Exactly! It's up to us whether we determine behaviors to be isomorphic

simulating a brain that seems intelligent to us really is intelligent
is a red herring.
I have considered that our particular human intelligence may actually
be an elaboration-evolution of the intelligence of our immune system,
extended to extra-somatic threats.
