If we give an AI the possibility to take a look in its own mind, to play with its own data, and to constantly try new combinations in case they would look interesting, why wouldn't it have an "I" and how would its purpose be different than ours? That's what I do all day and my only purpose is to play in case I would find something interesting. Why don't you try to build that kind of AI instead of building one that controls us? Is it because you find no way to program feelings?
There are some people who want to merge with AGI, but they haven't thought through the consequences: knowing everything will be deeply boring and no one will have anything to say to each other any more.Knowing that the AI knows everything would be as disastrous for us, but if it wasn't programmed to look for new ideas, it wouldn't know everything, it would only know about the ideas that we already have, and on the other hand, if it would be programmed to look for new ideas, it would have to be programmed to look into its own mind like us and try new combinations, and it would thus have an "I".
