with influence rather than with anything like comp…s a weak variety that falls well short of the absolute sort many advocates of human agency support. Free will is, in my humble opinion, better seen as synonymous with influence rather than with anything like complete control.
Yes; an emergent phenomenon from collective activity, by individual habit, needs and encounters, group creativity or species symbiosis.
Intentionality itself isn’t all it’s cracked up to be until people pass it beyond themselves in a self-sustaining result (useful realization). Humanity is nature’s testing lab for intentionality that emerged out of evolution. We have yet to prove that we are intentional, that it is a benefit to evolution of life (anti-entropic), or that it can be passed beyond our species as a survival trait (ie to another planet or different biome than ours). Until all of these are met, intentional action and awareness are simply random mutations in a long line of mostly failed species.
