So, is this a claim that you can predict with certainty that all
transhumans, posthumans and SIs for all eternity will never decided to
play time-traveling Bodhisattva and liberate all beings or at least all

someday possible to not just simulate but actually reach back in time
and upload the mind/personality of one's ancestors.
