    The WHO that I refer to is not within the British series , but WHO as the programer of the AI .

    Natural selection constructs a mirror neuron system which is as diverse as fingerprints. Knowledge of sentient reality is the ability to imagine commonly mirrored and shared experiences.
    IMO, all organisms WHO posses a MNS can experience "mental illness", a false representation (program) of the image of reality. A hallucination. The Cuttlefish is a good example.

    Consider the implication of the term " optical illusion". It is actually very easy to create a temporary and curable mental illness (illusion) by the tremendous suggestive powers of our memory mirror function in cognition of shapes and patterns, even when they are falsely represented. Our dreams can be very bizarre and seemingly unrelated to actual reality, yet it is the same brain that does our conscious actions.

    Are we insane (mental illness) when we dream actions, while being asleep?

    Nobody wrote any program for any entity with intelligence or any program for any other feature.

    Evolution selected what worked in the prevailing conditions and adapted as conditions changed.

    Currently in regards to AI I'm guessing a few hundred are seriously into programming.

    I'm under the impression dreams are somewhat akin to defragging a hard drive.

    As the memory is rearranged and stored the random firing neurones create a jumbled kaleidoscope dream.

    , such as found in *schooling*
    Empathy, the ability to experience another's emotions is a mirror function and triggers a similar physical response.in the observer as in the injured sports-hero or the physical shock at the news of the death of a beloved princess, 6000 miles away. Why do we react so empathically at some times and not at other times, another side of the equation.

    Our Ideal understanding and agreement of *common interests* is a probabilistic equation.
    Scary..

    I would presume programmers would concentrate on producing intelligence in general without worrying about the flavour of the intelligence.

    And I would think that sanitary or insanity would only have a flimsy link with intelligence.

    Intelligence of the AI , is based on the programmers .

    Not sure there would be a linkage.

    Programmer will have a variety of intelligence flavours but, as I mentioned, probably coding for intelligence in general.

    But I am curious how you can make the claim.

    Have you known any programmers who have designed AI?

    Has the intelligence matched the programmer?

    The thing is Michael if nobody is watching the programmers , WHO directs the path on which the programmers take ?

    My cĺaim

    Be aware

    You are asking me to be psychotic and watch out for all programmers who might just be programming AI to do what????

    Even if the programmers have a army of watchers looking over their shoulders who will be watching the watchers?

    Remember the watchers would have to be just as skilled as the programmers to understand the AI program.

    I suspect you would lack watchers as they would be doing their own AI research.

    Humans can depart from circular logic now, in the new world, prison they will not need, but instead we can define thy mind with surgical precision!i

    Let's take an example of natural programming of an NPI (Natural Pseudo Intelligence) in Daisies.

    Because the Fibonacci sequence appears so often in nature (long before humans gave it a name), it follows that this type of propagation was arrived at by natural selection as an efficient growth formula. Such phenomena can be found throughout nature.

    The answer to your question who supervises this bio-chemical construct is *no one", Nature occasionally makes mistakes and creates a daisy which does not follow the Fibonacci Sequence. The result is less growth potential and lower ability to compete with well formed (most efficient) daisies. Thus the mistake in that daisy's DNA causes its demise, or is corrected through cross-pollination with healthy individuals, which repairs the damaged DNA. It is how Natural selection eventually leads to species which are most adapted to their environment.

    Darwin himself discovered that a grey mouse can hide well in a rocky environment, something which the cuttlefish is able to do at will, which gives it an advantage over predators. OTOH, a brown mouse is adapted to living in wooded areas, Yet each species shared a common ancestor. In this case both colors gave an advantage depending on the general appearance of the environment in its feeding range.

    Natural Selection is the architect (unaware programmer) of Natural Evolution, including Intelligence and Empathy!

    It is a probabilistic mathematical function of our shared reality (reality as we experience it). IMO, there is no mathematical limit to either fractal constructs such as brains in Naturally Evolved Intelligence and Artificially Evolved Intelligence.
    All of it is mathematically organized, even in it's most abstract form, from the very subtle Implicate to gross expression AS aspects of reality, equations.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ionization

    But regardless of the type of chemical or electro-magnetic interactions, they must follow some mathematical function. Ionization is a great example.
