Restoring JavaScript variable-comments and removing obsolete variables.

Since we assume that many people have made copies of the JavaScript Artificial Intelligence (JSAI) in order to study it, today we carefully make some pressing changes and for each change we provide an explanation by way of justification. First we delete some previously commented-out code-lines which were left in the open-source AI codebase for the sake of continuity, that is, to show that the particular lines of code were on the way out. Thus we remove the commented-out variable "kbyn" from 30jun2011.

Next from the obsolete 20mar07A version of the JSAI we restore comments for some variables and we remove some obsolete variables. We add a link to Consciousness above the Control Panel.

Anyone finding a bug in the AI software may subscribe to the mail-list agi@listbox.com for Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) and report bugs to the AGI community or engage in archived AGI discussion. There is no bug-bounty, other than the glory of the deed.

Moving the JavaScript AI towards Artificial Consciousness

Two important goals for the AI Mind in JavaScript are the already demonstrated Natural Language Understanding (NLU) and the not-yet-proven Artificial Consciousness. Before we work explicitly on consciousness, we remove the clutter of some obsolete tutorial display code from the MainLoop and elsewhere, so that the program as a whole may be easier to understand and work with.

We have a chance here to demonstrate an entity aware of itself and of some other entity such as a human user conversing with the AI. If we start claiming that our JSAI has consciousness, Netizens will test the AI in various ways, such as asking it a lot of questions. Typical questions to test consciousness would be "who are you" and "who am i". The interrogative pronoun "who" sets the qucon flag to a positive value of one so that the SpreadAct module may activate the necessary concepts for a proper response. We need a way to make the AI concentrate on the subject of any who-query, so that the AI will give evidence of consciousness simply by answering the question.

When we enter "god is person" and then we ask, "who is god", the AI answers "GOD AM A PERSON" -- which sounds wrong but which only requires an improvement in finding the correct form "IS" for the verb "BE".
