Back in the olden days, we learned basic fractions before we learned to tell time, so we learned to think in quarters and halves of an hour. When I see a clock face, I usually just look to see what part of the hour we're in without necessarily knowing what specific minute we're at. "Oh, it's nearly half passed," is usually good enough, rather than having to be exact, "Oh, it's 4:28pm precisely." I suppose things have changed a lot since then -- when I was in school we were too busy hiding from dinosaurs to learn much else!

I see your point, but usually those groups don't have the ability to accelerate the arrival of the end times, whereas the billionaires might.

As stated, the companies that push AI aren't concerned with the long-term consequences. But if you want to know how the individuals who run those companies personally feel, do a search for billionaire doomsday preppers.

TL;DR: They've got a vision for the future. We're not in it.
