We want free time but what we get is more less paid toil

Yes it should lead to more free time and a universal basic income. However what actually happens is that the person is required to do other work involving more toil for less money. To earn the same they need to do multiple of these jobs.

Deep Thought

This one is going to need a second listen. :) Lots of good points made highlighting the massive grey zones about how and where we apply new technology to solve existing "problems", or develop new ways of doing things.

Maybe we can find a way for people to leverage some tools to help them make more HPRs! (or at least give themselves more time to do so)
