free will from incompressible information

In http://grampsgrumps.blogspot.com/2009/05/free-will.html I argue that free will arises naturally from the fact that most information is incompressible. In particular the information describing you is almost certainly incompressible, meaning that your behaviour can not be predicted using anything simpler than a perfect replica of you. Feedback is welcome. -- Robert Smart
