___ Step 008 of DIY AI:  Create the Main Program Loop MIND.  Just
make a loop with some dummy steps and some dummy messages - these
"stubs" can be filled in later with active, mentificent code that
actually constitutes the artificial mind.  Try to code the follow-
ing two "Hello, world!" statements for the user to interact with:

"Now I am thinking. (Press a key)"

"Now I am listening. (Press a key)"

|                |             ( listening )---|---\_______/    |
|                |              \_________/    |                |

Congratulations!  In the first AI "Hello" with an IQ of zero, you
have focused your own mind on the robot mind that you are shaping.
You the creator have begun to interact with the evolving creature.
You the programmer will make a mind that reproduces your own mind.
