### If the restriction comes from individuals, your social threat detector
module is appropriately activated, and will give you useful guidance on
what to do to these individuals. If the hindrance is baked into the basic
laws of physics, the social threat detector is useless, instead you have to
use the physics module. In the context of this thread it is important,
since the physics module does not think about your will, free or not free,
it just shuts up and computes. The social module however runs uselessly
around in circles trying to do the job of the physics module, wondering how
quanta impinge on will.

One needs to keep one's modules on a short leash, and make them do only the
jobs they were trained for.
