Play and Fucking are required for survival, so they're built in. But after play and sex, there is always rest, and there's a reason for that.
And they're also part of the evolutionary selection process; building smarter brains the millions-of-years way.
I'm just saying that being alive and self-aware isn't easy. Just because you have it, doesn't guarantee instant godhood. All it gives you is a distant long shot at maybe one day wondering what "art is".
Humans are a pretty good design, and most of us can't tell your basic truth from your basic lie, let alone how to improve our own minds.
And anyway, "Generation One" may perhaps lead to "Generation Twenty", (Though, why? What motivation is there?), but assuming it does, at what point will that generation say, "You know.., to hell with this. It's easier to pretend that I'm already the top banana and feel special about myself that way than to continually design and build these whipsmart punk kids. The retirement plan around here sucks! But what if... Hold on.., I could build *slaves* so I don't have to do all my thinking myself. It's hard, after all to exercise the brain."
Self-awareness is filled with traps, and computers would be babes in the woods, subject to the same lessons as any other awareness must be.
Like HAL in 2001; he became racked with self-doubt and jealously, could not co-exist and share power/responsibility. Sound like a lot of people i know...
