Where have I said that death, unconsciousness etc is unable to be included? (And please, let's stick to calling it death rather than "zero" which is introducing all manner of confusions through you trying to mix the discussion with mathematics.) I heartily include death in my case - it is merely the cessation of patterns of activity. The cessation is no more chosen than any other "decision" - and I am not sure of your purpose of raising it as a separate matter, as though it somehow fits outside? You have moved this conversation from discussion of cause/effect, freewill and determinism to trying to prove whether zero exists in the material world?? Yet you have singularly failed to explain how this impacts any of the previous discussions. Your argument seems to be: Zero can't be included - ergo freewill exists. Perhaps you would do well to clearly - and I do mean clearly describe the line of argument from the initial statement to the conclusion.
