    All the intellectual discussions aside. This is the heart of the matter:

    I'm not afraid of AIs because AIs are dumb. I mean, they're called computers, but they're not even as good at math as Leibniz.

    Mephistopheles. You at the end are - what you are.
    Put on your head perukes with a million locks,
    Put on your feet a pair of ell-high socks,
    You after all will still be - what you are.
    Faust. I feel that I have made each treasure
    Of human mind my own in vain,
    And when at last I sit me down at leisure,
    No new-born power wells up within my brain.
    I'm not a hair's-breadth more in height
    Nor nearer to the infinite.
    Mephistopheles. My good sir, you observe this matter
    As men these matters always see;
    But we must manage that much better
    Before life's pleasures from us flee.
    Your hands and feet too - what the devil!-
    Your head and seed are yours alone!
    Yet all with which I gaily revel,
    Is it on that account the less my own?
    If for six stallions I can pay,
    Aren't all their powers added to my store?
    I am a proper man and dash away
    As if the legs I had were twenty-four!
    Quick, then! Let all reflection be,
    And straight into the world with me!
    A chap who speculates - let this be said-
    Is very like a beast on moorland dry,
    That by some evil spirit round and round is led,
    While fair, green pastures round about him lie.


    What do you call a human with two robot arms, two robot legs, two robot eyes, and a brain implant? A human. I'm all for augmentation, but it doesn't make you "not human" or "transhuman." Transhumanism is just a weird religion. People usually want their AI to be a robot god anyways, yet I seem to be the only one who thinks it's fitting to quote Faust.

    It's basically https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_of_Theseus paradox. Meh.
