I am very interested in all of the philosophical details required to
create a fully functional human mind using software.

The key starting point of this process is to overturn the Tarski
Undefinability theorem so that a working truth predicate can be defined.

When this is done then Davidson's truth conditional semantics can be
anchored. Until then all AI research is "anchored" in shifting sands.

I.e.: "To say that he used a name as a writing pseudonym is to say some writing of a substantial bulk by him appeared

What idiot you doesn't understand is, under 'normal contexts', your supposed hip flip is precisely *irrelevant*.
According to US law people simply "wrote what they wrote", under their own name or a pseudonym.

Defining "true" is the essence of the philosophical research over the
last 25 years. There are two different kinds of true:

(a) Analytically true on the basis of the existence of purely semantic
connections to a truth maker.

(b) Empirically true (not the focus of my research) yet requires sense
data from the sense organs in addition to semantic connections to a
truth maker.

So... the original message commented upon (in another newsgroup, where the conversation
would be somewhat sensible) makes a tremendous number of authorship claims of this
kind in a fairly dubious register. "Explaining it away" with aren't-I-smart-oh-wait-I'm-real
roundabout tricks is obviously just a scam, considering. "I knew that." Maybe not like it is...
