But our knowing is the product of our biology and environment. If we grow up in the US where we learn English to communicate, and our parents teach us what they believe we must know, that is limiting to our knowledge base. Free will in its truest form must include knowledge of the world in order for us to make free will decisions that are based on all of humanity - not just what we learn as truth in the US. Language, as most of us know, does not cover all the ideas of humanity that can be expressed by other languages, and that includes all the sciences. It limits our ability to comprehend the universe.
We have free will limitations based on where and how we live.
1 - Unfortunately although, as you pointed out, language changes, the talk, is very much the same...I which Humanity was a bit more creative.
2 - Knowledge of the World, does not necessarily have to imply free will...on the contrary, my will would be free if not to match anything in this Universe.
Freedom would be to create a new set of rules...
3 - Knowledge on Truth, is "Death" ! (when you know, you rest !) (Joke!...or you rest anyway and get to learn by osmoses...Joke!)
(maybe that was what Nietzsche meant after all, who knows...I could teach him a thing or two I guess.
