Agreed that a non-anthropomorphic view of intelligence, as you propose, is a good way to consider the matter.
If we state intelligence is natural processes, then we might also state that natural processes are intelligence (sticking with a non-anthropomorphic view of the same)!
As you suggest, we are not going to solve that meaning of it all problem on an internet forum. :)
