2.1. Natural intelligence

In order to contribute to science, intelligence need to be defined in a unifying, fundamental (=natural) and deterministic 6 (=implementable) way:

Natural intelligence is the natural ability to organize independently.

It is the extent to which one is able to independently:
group what belongs together;
separate what doesn't belong together;
archive what is no longer relevant;
plan future actions;
foresee the consequences that the planned actions will have;
learn from mistakes.

Assuming that natural language is an intelligent system, predictions can be made on the intelligence that will be found in language:
1. Natural language will have self-organizing abilities;
2. In expressing knowledge, our brain adds clues to the knowledge that we convey;
3. In receiving knowledge, our brain will use those clues in order to organize the received knowledge.

In all languages, there will be specific words – or word constructions – for:
grouping knowledge that belongs together;
separating knowledge that doesn't belong together;
archiving knowledge that is no longer relevant;
planning future actions;
foreseeing the consequences that the planned actions will have;
learning from mistakes.

Natural intelligence applied to natural language is called: natural meaning.

6 deterministic: “the doctrine that all facts and events exemplify natural laws”.
