I'm going to attack you by questions again :-)

What are 'range' and 'complexity'? Is there a specific architecture of
'levels'? Why should higher-level concepts be multidimensional?

What is the dynamics of system's operation in time? Is inference
feed-forward and 'instantaneous', measuring by external clock? Can
capture time series?

By 'what prediction is for?' I mean connection to action. How does
prediction of inputs or features of inputs translate into action? If
this prediction activity doesn't lead to any result, it may as well be
