I will add, with permission, that:

1) Contrary to what I surmised earlier, Eliezer does not have a
reality distortion field.

2) This result should not be taken as evidence that AI boxing is a
good strategy. It isn't, it really isn't. If you're not confident
enough in what you build to unbox it, you shouldn't be confident
enough to build it.
