A primary attribute of intelligence is organization, whether it be ideas, substance, or any combination of the two.

False. "Intelligence" has an elegant formal construction, and it asserts nothing of the sort.

But while you are at it, define "organization" in something resembling strict terms i.e. something we can use as an objective metric.

"Intelligence" has an elegant formal construction . . .

Maybe it does. But when I use the word "intelligence" in the context of this discussion I mean the capacity to acquire and apply knowledge; the faculty of thought and reason. As such, intelligence may be considered as necessary for producing objects that are designed and purposeful.

You said to FC: ""Intelligence" has an elegant formal construction, ... ."

Could you recommend books or websites where I could learn about this? Thanks.
