Thanks for posting. Great stuff!

You might get a kick of this, which is a variant of Newcomb's Paradox, if you were to believe that artificial intelligence will become all powerful, it creates quite a dilemma.

I googled "Newcomb's paradox" and watched a bit of the video Dylan linked, followed that rabbithole where it lead, and ended up googling "thought experiments are pointless". The article about Roko's Basilisk came up. I read that, etc, then checked this thread to find that you posted the same exact article. What a coincidence.
