I think it confuses (1)computers overtaking human intelligence, with (2)consciousness and takeover.
even if (1) happens which I am sceptical (2) does not follow

Damned ! This positions again ??!!
This test has no point : the current top engines are optimized to play usual games. Asking a strong engine to solve a study is like asking a race car to fly. Very little effort has been put in solving studies compare to play games. Sting-SF is the current most advanced engine to solve studies but the source is close to the original SF.

would sting-sf solve it ? and if it could solve it and still have an elo over 2900 making it better than the best human, then it would be truly pointless.

For this position, even original top engines play the correct move : http://www.talkchess.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=63438
