Flycer’s explanation for better understanding:



The future of humanity with AGI / HLMI / transformative AI:

It is quite likely that artificial intelligence will outstrip human abilities. […]The worst outcome would be that we re-main unsure what to do and unclear in our values and vision for the future, being either swept up by the technology, or alternatively rejecting it outright. We must look toward the creation of a consensus throughout society as a whole regarding the relationship between humanity and machines


Flycer’s Secondary Explanation:

Artificial intelligence may surpass human capabilities, and the worst outcome would be uncertainty and lack of clarity in values and vision for the future. To avoid being swept up or rejecting technology outright, society must reach a consensus on the relationship between humans and machines. This consensus should be created through a collective effort.
