    I’m not going to play games with you. If you don’t understand the very definitions you cite, then I’ve nothing more to say to you except: you are wrong.

    But they didn’t know it.

    They pretty obviously thought that they would get some kind of benefit that would outweigh any cost (if they even thought about the prospect of personal cost).

    Surprisingly (to me, anyway) many people don’t really have a good concept of the difference between before and after a change, particularly if the change is death. I’ve met too many people who spoke of getting even for some slight “even if it kills me. I’d do it just to gloat afterwards.” Not too well balanced, there.

    Elegant test. It’s comparable to the one that demo’d self-awareness in rats: the rats had to decide whether they were confident enough about the similarity of 2 musical tones to go for the large, tasty reward, but getting nothing if they were wrong, or pass on it and take the small but unconditional reward instead. To make the choice in a non-random way, which they did, they had to be aware of themselves as the agents of the outcome.

    It would be larger than Arlington because fewer than 1/3 of those who die in or because of war gets buried at Arlington.

    In what way are neural nets not “rules-based”?
