Well, that is so vague as to hardly be worth the trouble of responding to - but I will say that I do hope you were not thinking of referring me here.

However, I should perhaps add that I overspoke. I did not literally mean "any sufficiently-powerful optimisation process". Only that such things are natural tendencies - that tend to be produced unless you actively wire things into the utility function to prevent their manifestation.
