Testimony: I don't have this wisdom of myself

Around the age of 8 to 10, God asked me if I wanted to become rich or wise. I chose wisdom, because I liked the stories about the wisdom of King Solomon. (It wasn't a catch-question: If I had chosen wealth, I had to give everything away, like I give away the results of my wisdom now.)

A few years later, around the age of 12 to 14, I offered my life to God (as in giving up my own life and desires, and dedicating my life to Him). Nothing special happened after that. I became just another Software Tester. I am talented in software testing, but my talent has its limits. I am not a genius.

A few years ago, God gave me the assignment to prove the theory of evolution wrong, which I have accepted. As promised, God provides wisdom to me as long as I work on this project. If I use the given wisdom for my own good, it will be taken from me. And I was explicitly ordered: “Give everything away. Keep nothing behind”.

While I was criticizing the current approach to AI and knowledge technology on LinkedIn for not having a (natural) foundation, nor a (natural) definition of intelligence, someone asked me what definition I used. Then I had to admit to myself that I didn't have a definition of intelligence either. I prayed and ask for an answer: Ten minutes later, I was able to write down a unifying, fundamental (=natural) and deterministic (=implementable) definition of intelligence provided by God. Later I also discovered how this definition is related to language, through (Natural Laws of) Intelligence embedded in Grammar.
