I don’t buy it. Musk + Hawking are wrong. Why?
It’s not going to happen because there’s watchdogs *like them* watching. In short, by participating in the system, they’re changing it.
That’s why I don’t worry about it, – doomsday isn’t coming.
To me, doomsday is just a reverberation of western civ’s post reformation obsession with apocolypse and utopia alike.
I have yet to see a utopia. I have yet to see an apocalypse.
Internet is the closest thing to a utopia honestly, though, so we have this at least.
In short, other people can get worked up over it. I don’t have to. There will always be people who get worked up over change. They prevent it from occurring or slow it down. Frees me up from worrying about it.
