this right now and maybe never, it may be impossible to explain in

inherent logical ambiguities and rules built into it.
Do you mean that although you cannot express it in English, you could
implement it in some hardware+software?
By the way, a quote from You are not a Gadget:
"The point of the project is to find a way of making software that
rejects the idea of the protocol. Instead, each software module must
use emergent generic pattern-recognition techniques—similar to the
ones I described earlier, which can recognize faces — to connect with
other modules. Phenotropic computing could potentially result in a
kind of software that is less tangled and unpredictable, since there
wouldn't be protocol errors if there weren't any protocols."
Could you use your technology to develop such a thing?
How would a robot that has visual sensors respond to a mirror in its
It is not a bad idea to start with a robot as we know everything what is
going on in it. To this end, a question. What would it mean that a robot
sees his image in (behind) the mirror?
