My Life at Age Thirty-Two

In my thirty-third year of life I suddenly realized that it was not enough to design memory-channels for an artificial Mind, but that there had to be a mental superstructure coordinating the input and output from the memory channels and giving rise to the mechanisms of thought. For about two months I was despairng of my own abilities, because I knew now that there was an abstract area of the brain-mind logically orthogonal to all the concrete memory channels, but I had not the faintest clue about what must be happening in the abstract conceptual memory. Then it all came flooding out of me in a spree of six months of writing down my linguistic Theory of Mind.
