Given Determinism could something be 100% genetically predetermined and yet a "choice" in the most actually-existing sense of the term

  • If nothing is a choice but "choice" is still relevant in terms of being part of human experience then choice could be genetically predetermined...

    Given that everything comes from other things before it going all the way back to the big bang technically nothing is a choice but "choice" and "not making a choice" are both parts of human experience that line up with certain patterns. So a person could have genes which predetermine that they will one day go through what is subjectively experienced as a decision-making process and in the end pick their predestined choice. It wouldn't be any less of a "choice" than if nutritional intake or socializing, or what have you underlay the choice.
