      The human eye takes pictures at approximately 25shots/second. If
      there is an algorithm that can be perfected to the point where the
      robot will be able to recognize a pencil in different background _A_,
      _B_, _C_, _D_ ....etcetera; then, why can't the robot "facture" a
      scene comprising of a moving target into multiple "still" or stagnant
      pictures?....The reverse of what moviegoers sees at the cinema--slow
      the scene down then execute the algorithm on it. In such a case, we
      won't have to worry much about developing special algorithms for
      detecting if the target is moving or not. Does this make any sense?

      (II)On _depth perception_, i hypothesize two approaches: The robot
      calculate the time differential of the light bouncing back from each
      isolated target in its visual field--back into its optic sensors,
      from that the robot can estimate distances. (b), From physics, the
      lens formula points out the location or how far an _image_ is formed
      from the lense, given the center of curvature and the distance of the
      viewed _object_. Practically if one knows how far an _image_ is
      formed from the mirror one can use the lense equation to determine
      the distance of the _object_.(Clause:How do you know the
      distance/position of the image beforehand?). Does this make any sense?

      X + Y = Z is equivalent to Z - Y = X. Of course!!!
      In my view, If a robot is ordered to find an exit out of a room; and
      the robot circles about looking for a door or opening and happens to
      find none--the room is walled completely. How does the robot
      improvise on its own? E.g. Break down a wall. This kind of adaptive
      behaviour is what i think signifies intelligence--creativity.
      For the robot to accomplish this, the robot has to go through these
      (a)Determine that by "get out of the room" it means getting from
      point _A_ (which is the inside of the room) to point B(which is the
      out of the walled enclosure).
      (b)Determine that in order to get from _A_ to _B_ it(robot) needs to
      transverse a sectional area not occupied by the wall.
      (c) Determined that there is no such area.

      [From this, can the robot then make the deduction that the only way
      to get from _A_ to _B_ is for a sectional removal of the wall?, that
      is, Z - Y = X, where Y can be any point in the domain(Z) of
      approximately 6 feet in width.?]

      (d)[Can the robot then initiate a search into its memory files to
      isolate data correlating with slicing, cutting, sectioning, etcetera--
      things that will aid in getting rid of the wall?]

      I KNOW ALL THIS TO BE VERY CRUDE, any ideas? Does this make any sense?

      [Common sense a given population is merely the notion or idea that
      seems to have the most weight or gravity in opinion polls of a given
      population. Feed this data into the robot, i will wager the robot
      will have common sense!]
