So we're all basically agreeing on the same thing then? As he and I agreed with each other and what you just said seems to me to be consistent with what I said.

No problem, I'm sorry if my answer felt irritated. It was not directed at you
in particuler: the field of emergence stuff is sometimes full of hype and empty
of sense, so I try to educate people and being cautious on their assumptions.
Even if emergenge is an interesting and widespread phenomenon in Nature, it is
far from obvious that it applies as is to engineering.

Sure, and this is important for the player indeed.

Not in particular. I was talking in general, for AI in games, robots, coffee
machines, whatever.

For glob2, I just wanted to stress that we can explain an organized, reasoning
hive mind (the player) even if there is no overmind building. It is
scientifically plausible to conceive such system :-)

Have a nice day,
