At about 1:11 p.m. today on 2018-11-30 we got the following idea.
Computer: If you speak Russian, I need you.In some designated mind-module, we can trap the word "IF" and use it to assign a high $tru value to an expected input.
Human: I speak English. I do not speak Russian.
Computer: I do not need you.
Just as we operated several years ago to answer questions with "yes" or "no" by testing for an associative chain, we can test for the associative chain specified by "IF" and instead of "yes" or "no" we can assign a high $tru value to the pay-off statement following the "IF" clause. It is then easy to flush out any statement having a high truth-value, or even having the highest among a cluster or group of competing truth-values.
These ideas could even apply to negated ideas, such as, "We need you if you do NOT speak Russian."
Now, here is where it gets Singularity-like and ASI-like, as in "Artificial Super Intelligence." Whereas a typical human brain would not be able to handle a whole medley of positive and negative conditionals, an AI Mind using "IF" and $tru could probably handle dozens of conditionals concurrently, either all at once or in a sequence.
