To sum up your post and signature (I'm going to get a lot of milage out of it), I'm going to defer to one of my favorite George Bernard Shaw quotes.

"The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it."
        George Bernard Shaw

    Your quote had such a profound effect on me that it occurred to me that our basic human condition is so primitive that even after 20 years of intellectual "incubation" (quality of incubation can be debated), AFTER ALL THAT, you still wonder if some of the output is sentient or just merely more "sentient" than an advanced chatter bot that's been inundated with knowledge for 20 years.

    I can't wait until we're replaced by the machines.

All the simple programs have been written.
