Actually, I've lately been wondering whether thoughts really need to be
implemented as conceptual structures, or if that's just a human thing
derived from the coevolution of consciousness and communication. If the
latter, it won't be easy to make the AI's stream of consciousness

Good point about humans possibly learning to talk in sentences before
learning to talk in words...
