*When people speak of Artificial Intelligence, what they really mean is Artificial Self, the artifice of soul. Intelligence is not self. Self is not intelligence.
I would go so far as to say that self is not intelligent, and does not require intelligence. We as humans have difficulty separating intelligence from self. Our machine automatons do not require self, we simply want to impose it on them. Just as we wish to claim the simulacrum of self for our “selves.”
