Hello. I'm new to less wrong and would appreciate some help. I've been trying to understand basilisk since the more you understand, the less worried you are. While acausal trade requires clear understanding of the other agent, thus ruling out trading with a Superintelligent AI, I've been trying to find a answer to non Superintelligent AI's with which you 'might' be able to acausally trade with. I've arrived at 2:
- There are simply too many potential non Superintelligent AIs to care about a particular one. Also following one could just result is another being pissed at you. (Many Gods Refutation)
- If I can imagine the AI's decision making, then it's not smart enough to create a Utopia or make my simulations to torture anyway. It won't even try an acausal trade then.
Are my refutations valid? Any replies would be greatly appreciated.
Edit: is there a particular reason for the downvotes? I really do need help. Edit 2: spelling
Thanks for the reply.
