Empathy Emergence - A General Theory of Intelligence

This book begins from the beginnings of the universe and explains how general intelligence becomes emergent.  A general theory of intelligence is proposed that is based on universal principles of information modularity.  A roadmap for how to achieve Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is revealed.   

THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS - EARLY ACCESS

Early release versions of the entire book are now available at Gumroad. I will continue to update the book and you will be entitled to the final version.  Note that the most updated content are to be found in the individual PDF files.
