3.2. (Natural Laws of) Intelligence embedded in Grammar

Logical clues that are embedded in grammar, provide information to our brain how to structure / organize the gained knowledge. These clues include specific words for grouping, separating and archiving (see definition of natural intelligence). By using these clues provided by grammar – or Natural Laws of Intelligence embedded in Grammar – we are able to implement a self-organizing (=intelligent) knowledge technology, similar to the way nature works in the language center of our brain:

• Conjunction “and” has the intelligent function in language to group knowledge;
• Conjunction “or” has the intelligent (Exclusive OR) function in language to separate knowledge;
• An definite article (in English: “the”) has the intelligent function in language to archive knowledge;
• An indefinite article (in English: “a”) defines a structure, which is already known for a few centuries;
• Basic verb “am/is/are” defines present tense basic logic, which is already known for a few centuries;
• Basic verb “was/were” defines past tense basic logic;
• Possessive verb “has/have” defines present tense direct and indirect possessive logic;
• Possessive verb “had” defines past tense direct and indirect possessive logic.

Besides that, grammar also provides logical reasoning constructions, as described from paragraph 2.3.1 Specification Substitution Conclusions of the Design document.

These Natural Laws of Intelligence embedded in Grammar drive a set of structuring algorithms 6 in my system, in order to independently group, separate and archive knowledge in its knowledge base.

So, the basics of natural language: Grammar provides the general structure of separate words, by which the words form a sentence. And the laws of intelligence – that are embedded in grammar – provide the logical structure of separate words and separate sentences, by which the words and sentences make sense.

Scientists fail to define intelligence as a set of natural laws. Therefore, scientists fail to add natural intelligence to chatbots, virtual assistants and robots ('bots' for short). As a consequence, bots are lacking natural intelligence: Either they are limited to programmed dialogues, or the sentences they produce don't make sense.
