I found the concept of flailing and becoming what works useful.
I think the world will be saved by a diverse group of people. Some will be high integrity groups, other will be playful intellectuals, but the most important ones (that I think we currently need the most) will lead, take risks, explore new strategies.
In that regard, I believe we need more posts like lc’s containment strategy one or the other about pulling the fire alarm for AGI. Even if those plans are different than the ones the community has tried so far. Integrity alone will not save the world. A more diverse portfolio might.
