You stated that free will could be described as “nonrandom indeterminacy.” I’m not completely sure what that means.

It's almost like the terms contradict each other.

Maybe, but not necessarily. A loaded die does not have an equal chance of coming up 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, so in a sense one might consider it "nonrandom." At the same time, as you throw the die, the outcome is essentially nondeterministic. So, one might say it has nonrandom indeterminacy.
