Actually, AIs might be the answer to Fermi’s Paradox. Because probably a haywire AI (destroying humanity) won’t create a post-human civilization – it will not be designed to be fruitful and multiply. It will probably be totally indifferent to its own survival (or that of its “offspring” or better AIs designed by itself), so if it destroys humanity for whatever reason, it won’t be building a robot civilization or whatever. It will just keep producing those paper clips until the whole thing collapses. Its goals might be totally irrational and result in its own destruction, in fact, it seems quite likely, since survival instinct won’t be designed into it (except if it’s designed to control a weapons system – weapons systems need some basic survival instincts; but then again, it could be faulty, designed as it would be by fallible humans and not by evolution), it will simply follow some kind of goals, and if those goals will result in its own destruction (as well as all of humanity’s or the biosphere’s destruction), which is not unlikely, it just won’t care. (Military AIs might also be indifferent to their own destruction if that would be necessary to reach their goals, whatever those might be.)

In 1873, Nietzsche began to accumulate notes that would be posthumously published as Philosophy in the Tragic Age of the Greeks . Between 1873 and 1876, he published four separate long essays: " David Strauss : the Confessor and the Writer", "On the Use and Abuse of History for Life", "Schopenhauer as Educator" and "Richard Wagner in Bayreuth". These four later appeared in a collected edition under the title Untimely Meditations . The essays shared the orientation of a cultural critique, challenging the developing German culture along lines suggested by Schopenhauer and Wagner. During this time, in the circle of the Wagners, Nietzsche met Malwida von Meysenbug and Hans von Bülow , and also began a friendship with Paul Rée , who in 1876 influenced him into dismissing the pessimism in his early writings. However, he was deeply disappointed by the Bayreuth Festival of 1876, where the banality of the shows and baseness of the public repelled him. He was also alienated by Wagner's championing of "German culture", which Nietzsche felt a contradiction in terms, as well as by Wagner's celebration of his fame among the German public. All this contributed to Nietzsche's subsequent decision to distance himself from Wagner.
