    Slight elaboration.

    Free will is the shakiest of the three assumptions. It is least subject to experimental test since the subjective sense of free will is rather

    In other words, the experiment suggests that one or more of the assumptions—the idea that there is a reality we can agree on, the idea that we have freedom of choice, or the idea of locality—must be
