Analogously, our discussion of the AI FOOM supposes that the AI will not discover new avenues to pursue other than intelligence, that soak up enough of the FOOM to slow down the intelligence part of the FOOM considerably.

At the start, probably a lot; so this issue may not be important wrt FOOM and humans.
