It makes a difference, too, whether this is in the first (or second or third) person. "Could have" expresses freedom, and "could not have" expresses lack thereof. Do you want to say, "It's more than a feeling..."? Rock on, romansh!

Fair enough Cito

If our actions my, yours and Archi's (that's first, second and third person) are determined by our choices, which are a result of our determined deliberations, which are shaped by our determined experiences and our determined brain structure, and in turn if the whole caboodle is determined by the aggregate of quantum phenomena that passes as our environment how could I, you or Archie have done differently?
