After reading the three essays provided in this module, share your views by addressing the following thought experiment.

If the laws of nature are constant and predictable, and we are bound by them… Does that mean that we are not free and that our freedom is an illusion?

Suppose that your alarm goes off and you have two options:

A) Get up and go to school, or B) Turn off your alarm and stay in bed.

If you do A and not B, does that mean that B was not a true and real possibility and you were determined (by the laws of nature) to perform A?

Is it possible to prove that we have freedom and make free choices? Why or why not? (Provide an example)
