What is intelligence?
A definition should be unambiguous, fundamental (=natural) and deterministic (=implementable):
Intelligence is a naturally occurring phenomenon, which can be described as the capability of autonomously organizing:
• Basic intelligence: the capability of autonomously avoiding chaos, creating order or restoring order;
• Creative intelligence: the capability of autonomously creating or improving a beautiful piece of work or a functional system;
• Semantic intelligence: the capability of autonomously understanding one another's meaning or intention;
• Self-intelligence (consciousness, self-esteem): the capability of autonomously recognizing one's own influence on the environment.
The capability of autonomously organizing explained in more detail:
• Associating (or combining) of individual or separate objects, with the aim of achieving a goal that can not be achieved by either of those objects separately;
• Discriminating (or differentiating) compound or intertwined objects, with the aim to clarify the situation, by putting them in their own context;
• Learning from mistakes: Using knowledge and experience to differentiate successes from mistakes;
• Planning future actions to achieve a goal;
• Predicting possible consequences of those planned actions.
