In the future lasers will: eat for us; cook for us; love for us. Currently, there is nothing you can do that a laser cannot do more efficiently.

Important Conundrum(s)

If lasers will, indeed, do everything in the future (which is a doubtless fact), and if, indeed, all which is not needed in this laser paradise will be elminated (hard to refute), what role will humans play in this electrolight utopia?

Perhaps more importantly, if the lasers choose to, indeed, eliminate us, could we say they were wrong?

If humanity is not eliminated, will lasers die for us?

I'm not sure this kind of question will be relevant in the future. That's not to say it's not a good one, but I just don't think it'll apply to the kind of thinking that will come to define the laser era.

Sort of like how our understanding of sexuality has changed over thousands and thousands of years.
