"... program was established at Princeton University in 1979 by Robert G. Jahn, then Dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science, to pursue rigorous scientific study of the interaction of human consciousness with sensitive physical devices, systems, and processes common to contemporary engineering practice. Since that time, an interdisciplinary staff of engineers, physicists, psychologists, and humanists has been conducting a comprehensive agenda of experiments and developing complementary theoretical models to enable better understanding of the role of consciousness in the establishment of physical reality."

"Alan Turing conclusively proved is that it is impossible to construct a halt analyzer that always returns a correct result back to the Turing Machine being analyzed. Since returning the result back to the Turing Machine being analyzed is not the only way to construct a halt analyzer, his proof did not show that constructing a halt analyzer that works correctly for each and every element of the universal set of Turing Machines is impossible."

"AI4U: Mind-1.1 Programer's Manual' has the following positive and negative points. + It describes the rapidly evolving AI Minds on the Web. - It quickly becomes obsolete as the AI hyper-evolves. + On-demand publishing (ODP) makes for quick updates. - The Mentifex project is considered oddball on the 'Net. + You've got the first book about the first real AI Mind. - There are other, better, more authoritative AI textbooks. + AI4U makes a good supplement for actually coding AI. - Artificial intelligence is too hard to understand. + AI4U describes the AI while it is still easy to learn. - 'I would rather build robots than study AI programming.' + If you want to build a smart robot, then AI4U is for you. - 'I'm only a high school student/teacher; what's the use?' + This book will challenge even the most gifted student. - 'I am not a programmer and so I can't code AI.' + AI4U teaches you how to operate an AI, not just code it. - 'I just want to do Web design, not artificial intelligence.' + AI4U provides an AI that you may install on your website. - 'I am more interested in neuroscience and/or psychology.' + AI4U teaches a theory of how the brain works psychologically."
