Koch Island Iterations 

Figure 2. Two Koch Island curve L-system fractals with one (left) and four iterative steps. More iterative steps result in more richness.

Intelligence can be defined as a measure of context size; how large amount of various stimuli we take into an account and process prior an action emerges. In other words, it is about how many mental plates we manage to juggle in the air concurrently.

Like is the case with an L-system fractal and other iterative processes, simple rules generate complex behaviour. Feedback mechanism is important for achieving complexity and the richness of the form, for raising rich conceptual thinking (e.g. language). Electromagnetic waves feeding and changing each other creates thought. As a simplified example, the brain of an ant utilizes less iterative steps than the brain of a human being.
