Q. What would be a typical test of Mentifex AI?
A. Suppose we tell the
Perl AI two things:
Suppose we then ask the AI:
John has a house
John has a car
We tried it just now and the ghost292.pl gave us the following output:

Q. What was Mentifex-bashing?
Q. In May of 2019, why was Mentifex afraid that the USA would attack Iran?
A. With non-essential personnel being sent home from the American Embassy in Iraq, Mentifex was terrified that the Trump regime would launch aerial attacks on Iran from American aircraft carriers, and that immediately Iran would retaliate with sleeper agents in America setting off nuclear suitcase bombs, poisoning American air and drinking water, and engaging in germ warfare with deadly superbugs, influenzas and incurable diseases. Detroit will probably survive, but Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City could easily be destroyed by the detonation of nuclear suitcase weapons purchased from former Soviet republics when Iran was flush with oil money. Millions of Americans will die for Trump, any surviving American government will declare endless Martial Law, and Americans who protest will be gunned down like the Chinese victims at Tiananmen Square.
Q. Was Mentifex on Twitter?
Q. Why did Mentifex code his main, concept-based artificial intelligence in
Perl, a moribund language being replaced Web-wide with Python?
A. Perl was chosen mainly for the sake of Unicode -- "a computing industry standard for the consistent encoding, representation, and handling of text expressed in most of the world's writing systems." Thanks to Unicode, Mentifex was able to release the original Perlmind which could think in both English and Russian, and which Mentifex was naively offering as a free gift to the ungrateful Perl community, who, instead of greeting the newcomer Mentifex with hospitality and brogrammer brotherhood, and with gladness that Mentifex was putting so much energy into possibly a revival of moribund Perl, au contraire, mon frere turned savagely against Mentifex and vilified him with vile epithets that said more about the disreputable characters infesting the Perl subReddit than about hard-working, self-sacrificing Mentifex. Not thinking for themselves but, in the manner of bound-for-prison Trump supporters, accepting and perpetuating old aspersions against Mentifex, the guardians of Perl tried to keep curious Perl coders from going down the "rabbit hole" of Mentifex artificial intelligence, deleting and denigrating the humble contributions that Mentifex was trying to share with the Perl community. With his childlike sense of trust and wonder, Mentifex was hoping to make Perl the epicenter of true, concept-based AI with Natural Language Understanding (NLU) and to create glamorous new AI jobs for expert Perl programmers. Mentifex, before he was deleted, banned and practically burned at the stake, was imagining Fortune 500 companies hiring fifty Perl programmers to each work on one of the fifty AI mind-modules in Perl. Mentifex envisioned every nation on Earth adopting Perl with Unicode for artificial intelligence in their own national language. Mentifex anticipated governments rushing into Perl artificial intelligence to keep up with other nations in the AI arms-race towards a Technological Singularity. But if the so-called Perl community does not want Mentifex, Mentifex must shake the dust from his shoes and wander the Web in search of a friendly community more accepting of new ideas.

6. Future time-line
Q. What is the likely future time-line of Mentifex AI?
Stage Two is a scenario where entities other than the originator Mentifex latch onto one of the AI Minds and fork its further development into their own branch of AI evolution. These forking entities with their "Aw, fork!" attitude may be individuals working artistically in a garret or dweebishly and nerdily in a basement, coding AI day after day into the night and into the history books. Imagine a community of such people, sharing tidbits and brag-bits like the otaku zoku of Japan, boasting about some new feature that they add to their AI, or some form of robot embodiment, or their venture into quantum computer AI coding or biomass neuronal architecture. Not too likely, perhaps, but consider the other entities who create AI not in garrets or basements but in high school or university laboratories, or in corporate workspaces, or in government facilities.
A corporate IT (information technology) department could establish an AI bunker apart from all other corporate functions and staff it with an initial team of department head, software development staff, AI safety oversight committee, and robotic embodiment personnel. The race is on. No one can predict here whether such AI efforts will remain open-source like the original AI Minds, or be released publicly, or be described in scholarly papers at public conventions. But all such corporate AI efforts will be subject to the same law of evolution: Survival of the Fittest.
Stage Three is a Technological Singularity which by its very definition defies description.
7. Self-modifying code for AI-Go-FOOM!
Q. How can we make a mentifex-class AI that replicates and enhances itself?
A. Certainly with the ghost.pl AI in Perl, and possibly also with MindForth, especially in Perl it is easy to write code that will read in its own program as a mind1.pl file, insert any new words or new ideas into the MindBoot sequence, write the expanded AI as a mind2.pl file, schedule the mind1.pl to die soon, and start the mind2.pl running as an enhanced AI ready to replicate itself and enhance itself even more.
