Stephen, In my mind, autopoeitic cognitive systems (advanced enough to use symbols to do cognition) do not have a symbol grounding problem. In these organizationally-closed systems, symbols can only be grounded in internal patterns - patterns that emerge from the way the world perturbs its boundaries. As far as I know the only examples of autopoeitic cognitive systems capable of symbol manipulation are higher animals... nothing artificial yet.
