Viadescioism has the understanding of hard determinism, especially causal determinism, and Logical determinism. It has the understanding that free will does not exist as a metaphysical construct, and that everything is determined based on earlier causes which will determine particular outcomes based on factors that have preceded it. Choice, and action is determined by multiple factors, and no choice can be separate from these determined factors. Even your thoughts, and feelings, are all determined by different factors that have taken place in your environment, and being, and it is the same thoughts, and feelings that allow you to make the choices that you do. Agent action is determined by belief, desire, and temperament towards a specific situation. The factors may be quite incredibly complex to understand, but when all of them come together they will determine an event based on their combined efforts. From the understandings of logical determinism Viadescioism gains the understanding that prepositions about the past, present, and future have a truth value, and can be seen to be true or false based on what has happened, what is presently happening, and what is determined to happen.

Free will can still be seen as an illusion, which may be embraced in moral situations in order to determine responsibility, so that the subjectivity of one’s morals can be based on a more direct constant. This free will illusion allows us to understand that events in relation with us are still ours in a moral sense, especially in the context of everyday situations, and that we can still pay the consequences for actions that are determined upon us.

Viadescioism also holds the understanding of incompatibilism, which states that a deterministic existence, and a free will existence are not compatible with each other, and that only one of these understandings can be held by an individual.

It is important to remember that the world is not predetermined but is determined. the divines did not set forth how everything is going to go before it happens but much rather it is the fact of existence changing from state to state that leads it to its next iteration.
