When it comes to many issues in theoretical physics I don't have an opinion and I know that any opinion I would form wouldn't be worth much. I don't want to dive deep enough in the subject. I'm okay with not knowing.

I care a bit more about AI risk but it's still not a topic at which I want to be an expert and thus I don't try to form big hypothesis about the subject.

This is more important in cases where you care about being right eventually, less important in cases where it pretty much doesn't matter if you're acting based on mistaken beliefs.

I don't think my personal actions have a huge influence on how AI risk get's solved. I think it's fine if other people focus on having a really good understanding and solving it.
