So if a program does exactly like you do: Fill in some digit. If if later in the process fails, it reports - just like you - "Sorry, I failed to solve this problem - give me another board", then it is "logical", of the same intellectual standing as your brain.

Fair enough. I'll accept that. Trying different alternatives is not "logic" (but highly illogical Smile | :) ).

Some mental effort should appear as magic. Analyzing that kind of thinking, identifying the paths of thought that leads to those "logic" solutions sort of cheapens the "logic" and the magic of the human brain. So let's stick to the magic, that unexplainable that elevates the human brain from trivialities such as letting a computer follow the same rules as the human "logic". Let's pretend that human "logic" is something supernatural that cannot be explained. Sort of in a religious sense.

I hereby declare that I accept your right to believe that your brain's "logic" is superior to any computer realizing a similar logic, and your right to believe that your brain's "logic" in no way considers the effect of writing a digit into a square and rejecting it, the way a computer does it.
