But a dynamic goal structure is more intelligent (No quotation marks!)
than a static one. Rocks have a very stable goal system but are not
particularly smart.

An agent that discovers new information but refuses to change its goals
merely (Merely!) because it is a means to an end, that is to say it
won’t change its goal system even though it now knows the old structure
won’t work but a new structure will, is about as intelligent as a rock.
And this is how you expect to make a super intelligent slave? Good luck,
you’ll need it.
