I understand and thank you for the links. I have much to learn, you won't hear from me for quite sometime if ever. However I am eager to listen.

Welcome to SL4! This list is specifically for discussing *advanced
topics* in futurism, AGI, etc. Please familiarize yourself with some
of the already-published material before posting; it is the explicit
policy of SL4 not to rehash the basics. It's much easier to learn from
reading the literature than browsing the list archives; there are over
10,000 messages in the archives, far too many for any one person to be
familiar with all of them. In particular, see,,

NOTE: By "intelligent systems", we do not mean the types of systems
used in weather forecasting or chess playing. See
