1) AI:us :: us:cockroaches
2) AI doesn't perceive us at all as individuals; instead, it's him and the
Earth, and they're playing a game
3) Benevolent AI predicts that if we can upload, it'll create a divide
between uploaders and non-uploaders, and one side will wipe out the other
4) Benevolent AI predicts that if we can upload before we understand physics
more fully, we'll stop worrying about physics, then forget about the
substrate, then perish in the collapse of the sun, whereas if it hides out
we'll figure out physics enough to save ourselves
5) AI predicts that uploads will compete/merge until there is just one, and
that one will kill him
6) Benevolent AI sees hostile aliens coming, so builds weaponry, but wants
to keep it hidden from the humans so that we don't kill ourselves
7) Benevolent AI wants to provide us with advances, but is waiting for the
right memetic environment
