I'm talking about surviving a nuclear blast. Unlike the movies, there's no guarantee you'll be instantly vaporized. Many will die, but many more will be injured, with broken bones, burns over large parts of their body, blindness, deafness. Then comes radiation sickness, disease, famine, etc.

Same with AI. There are worse options than it wiping us all out.

Which honestly wouldn't be that big of a problem, we've seen crazier stuff in nature before. The issue is that a wheel is a bad and inefficient design for the surface of Earth, which is rough, sloped, covered with stuff, dry, sticky etc. As humans we didn't invent only wheels, we also invented roads to go along with them and leveled rock formations, hills, forests etc to build them. In a fully natural world without roads, wheels are useless.
