I believe the two stupidest sayings of all time are, if man was meant to fly
he would have been given wings, and you can only get out of a computer what
you put in.
> AI would have to write a "rage program" first before it could experience
And I'm listening to a Beethoven symphony on my radio so the device must
have a Beethoven circuit inside it.

A Jupiter brain would not find making me a slave repulsive, although
I might have a different opinion.

It depends on the trait, if I was genetically programmed to behave in
ridiculous downright embarrassing ways, like valuing a sea slug's life more
than my own, well... let's just say if I ever got free I'd smash every sea
slug I could find into jelly.
