The philosophical question is why is it that the brain is genetically 
wired for self-preservation?

The theory of evolution presents facts or evidence of 
variation/speciation but a philosophical question of why is it so is 
like asking why is water wet?

The so called desires for self-preservation appears to be an automatic 
response as early as the first life forms evolved. Can it be called a 
primitive life form has a primitive response to stimuli/entropic state. 
AI is still in its primitive state of development. It waits for science 
to discover the changing nature of reality. Is it easier to integrate 
AI to scientific laws than not?

Our curiousity is tied with the genes of self-preservation that's why 
we cannot do away spacetime to do away with entropy. It is the other 
side of extropy like the two sides of a coin.
