it is important to know _not_ where the “line is drawn” but rather how the spectrum is defined.

Oh, it’s not a matter of validation or invalidation.
It’s the exacting requirements of the OP.
Personally, I _believe_ Intelligence is too narrowly defined at present and _does_ include many things that might not traditionally be considered Intelligence, including some forms we might not currently consider Life.
That being said, when gauging the line between Intelligence and Non-Intelligence, exacting specifications don’t seem to be possible, but rather a spectrum of sorts.
A digital clone of my brain will not be me unless all inputs and outputs are ALSO digitally recreated to exacting specifications.

[and of course the moment it begins processing, it ceases being ‘me’. What we’re inputting and outputting will necessarily be different simply by being in two different places, same as human twins. Similar, but not same.

A single change doesn’t invalidate sameness, but it *does* mean we’re no longer talking about exact anymore but something different and I believe it is important to know _not_ where the “line is drawn” but rather how the spectrum is defined.
