Sorry, Roger but this is a terribly naïve view of 

the physical universe.  For instance, how do you 

distinguish between machine and non-machine?






The universe cannot be a machine. 

For life cannot exist without an intelligent observer

(to find food to eat, to judge friend from foe, etc.)


Is artificial intelligence possible ? No.


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
such as in the game of Life.
