A thing is NOT a binary expression. You need to learn a lot about mathematics and logic before uttering such falsehoods.
A thing is a physical or conceptual object and as such may or may not have a phemeral or ephemeral existence.

Maybe you should read some grammar books, you know you can get them on the Internet Archive, or even through the Pirate Bay.

verb, now a verb has another name, behavior

Not only a behaviour (which implies action or movement), but also static properties like size (large/small/light/heavy); also conceptual properties (colour, sound).
So, if instead of inventing non-standard uses for existing words and then using those pseudo definitions to extend your pseudo linguistic abilities you were to use standard definitions you may well save yourself a considerable amount of work. Then you may have more luck in convincing people that you have a more valid theory.

I have rad more gammar books than you would imagine, and none of them abuse the English language as much as you do.

Since all that a mind can do, is read, process, and write information back as behavior,

Note that Humans have gone beyond that...

This very forum is an example for example...

We have learnt how to share abstract ideas and dreams... How to stir feelings. And share 'tall stories' and falsehoods!

We have learnt (to varying degrees) what we call sympathy and empathy...



The notions expressed by objectors here, that aliens are illiterate and do not know how to reveal the intelligence of a species by using a species own words to test the intelligence of a species [patronizing insult ignored].

There's a few logical steps missing to your assumption there about "objectors"...


Also, what is intelligence?

For example, there is tremendous scope for the success of mere mimicry...

Ask your computer, tell me that it cannot process all information using a relative, 1 and a correlative, 0.

That is not my description or understanding of "binary"...



Which denotes One, and which the Many? Hint, a binary expression.

The description "Class" is usually used to describe collections of items/object that have some categorization/similarity/grouping.

For example, the many pupils being taught by a teacher in a classroom as a class in a school.



Ask your computer, tell me that it cannot process all information using a relative, 1 and a correlative, 0.

In binary computing, we do indeed use the representation of "0" (logical false) and "1" (logical true).

We also use multiple binary digits as a singular group to represent a lot more than only true/false.

Such is the richness of the imaginative use of representations...


That contrasts with that our minds that operate as a sum of overlaying patterns...

Hmm, that's not an accolade I associate with Plato, who was undoubtedly a very early philosopher.
I would look towards one of the ancient Hebrew or Babylonian scholars as a founding father, or to Dionysius Thrax, or maybe Roger Bacon, or even Chomsky (but I think they are far too late to the table, since they were around in the 20th century.)

Back in the day, Microsoft recruited beta testers, I still have original disks from those days. But it became clear, at least to some of us, that Microsoft had changed to becoming more interested in profit, than in the importance of a clients system and their data. I was one of the original beta testers for dos 6.0, Which wiped my computer clean. Microsoft did not even wait for the results of beta testers, and released it. It took me 3 days to completely reprogram my computer. Look it up, the history of dos 6.
Imagine my surprise, when I did a simple check disk to get the message, no errors found, file not found. There were no files left at all on the hard drive.
