Hi Bruno

In my discussions of intelligence, I define intelligence
as the ability to (fairly freely) make one's own choices.

That implies through the word "own" that there is a 
fixed identity, the chooser 

A picture of this might be the triad:

choice A                 choice B
       \                    /
          The chooser, 
      which must have 
        a fixed identity

Is there a chooser in comp ? Meaning a fixed identity ?

Does a Turing machine have a fixed identity to make such choices 
(or do anything)?
