    I have a graduate degree in mathematics. Recently I was developing a function of choice to be used in an artificial intelligence with the aim being that the A.I. utilizing the algorithm pass any Turing Test for any duration of time. After, in theory, developing the function I decided that a bare bones model of the function would be useful in analyzing psychological anxiety disorders. Being 62 and having had OCD since the age of five made OCD a natural choice for me to analyze. The article I produced strictly used objective reasoning and from my perspective the objective that was reached is rather interesting. If anyone is interested in the article please send an email request to me at rb5363@alumni.albany.edu.
