On the WIKI, you said "To construe your volition, I need to define a
dynamic for extrapolating your volition, given knowledge about you." So
I asked the question several times of how you were going to collect that
knowledge. Now you're saying all you need is a definition of future
collective volition, and the AI will make it all right? I don't see
where MY current volition ever enters into that equation.
