I really don't understand where the superiority complex comes from, but it's quite entertaining to tear apart.

The nature of the universe. Atoms that just happen to be organized a certain way and aren’t even really alive. Like a rock.

I think someone who fits the role of chemist would have to be a deity.

No one has any control over what chemical they put into anyone’s brain including their own or any other action whatsoever

Save it for our chat on the Fibonacci sequence.

I'm aware of the effect of evolution and chemicals on our brain, but to use that as reasoning for a lack of free will is to separate the self/identity/soul from the body.

Your snarky retorts don’t change the fact that you can’t understand it.

Self/identity/soul?

You’re just clinging to a desperate circular argument. Nothing physical controls itself and everything is physical.

I don't think you're all the way there but yeah. The self does get taken out and is deemed to be an interesting emergent illusion that is required to keep performing tasks by being convinced that it has purpose and agency.
