Artificial minds for uncontrollable mobile robots
Follow archival links to a proposed  Unified Theory of Cognition.
 Unconditional jump to the interactive Theory of Mind Tutorial.
You are witnessing an aggressive memetic campaign to jumpstart AI.
The AI Web Matrix is the noosphere of content-sites with AI links:
The Canon of Immortal Web Sites
 Artificial Intelligence An Introduction to the Science of AI ***
 Association for Computational Linguistics ACL ***
 Association for Computing Machinery ACM SIGART ***

[ ] Each of the above first four lines should contain a link.
[ ] The fourth line "The AI Web Matrix..." should jump to the
"Index" at the bottom of the Web page, for several reasons:
- all four initial lines should have a link;
- it shall become clear that the Index is the Matrix
and that the Canon is just a line-by-line list
of Matrix sites favored with an asterisk rating.
[ ] The third line should perhaps highlight and link to a
section carved out as the "Memetic Campaign," telling the
world just exactly what mentifex at scn.org is up to here.
[ ] See also the "Major Changes" doc of MON.10.NOV.1997.
[ ] SUN.23NOV1997: "Ideas for Sections of Mentifex AI."
[ ] ~MON.24.NOV.1997: "Other Potential Categories"
The "Memetic Campaign" could easily and rationally go
in between the end of the diagram Tutorial and the start of
the Matrix/Index list of Web sites.
The "Memetic Campaign" could have some introductory text
and then a check-off list of (shudder!) Mentifex initiatives:
[ ] Identify Mentifex-compliant Computer Sci Depts.
[ ] Identify bureau speakers who can discuss M-AI.
[ ] Fund incentive awards for young AI researchers.
[ ] Mail out Certificates "suitable for framing."
[ ] Encourage AI guestbook communication.
[ ] Ask people to use Mentifex intellectual property
in extremely generic situations, such as samples
of artwork, coffee cup designs, etc.
[ ] Warn AI college applicants to inquire about syllabus.
[ ] Find enlightened author of major AI textbook, then:
[ ] Publicize AI textbook with Mentifex content.
