time step and say, there was no choice, it was determined by X. Then you look at X and say, there was no choice, it was determined by Y. The chain goes back forever, and it turns out you cannot point to a choice being made. ETA: Even if everything is self.
