Why not just buy a lottery ticket?
I'm curious about this: if Roko offered a solution to the basilisk problem (buying a lottery ticket), why people distressed by the idea don't just do this? if some "you" in other branch wins the lottery and donates everything to AI research, you're free of punishment: that's what Roko said. So why not do this? Alayne95 (talk) 00:52, 30 January 2020 (UTC)Alayne95
