Operation Mind.forth within Project Mentifex needs technical help.
Yesterday on 26feb1998 the national edition of The New York Times
in a new "Circuits" section published on p. D17 an article on how
"Hackers' Hot-Rod Makeovers Create Turbocharged Palm Pilots." Now
that hackers have devised an INFRARED communications port for the
popular device--an electronic planner/organizer--the manufacturer
will soon release a new Palm Pilot with a built-in infrared port.

Will the Palm Pilot then be a good infrared communication link to
a talking mobile robot that runs the Mentifex Mind.forth software?
The NYT has hackers using the infrared port for TV remote control.

The AI Mind.forth program currently under development will be the
simplest possible implementation of a Unified Theory of Cognition
as shown in this brain diagram (please copy it to your Web site):
