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 Specificatie-substitutie conclusies van het Ontwerp 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.
