Thank you. I’ve been struggling with the benevolent AI conclusion as our final option for a good while. It’s our emotional nature that will destroy us if our failure to internalize logical processes doesn’t kill us first. And that doesn’t even touch on our inability to organize ourselves at a planetary level to deal with complex, nonlinear planetary problems.
There is a limit on talking about this in essays. Some folks get spooked. It’s safer to deal with it in stories. I’m finally starting to do that.
