    This paper employs a survey methodology to point at notions surrounding “the reflexive” and “reciprocity” drawn from the history of Cybernetics as it falls in relation to current “Neosentient” research. Seaman and O. E. Rössler have been involved in a decade long discussion exploring the future of artificial intelligence and its relation to robotics. Seaman coined the term Neosentience arising out of this ongoing “conversation” with Rössler which is articulated in their book – Neosentience | The Benevolence Engine (Seaman & Rössler, 2011). The book is a non-linear compendium of observations. When we abstract thought potentials in the human and seek to re-embody them within a robotic system in a functional manner that reflects the original bio-functionality of the human, we are thus elucidating the abstraction of abstraction.
