ordo30may2KA -- sequence of ratiocination in Amiga Mind.Forth --
http://www.geocities.com/mentifex/mind4th.html -- Wintel version.

#38-ALIFE calls #4-PSI-CLEAR immediately prior to #20-SENSORIUM,
so that all `psi' from current `t' backwards are set to zero.

#20-SENSORIUM orchestrates input of up to three words.
  If a new word is entered,
  #14-NEWCONCEPT assigns to it an activation of about ____ 30.

  If an old word is entered,
  #13-OLDCONCEPT assigns to it an activation of about ____ 30 and
  calls #10-ACTIVATE to reactivate old nodes of the same concept.
    Then #10 ACTIVATE calls #9-SPREADACT.
    #9-SPREADACT transfers `bulge' to `pre' and `seq'.

#38-ALIFE calls #35-THINK (TRANSFORMATION) to generate a sentence.

#35-THINK forces a verb to become active, by calling
  #10-ACTIVATE (which further invokes SPREADACT) and
  #34-DISCRIMINATE (which finds the most active concept).

#35-THINK calls the #33-ENGLISH module to think a thought,
which re-enters the mind word-by-word into #20-SENSORIUM.

#38-ALIFE again calls #4-PSI-CLEAR to repeat the above process.

Tues.30.May.2000 Usenet note:  Mind.Forth PD AI is on the home
stretch of becoming an AI suitable for installation on robots.

The above "ordo cogitandi" document is being used to fine-tune
the process of `spreading activation' so that Mind.Forth will
generate only logically true statements and not talk nonsense.
The document is being posted here as a progress report and as
in invitation to be present in Cyberspace at the dawn of AI.

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