I’ve been working on an idea for several months: that exerting effort, force, has an subjective feeling, a quale, which lies behind a person’s intuitive idea of physics and causality. 

Downstream effects: when an infant gains control of voluntary movement, by way of this qualia, it gains sense an ability to affect the world and, hence,  free will.
