I suppose that is one way of looking at it however without the illusion of freewill I really don't think us Humans could or would have achieved some
of the things we have accomplished as a species. Our ability to adapt and overcome has rather a lot do with the notion of freewill.
Our mind and will works by what we observe and experiance, and our mind stores that information. We can not know about something our mind have not
experianced. "You would not know how to open a door unless you knew what it was and what purpous it had". You would not know what a car is unless you
had knowledge about it.
If we live in a community the community shapes our mind and imagination to learn and produce ideas. So in reality or free will is limited to the
knowledge and experiance of the community of the people.
We are were we are today because of the social community we have been a part of up throught time. We dont have more free will to do anytihng byond the
will and knowledge of the society we are a part of today.
