Jason you had me right up until the last sentence of your post.  There are no universal goals to all conscious life, not even the most basic, self-preservation.  Exceptions are rare, such as the perpetrator of murder/suicide, but they exist.  The notion of friendly AI is to not accidentally create a super-enabled perpetrator who wants to end its own existence and take as many other conscious beings along as it can.  


I am generally an optimist (from most points of view an absurdly self-delusional optimist) but I don’t trust AI to be sane.  It didn’t have the same evolutionary path as we do, so evolutionary psychology do not shape its motives, we do.
