Experiments with Asa H upper ontologies
Both humans and Asa H can take substantial time to learn/evolve high level concepts (upper ontology). But since the high and low levels of the Asa H hierarchy are similarly selforganizing one can hope to develop the upper levels (somewhat) independent of the lower (grounding) categories. Such an upper level simulation may be considered an approximation to some more complete, more accurate, learning experiment. It would be difficult to teach Asa the concept of a magnetic field or a quantum mechanical wave function, for instance, so we might begin at a (mid) layer in the hierarchy where Asa is assumed to already have a model of these in place.
