Why does free will require indeterminability? As far as I'm concerned, it only requires that *I* can't determine my future actions, and it's quite clear that no deterministic computer can accurately determine its future actions because it quickly hits the infinite regress of trying to model itself. That another, larger, computer could accurately model it and predict its future actions is irrelevant.
