There is a classic question asked “Which came first: the chicken or the egg?” which according to Wikipedia goes back a very long way:

The dilemma stems from the observation that all chickens hatch from eggs and all chicken eggs are laid by chickens. “Chicken-and-egg” is a metaphoric adjective describing situations where it is not clear which of two events should be considered the cause and which should be considered the effect, or to express a scenario of infinite regress. Plutarch posed the question as a philosophical matter in his essay “The Symposiacs“, written in the 1st century CE.

I believe my current research ideas will create us one of the first true AI “golden eggs”.  This research and future AI research needs to be forever open source and community owned and controlled, this is required if we to want one day create a “golden egg” laying AI goose for the good of humanity.  Great care must be taken that our golden eggs and one day our golden goose does not become the property of giants, governments or individuals they could then abuse and dominate us all.

A mission statement?
Or A 14 point treatise to change the world for the better ?
With no door to nail it on…

Comparing the above mission statement to the statements made by google and  OpenAI is quite telling:

On Wikipedia it says:

Don’t be evil” is a motto used within Google‘s corporate code of conduct.

Following Google’s corporate restructuring under the conglomerate Alphabet Inc. in October 2015, Alphabet took “Do the right thing” as its motto, also forming the opening of its corporate code of conduct.[1][2][3][4][5] The original motto was retained in Google’s code of conduct, now a subsidiary of Alphabet. In April 2018, the motto was removed from the code of conduct’s preface and retained in its last sentence.
