I have discovered what natural intelligence is

Thinknowlogy is the world's most advanced reasoner. Using the natural logic (natural intelligence) of language, it is able to reason autonomously in readable sentences with a limited grammar.

First, the basics of natural language:

It is well known that grammar provides structure to sentences. However, scientists are ignorant of the natural logic of language, which provides a logical structure to sentences (=meaning).

Lacking this crucial knowledge, scientists took a top-down approach, in which rich and meaningful sentences are degraded to “bags of keywords”. Due to this degradation process, meaning gets lost, by which the current knowledge technology is unable to grasp the deeper meaning expressed by humans. I took a bottom-up approach, which is grammar-based instead of keyword-based. A bottom-up approach – or fundamental approach – means that I have to build a foundation first, brick by brick. That takes a lot of time and effort, by which it will take decades before my fundamental approach is applicable to everyday life.

I am using fundamental science instead of cognitive science:

• Autonomous reasoning requires both intelligence and language;
• Intelligence and language are natural phenomena;
• Natural phenomena obey laws of nature;
• Laws of nature (and logic) are investigated using fundamental science / basic research.

Using fundamental science, I gained knowledge and experience that no one else has

I am the only one in the world who has defined intelligence as a set of natural laws. Implemented in open source software, my automated reasoner has results that scientists can't deliver. So, I defy anyone to beat the simplest results of my reasoner in a generic way: from natural language, through algorithms, back to natural language.

The Laws of Intelligence embedded in Grammar are demonstrated by:

Programming in natural language;
Reasoning in natural language:
      • drawing conclusions (more advanced than scientific solutions),
      • making assumptions (with self-adjusting level of uncertainty),
      • asking questions (about gaps in the knowledge),
      • detecting confirmations, conflicts and some cases of semantic ambiguity,
      • displaying of justification reports for the self-generated knowledge;
Multilingualism, proving: Natural languages have one common origin.

The invalidation of the theory of evolution as the explanation for the origin of intelligence, language and laws of nature:

• Despite exhaustive research, the theory of evolution still hasn't provided a satisfactory explanation for the origin of intelligence, language and laws of nature. Let alone, how they are related;
• According to the biblical world view, God has created laws of nature – including laws of intelligence – to make his creation run like clockwork. Being based on Natural Laws of Intelligence embedded in Grammar, only Thinknowlogy implements the intelligent function of words like definite article “the”, conjunction “or”, possessive verb “has/have” and past tense verbs “was/were” and “had”. Other Controlled Natural Language (CNL) reasoners are limited to sentences with verb “is/are” in the present tense. They don't accept the words mentioned above.

God has created laws of nature to make his creation run like clockwork. It includes: Natural Laws of Intelligence embedded in Grammar. Thinknowlogy implements these natural laws of intelligence in software.
