Yes definitely... Since I was a kid, I've seemed to have at times an uncomfortable clear view of patterns and their unravelling... put that way, it might seem like the brain is correctly computing the outcome of various forces and effects... but actually, it seems to go beyond that; in my case, particularly in drawings and writing.
For example, once I wrote a strange short story about a young guy who was in hospital, then his father visited him. They talked about various things, and his father mentioned to him the names of his best friends, Rob, Kevin, Des, asking him whether they had visited yet. Also, in this story there was talk of a girl from Spain that he had fallen in love with.
Fast forward a couple of years. My father was in hospital at a time in my life when I had gathered an interesting bunch of friends around me, most especially... Rob, Kevin and Des. At the time, I was also very enamoured by a woman from Spain. The detail of me being in hospital was wrong, as it was my father. But the names - actual names - were there...
I still have this piece of paper, which even now kind of surprises me. Likewise, I've done rough sketches of people I will meet. It is quite... uncomfortable stuff really.
Honestly, I think free will is an illusion. Certainly on a basic level we're not free: we're as predictable as machines in our addictions, whether emotional or mental. Tricksters and advertisers know this.
On a deeper level, it would seem to me that the illusion of free will is a necessity so that individuals create strength in their lives, by what happens to them. That tension is required, which knowing too much would disable. We only grow by gaining strength.
On this deeper level, it's like a film script being carried out, images flicking across a screen. We go about our everyday lives and we're very convinced that it's all incredibly real. We even think that the brain creates consciousness...
