What is Intelligence?

I think the more important question is whether we are talking about the existence of intelligence in an organism, or measuring the level of intelligence in an organism.

Intelligence in the first sense is self-awareness, it is the knowledge that one exists, it is thinking about thinking (introspection).

For the second, pattern recognition, spatial awareness and other such things come into it.
