"I guess instinct's the iron skeleton under all our ideas of free will. Unless you're willing to take the pipe or eat the gun or take a long walk off a short dock, you can't say no to some things."
-Bill Denbrough in IT by Stephen King


@jkalt Somehow I love this even though I can't tell if it is an argument for free will or against it. It seems like it packs a large insight into a short quip, yet it also feels like a Zen kōan that teases me into an interior journey rather than wrapping up reality with a bow.

And yet again, I wonder if it is completely obvious to others and I am just slow to understand its simple straightforwardness.

Is it straightforward? If not, does the larger context make its meaning clear?
