After we had invented fire, we have hired us a couple of times, stupid. And then the fire extinguisher invented. In the case of more powerful technologies like nuclear, Synthetic biology and advanced artificial intelligence, we should thought of that earlier and we make an effort to do everything right the first Time.
Because we may have only this one Chance. Our future is a race between the growing Power of our technologies and the wisdom with which we make use of it. We should make sure that the wisdom wins.
