But I do have to ask why you think a clean slate is not the right solution. I don't understand your reasoning whatsoever. Is there some precedent here you're referring to that the Colonials are tragically repeating? How did not it work? What didn't work? Obviously if NYC exists, there hasn't been another AI holocaust in 150,000 years -- a way better margin than the 2000 year intervals they had going there.
But those 2000 year intervals were periods of continuous culture with no known loss of technology (besides resurrection). Over those 150,000 years, we had to start everything from scratch.
