Contracting with artificial assistants could get us into the position of a technosphere Ulysses with a crew of sassy assistants who assist – polymechanos-style – by denying assistance. Possible goals range from acquiring and surviving mantic truth to mastering passions through modesty with polite self-constraint. On an education level, this assistance would not mean delegating the performance of a task, but rather supporting the supervision and regulation of de- and upskilling processes for desired abilities such as navigating by map, organizing a wedding, or behaving in a socially appropriate, personally recognized way.
