Well, I think you are very badly deluded. Actually I think that *both* my
system and Peter's have the potential to represent all the cognitive
constructs hypothesized in Creating Friendly AI. I think it will be
*easier* to get Novamente to represent these (and other important) cognitive
constructs in a useful way, but that's a different issue.

Fortunately, it is not necessary to get your approval to pursue the
attempted construction of AGI systems ;>
