Achieve proportionate transfers of activation of concepts.

Mind.Forth implementation:  Uses variable "bulge" passed from
the ACTIVATE module to the SPREADACT module.

[ ]
Let the thoughts of the AI itself do "reentry" at a lower level
of activation than user input obtains.  This guideline is based
on the idea that any thought generated as one link in a chain of
thought must leave a vestigial trace of itself weak enough to let
a dominant topic maintain its hold on the attention of the mind,
but strong enough that the chain does not die out and render the
AI "brain dead."

Mind.Forth implementation:  Use the on-or-off attention flag "attn"
to differentiate between high activation-levels decreed during human
input and low activation-levels imposed during reentry of AI ideas.

Forth is the lingua franca of AI, embedded NC and robotics.
