I know of three methods:
1) Convince them, with intelligent argument, that their lives and the lives
of everybody they love, depend upon them actively supporting your ideas.
2) Convince them that the measure of their
self-worth/reputation/everlasting-soul depends upon them actively supporting
In Kurzwiel's case, methods 2) and 3) are not going to work, for obvious
I believe that method 1) has a *small* probability of working if the design
if a Seed AI were written in sufficient detail (not done yet) and Kurzwiel
read *and understood* it.
I believe that method 1) has a *large* probability of working shortly after
Seed AI comes online, and ve calls up Ray on the telephone.
