The replicators (primitive ribonucleic acids) started out without a goal
system: they were simply settling into the their most stable free energy
state, based on the laws of physics and chemistry. Yet, from this system,
goal- and meaning-creating intelligence arose. Perhaps an AI with the
simplest directives or starting rules could produce some rather elaborate
and magnificent results.
