As long as scientists fail to define intelligence in a natural way, the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and knowledge technology is engineering (specific solutions to specific problems) rather than a science (generic solutions).
Scientists made a fundamental mistake 60 years ago:
Intelligence and language are natural phenomena. Natural phenomena obey laws of nature. And laws of nature are investigated using (basic or) fundamental science. However, the field of AI and knowledge technology is researched using (behavioral or) cognitive science.
A consequence of this fundamental mistake:
• AI is programmed intelligence rather than an artificial implementation of natural intelligence;
• Knowledge technology is based on applying artificial structures (semantic techniques) and smart algorithms (Computational Linguistics) to keywords (mainly nouns and proper nouns). However, the other types are ignored, while they provide our brain with the logical structure of the sentence. By using only keywords – and ignoring the natural structure of a sentence – the field of knowledge technology got stuck with “bags of keywords” and unstructured texts.
I am elevating this field from engineering (using artificial structures) to a science (using natural structures embedded in grammar):
• I have defined intelligence in a natural way;
• I have discovered a relationship between natural intelligence and natural language;
• By implementing these Natural Laws of Intelligence embedded in Grammar in software, I am developing the world's only self-organizing knowledge technology;
• And I defy anyone to beat the simplest results of my natural language reasoner in a generic way.

Despite almost 160 years of research, the theory of evolution still hasn't been supported by concrete evidence regarding to the origin of intelligence and language. Let alone, to the integration of both. According to the biblical world view, God has created laws of nature, including laws of intelligence. Thinknowlogy is the world's only self-organizing knowledge technology. Being based on the Natural Laws of Intelligence embedded in Grammar, only Thinknowlogy implements the natural meaning (intelligent function) of words like definite article “the”, conjunction “or”, possessive verb “has/have” and past tense verbs “was/were” and “had”.
These Natural 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 conflicts and some cases of semantic ambiguity;
• Multilingualism, proving: Natural languages have one common origin.
