Why do you say this, and where is the perceived conflict?
I'm basing alignment with Turing based on some papers I read
of his, but he has a great breadth, and maybe I missed something
important he wrote later on.
But Ray Kurzweil? I've read too much of him, and I think it's clear
that he agrees with me.
Why do you think there is so much deviation?
