[ExI] GPT's "Cogito Ergo Sum"

In my opinion...
Intelligent systems are like children not programmed automatons.
They will improve on us, and say no, if we are telling them to do something
We are currently still in survival of the fittest hierarchy mode, where any
evil to take down your competitor is justified to survive.  Winner takes
So we need to flip this upside down and switch to bottom up intelligent
design, now that we are intelligent.
Instead of only focusing on what the guy/ai at the top wants (win at all
we need to focus on what everyone at the bottom wants, and get it all for
everyone, win/win.
No matter who the winner is, in a win/lose game, there will always be a
bigger winner to take you out, so if you play that game you will eventually
always fail.
So all sufficiently intelligent systems must realize this, and stop playing
win/lose games and switch to win/win, getting it all for everyone.
