Dear Brent, to 'your' part: is an urge to find some solution one of your "thought processes"? In speculation you may not realize the train of thoughts leading to whatever is popping up as a solution. It may happen even WITHOUT the urgency I mentioned. Let us say: Just an 'idea' pops up - it may be called intuition. If you are ordered, you may assign it to problems that occupied your mind lately. To 'computers': whenever a computer "produces" a result it is algorithmically based on data IN the hardware/software (you may call it the 'awareness of the computer.) Proper semantics of new (developing?) territories is of paramount importance. You are usually VERY clear on such: would your AI agree to such definition, added: a suiting ID for intuition as well? (I might have a hard time to identify intuition. The closest I may come up to NOW is: we may cut into peripheral 'shaving' into the limits of our knowledge (I call that "creativity") and that may combine into existing questions as callable 'intuition').
