Here we are entering the philosophical realm of Spinoza when he saw, and I think with great profundity, that if a falling stone could reason, it would think, ‘‘I want to fall at the rate of thirty-two feet per second per second.’’ Freewill for us- that is, when we feel desire, when we are conscious of wanting to do what we do- may be even for us an illusion. - Philip K. Dick, ‘‘The Android and the Human’’ (1972)
