This is one of the most haunting clips I’ve ever seen. Oppenheimer, head of the Manhattan Project and the making of the atom bomb. “I am become death, the destroyer of worlds”. When I saw this clip I couldn’t help but think about our current situation and AGI. Unintended consequences of progress. It’s not exactly the same (we knew what we were doing…it was a race – a necessary evil. We thought the Nazis were much further along, but the absolute malevolence of Man)

This is an absolutely must-see clip:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lb13ynu3Iac

The absolute sadness and regret of it all!

    What fascinates and at the same time perplexes me, is we ALL know that there are going to be unintended consequences of AGI, but not unlike the making of the atomic bomb, there is a race to get this “God Machine”. Whoever gets there 1st will rule the world – hands down.
