- Also known as COGNITIVE
The cognitive slot contains biological patterns that have a potential for creating something of intellectual value. This potential is determined empirically. All humans, unless markedly deprived of this ability, are entitled to membership of this slot. It should be noted that even though a human is, at least by default, a cognitive pattern, a human may engage in work that has practically no potential for producing intellectual value. This doesn't mean the human doing the work is not a cognitive pattern. The worker is separate from the work he is doing.
