    That is an interesting question for science to answer after it discovers what the mind is.

    A decision is something different from a sensation or perception or emotion.

    Those are all experienced.

    A decision is made.
    Well, that explains everything! No need for further research. All done and dusted.

    So when I say it is an interesting question for science to answer you conclude with your mind it means no further research is needed?

    You do not make very good conclusions with YOUR mind.

    YOUR freely made conclusions are suspect.

    Do you realize that none of that actually explains your contention of autonomy of mind, a mind operating a brain, or in any way supports it?
