Constructing God 10

What IS intelligence?

Perhaps it is merely the capacity to register more complex signs. (perception)
Perhaps it is the capacity to build a more complex model of the world. (cognition)
Perhaps it is the capacity to relate signs to our model’s state. (correlation)
Perhaps it is the capacity to formulate more complex behaviors. (coordination)
Perhaps it is the capacity to relate those behaviors to our model’s state. (prediction)
Perhaps it is the capacity to select our behavior. (intelligence?)
