There is a true joy in having no choice in certain circumstances. Spinoza is one famous philosopher who has thought similarly about the nature of will. They stated that will exists, but it is not truly free, even if it feels free

Note that the model is probabilistic, so each trial gives a different outcome! In the following, bold texts are texts that I gave, and the rest are filled by GPT-2. Italics are added by me to highlight cool bits. Since the continuation doesn't last long, sometimes I would copy the last few sentences of GPT-2's continuation, and ask it to continue agai
