 GEDANKEN [from Einstein's term "gedanken-experimenten",
       such as the standard proof that E=mc^2] adj. An AI project which is
       written up in grand detail without ever being implemented to any great
       extent. Usually perpetrated by people who aren't very good hackers or
       find programming distasteful or are just in a hurry. A gedanken thesis
       is usually marked by an obvious lack of intuition about what is
       programmable and what is not and about what does and does not
       constitute a clear specification of a program-related concept such as
       an algorithm.
