APPENDIX. Selected Statements From CE8's Protocol(Reads from problem statement)
(Reads from problem statement)
|1. ||O.K. Let's list down resources.|
|2. ||And the resources are water.|
|3. ||And so the attributes of this resource are going to be species--that's water.|
|4. ||Another attribute of this is amount available. And the amount available
from this spring is infinite, according to this statement.|
|5. ||And another attribute of the spring is its location.|
(Reads from problem statement and draws diagram)
|1. ||So another resource is three acres . . . Well, the resource is land; let me call it
|2. ||Its amount is three acres; its location two miles from spring.|
|1. ||So the resource is Land B.|
(Considers possible uses of aluminum pipe; recaps resources and operators)
|1. ||So, it looks like the goal here--let's write down a goal--is to adequately feed
the Swift population, Swift colony.|
|2. ||O.K., now operators, we need operators. We have a difference here.|
|3. ||O.K., we have some operators. And one is called PRODUCE CORN.|
|4. ||The constraints on PRODUCE CORN are: We need land, we need water, we
need sun, and we need seed corn, and we need oxygen. O.K. And various
kinds of nutrients, which I will put in the land.|
|5. ||Go back to my resource list and add oxygen. Amount available infinite, in
essence, here for this thing, I'll say--"for a lifetime."|
|6. ||And at the landing site I have the oxygen supply, and the pipe.|
|7. ||O.K. Another resource--aluminum pipe.|
|1. ||O.K., so we have one called PRODUCE CORN, and one called MOVE
|2. ||And another operator called MOVE OXYGEN.|
|3. ||Because that's not really mentioned in great detail how we're going to get
the oxygen over there.|
|4. ||Besides, we're going to have problems here. We have an oxygen supply, but
if we let the oxygen out into the air, we've got problems, because it'll just
diffuse out away from the plants, and we won't be able to grow things.|
|5. ||The oxygen's going to have to be held in some container or some device for
insuring adequate contacting of the oxygen with the corn.|
|6. ||So another constraint relative to the corn is that the oxygen and water must
contact for a given period of time in order for the chemical reactions to take
