The universe cannot be a machine.

(I reason with the mechanist assumption all along)

Yes, the physical universe cannot be a machine, as it is only an appearance from inside a non computable arithmetical reality.




For life cannot exist without an intelligent observer
(to find food to eat, to judge friend from foe, etc.)

Life implies indeed intelligent observers, but they exist as a consequence of elementary arithmetic.





Is artificial intelligence possible ? No.

I kind of agree as "artificial" is a quite relative concept. Ig God made humans, then that only confirms that artificial intelligence is possible, in some sense. And human will not succeed in making "intelligent" machine, but the truth is that they will not succeed in preventing machine to develop intelligence by themselves. Intelligence is easy, but it is mainly emotional and cultural.






Why ? There cannot be a science of intelligence.
Intelligence is the ability to make autonomous choices,
not choices based on some external algorithm or computer program

Here you should study cpmputer science which excels in self and autonomy. 99% of the work in computer science (and perhaps in education) is more to control that intelligence than to encourage it. Humans fears themselves.
