1."It's a good guess that the actual majority of human cognition consists of cache lookups.

This thought does tend to go through my mind at certain times."

A funny joke...as if the idea expressed in the first sentence may itself have been cached.

2."Raised by silent robots" is a catchy phrase. Did you make it up?

3. "As I have pointed out elsewhere, this is simply false as probability theory."

I find this phrasing misleading. "False as X" can mean the same thing "as false as X."
