Not true. I believe intelligent behavior is the physical manifestation
of consciousness; Iíll never be able to prove it but I must believe it
for the simple reason that I would be unable to function if I thought I
was the only conscious being in the universe.

I donít. Outside of final exams definitions are not important, examples
are.

Of course not.
