I think I read it somewhere that slime molds are totally expert maze solvers they must have the most free will of all. (In addition to their predilection for choosing lottery numbers.)

Or the least free will, since the exit route is predefined and all they can do is follow the chemical gradient.

And the lottery numbers must be prescience or magic or something. ;)

So, the takeaway is flip enough coins and you’ll eventually reach your end?

The takeaway is if you try to figure out free will you never reach an end.
