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".
