"Leashes can be broken, if there is some benefit to the one who breaks
them. Better to work with the AIs so that they know it to be in their
own benefit not to kill us, than to be lazy and rely on an imperfect, if
simple, barrier to what AIs may do."
It might turn out that it would be to their benefit not to kill us. OTOH,
it might turn out that it would be to their benefit to kill some of us but
not all of us. Or maybe our existence wouldn't matter to them one way or
the other, except as the concept of "god" as a creator matters to humans.
