My formal logic training is limited - so perhaps I am missing something in
the language of logic in this note.

It seems to me that the issue here is one of what one chooses from a
temporally finite choice. Finite in time because at any "point" in time
we are aware of a finite (though hopefully extensive) choice of truths.
The range of choices may include "none of the above" and "all of the
above" which would indeed mean that one is free not to choose. One still
has liberty in the act of deciding which truth(s) to accept.

Still learning,
