Asa H discovers mind-body dualism
My artificial intelligence Asa H has formed a concept composed of the actions it is able to perform. This concept is, in turn, composed out of what might be termed a concept of mental action and a separate concept of physical action. The concept physical actions is composed of things like moving, turning, grasping, lifting, etc., all actions that require substantial current draws on the NXT/EV3 batteries. The concept mental actions is composed of things like extrapolation from the case base, searching through the case base, loading a data (case) file, sorting a file, etc., all actions that involve no large added current drains. (To increase its utility measures Asa prefers to take actions that do not require a large current drain.) Asa H makes this distinction between the mental and the physical.
