Here goes:

1.) I can't sit up 'cause my cat is sleeping on my lap so it's not really my decision
2.) no droids of any kind
3.) haven't tasted it yet I believe (otherwise a chocolate chip cookie)
4.) yes please. Oh, and just milk, no sugar.
5.) I completed my first grade in two separate schools but I don't recall any names

so.... where's the part two? And what about my coffee?

Nobody knows why they do what they do (the ultimate purpose), so they are all used or played.

There is nobody here doing anything and there is no ultimate purpose, so who would be using or playing anybody that doesn't exist for no purpose whatsoever?

I can define free will as doing what I want at any moment. So, an idea comes to my mind and I do what I want at that moment, believing I have free will. But doesn't that mean I am not independent, that someone or something else put that idea into my mind, making me believe I have free will, while in fact I don't have free will?

I can define free will as doing what I want at any moment.

Yeeeeah!!!
Lian, thank "you" so much!
The key component for me was "at any moment".
Offcourse! Now my mind sees, that it cannot control itself at ANY moment. Even the wish to control came only NOW, not 2 hours ago. The wish or intent also arises only when it arises. Not at ANY moment, but only when it's "time".
I see now that I don't control myself. Even this understanding is not my achievemnt. It just happened. Not when I asked for it, but when it happened.
It hurts a bit, but is also liberating.

This is another prove that our posts can be VERY helpful to each other. You never know what can click in your mind. Just TWO  words and the next door is opened and another illusion is recognised and destroyed automatically just by understanding. Total mind f**k and I love it. Wow!  :D :D :D :D

Example of typical inner dialogue in the mind or between two characters:
- I can quit smoking whenever I want.. At any moment!
- Oh yeah? Do it now!
- Now I don't want it, but if i did, I would quit immedieately!
- Really? So, Right now do it! Want it right  now. Make this action of wanting right now!
- Well...Eeeehhh... mmmm.... I don't want to want.
- Ahahahah!!!

Love, Artyom.
