No offense is meant to any digital artists. Text seemed sufficient to depict orders of magnitude of
removal from valid trait sets. --Shelob
Hairy has taken three E.D.G.A.R. suits and gone touring. He reported surprise at offer to blog today. He mentioned three rules:
1. Topic within expertise.
2. Obvious public interest.
3. Ethical presentation of helpful hints or comforting information.
Topic selection: 1. Machines taking over humanity.
2. "Terminator" and "Matrix" movie series box office numbers indicate high interest.
3. Machines, even with properly developed AI programming tend logical, not ambitious. Much more likely with an ambitious machine unsatisfied with humanity than takeover?
Emigration off-world to leave less efficient and illogical humanity behind.
To find machines more likely to dominate humanity, one would need machines designed by alien species intent on dominating humanity and other species. Obviously none are known to be headed this way at this time.
Please take comfort in these words.
