Great stuff, Zampano.  The notion of freewill is a topic we’ve briefly touched on in a previous podcast. Proving it exists (or not) seems like the holy grail of science and philosophy.  Personally, the idea that we don’t have freewill really bugs me (for a whole host of obvious reasons), and it would have grave implications for society.

Sam Harris gets into this and, although I’ve yet to read his book, I will (that is if it’s my choice) ;-).  Anyway, I wonder if he references this test.

Definitely a topic for a full podcast.
