Question text

You know just as well as I do that the guy who collects stamps will not just buy some stamps, he will build The Stamp Collector, and you have just facilitated the end of all humanity :( I would like to ask, on a more serious note, do you have any insights on how this relates to how humans often feel a sense of emptiness after achieving all of their goals. Or, well, I fail to explain it correctly, but there is this idea that humans always need a new goal to feel happy right? Maybe I am completely off, but what I am asking is, yes in an intelligent agent we can have simple, or even really complex goals, but will it ever be able to mimic the way goals are present in humans, a goal that is not so much supposed to be achieved, but more a fuel to make progress, kind of maybe like: a desire?
