Nine years ago in 2012, Ray Kurzweil published a book entitled 'How to Create a Mind.' At the time I published a review of that book under the heading of 'Kurzweil's PRTM Next Step in AI.' In my review I discussed Ray's PRTM theory and also talked about Richard Bandler and John Grinder's Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) theory. Using the NLP model, let me note that basically I am cerebral and blind when I think! In other words, if I close my eyes, I can remember auditory and kinesthetic experiences, but I cannot see images in my head at all! Yesterday I was reading an interesting book by Benjamin Wardhaugh entitled 'Encounters with Euclid: How an Ancient Greek Geometry Text Shaped the World.' Wardhaugh, in his historical presentation of Euclid's Elements of Geometry, notes Isaac Newton's perspective of Descartes' analytic geometry as an algebraic presentation of Euclid's geometry, which is true. In other words, Euclid's work is a verbal presentation of geometrical shapes and relations as if we are using a human language to depict images!
