"Prediction doesn't explain imagination, but imagination is necessary for prediction. It's necessary to consider different possibilities to find out what would happen. "

That leads me to think that your program is imaginative. If it is not then where does the imagination come in?

If your program does not consider all the possibilities- that is, if they are input by you, then I would suppose that you are providing the consciousness you ascribe to your program.

I would prefer to think that your program provides all the possibilities.

Rather than trying to be critical of your program, I am just trying to find out how it works.
