Welcome to the Squad. I am most impressed by your opening message, it is a
deep and important analysis and I am looking forward to seeing your
biography and future contributions. The little disagreement with me is
insignificant. My point was merely that the morality of a higher level is
not changed by a lower one. For instance: Life's purpose is to transgress
Matter, which is adamant, but of course there are plenty of reverberations
in the Organic realm of what happens on the Inorganic level.
You also see the challenge for the MOQ posed by Artificial Intelligence.
This issue has not been probed fully because each time we have got stuck in
the confounded subject/object "Mind" in contrast to the Quality
and did I spot the same 'difficulty' with you James? I.e.: That Computers
must enter the (MOQ) Intellectual level to be declared intelligent? Magnus
in his usual fashion waved off Alan Türings test for intelligence, but
Türing is after all the father of computation as we know it, so if he
couldn't come up with another criterion of intelligence (than not being
able to distinguish it from a human being), I doubt if we can do any
"There is intellect outside of language" you state. Hmmmm. Perception,
experience, yes. Even intelligence, but the (Quality) Intellect is
symbolic language. It IS language in my opinion.
