Default Sentences to ponder

"We know the case of human intelligence. But if we generalize, it’s just computational sophistication—and it’s ubiquitous. And so it’s perfectly reasonable to say that “the weather has a mind of its own”; it just happens to be a mind whose details and “purposes” aren’t aligned with our existing human experience."
- Stephen Wolfram

More at this link if you are interested, but his topic is consciousness, not intelligence per se.

Anyway, it reminded me to play aliens more like the weather...
