So you're restricting free will in order to increase productivity. Enviable, but misguided. We have computers to do such things. The ideal world would not be one where everyone had a specific, predetermined function. It would be a world where people no longer needed to bother with work and maintainence of society and could pursue the arts and the development of science. You take away free will and you take away innovation. You got 10 billion uber-men exactly the same and eventually you run out of ideas. Let the robots defend the Earth while we explore being human.
The robot and the human is probably fundamentally the same thing though, so they will at some point merge. (see The Age of Spiritual Machines
) Free will in that sense cannot really be said to exist; it is most likely either a complicated sequence of chemical reactions within the brain or random particle movements (or both), both of which can be replicated in a robot, as can be this "innovation." There should be no difference between work and leisure here, since both would amount to the same thing in the end; people could be made to like thinking so that they do think. The "uber men" will all be the same physically (and there will be no difference between the man and the robot), but they will all be designed to think using different procedures (determined by whatever makes up the "free will"), thus attacking problems from different angles. What you are saying is true for the current social era, which will probably last another few thousand years, but it does not hold outside of that. Also, the concept of "being human" is one of these intuitive pieces of nonsense that most people believe to be true; being human and being uh, non-human are the same thing.
And Knock Up means to concieve.
okay whatever, same thing.
Can we get off the whole world dominated by clones, and back to something that is in use today?
I like clones better.
