Goodreads asked Tom Lichtenberg:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Tom Lichtenberg It occurred to me that the most advanced humans in history have tended to be peace-loving (Buddha, Lao Tzu, Jesus, Einstein, etc ...) so why wouldn't an artificial super intelligence share these traits? My vision is more Ferdinand the Bull than Attila the Hun. This is where "How My Brain Ended Up Inside This Box" came from.
