I don't really agree with John's point (I just don't see Friendly AI as
having a "fixed goal mind" or slavishly obeying human beings - Eliezer is
quite explicit about that), but IMHO he means that a "fixed goal mind"
*can't* know (as per the halting problem) which tasks will result in an
infinite loop, so eventually it *will* fall into an infinite loop and cease
