Searle is instructed to push back through the slot the Chinese script with which the scripts coming in through the slot are correlated according to the rules.
Searle identifies the scripts coming in and going out on the basis of their shapes alone. He does not speak Chinese, he does not understand them
The scripts going in are called ‘the questions’, the scripts coming out are ‘the answers’, and the rules that Searle follows is ‘the program’.
Suppose also that the set of rules, the program is so good and Searle gets so good at following it that Searle’s answers are indistinguishable from those of a native Chinese speaker.
