100: Will

“Free will? I’d rather talk about free beer,” said Bill. James, however, took the opposite view. “Beer is not a good in itself.” So we asked a child, “Why?” And the child, already evolved well beyond the troglodyte, answered, “Because I don’t want to.” Some prefer to talk, some prefer to drink, and some prefer to make their own. Thus we live in a world of our own making, however beset by things we don’t accept.
