Yes, but building *small-scale* single-goal optimization processes is a
different art from building *large-scale* single-goal optimization
processes. Creating an AGI only requires the former, then the AGI
architecture pieces together the results of the small-scale optimization
processes (in a multi-goal-oriented way) to form overall intelligent
