The subjective mind arises from the material but is itself not material and so cannot be measured materially (which is why the only evidence of subjective thoughts is personal experience). If this is true, then the choice to toss the die would not need to occur at a frequency predicted by randomness. This what I call a nonrandom indeterminate event and claim would be a prediction of free will.

Just make sure one pays no attention to the hypothesized reliable interaction between this 'subjective mind which cannot be measured materially' and material stuff. This must be forever unexamined or investigated or even described so that it can remain the hiding place for the non-determined / non-random contradiction.
