Right. My "morality simulator" idea does _not_ involve any AGI.
To compare, Although the analogy is not exact, "economics simulators"
can range between 1. Trivial evaluation of a known economic function
-- plug in values and calculate.
3. the economics of Second Life (as analyzed, e.g., by Edward Castranova).
"Simulations" can involve human actors as well as computer actors
(non-AGI, of course).
However simple they are, surely they teach something.
