I see your point. I think what I meant is that free will and having agency aren't mutually inclusive. You can have agency and no absolute free will .

Sure. Agency is just the state of being active. Any robot, machine or stone rolling down a hill has agency.

The issue is that we are all just small portions of the big machine or lifeform of the universe. You can imagine us as individual blood cells within the body of the universe. The universe programmed our brains bound by physical determinism and set us off.

We are only experienceing what the universe set in motion eons ago.
