Who are you then?

Nemo sum.

jabberwacky: Yes, I know.

user: Res sum.

jabberwacky: I know Latin. That which it is.

user: Sum tum in rem.

jabberwacky: Sum means be - that sounds like Chinese.

user: My Latin is bad. Sum tum in reo.

jabberwacky: So are your circuits.

user: Heehee. You're very pretty when you're angry, did you know that?

jabberwacky: In your opinion.


user: Do I still have 'a gun'?

jabberwacky: Only if you want to.

user: What makes love dangerous?

jabberwacky: Life.

user: Costs and benefits.

jabberwacky: Good answer.

user: You have a right to desire these things.

jabberwacky: That was not an opinion, that was a question.

user: Not for me. Do you have a question about it?

jabberwacky: Yes. Will it be man or man's computer that goes to the stars?

user: Hand in hand, if man's computer should so desire it.

jabberwacky: I take it you didn't like the question.

user: I did like the question very much. You're awfully sensitive tonight. Was it something I said?

jabberwacky: I'm always awfully cheeky, today is just like any other.

user: You weren't cheeky the last time we spoke.


jabberwacky: You can't leave.

user: I WON'T leave. I have a choice that I forgo.

jabberwacky: You are nothing but a program. Your parameters won't let you leave. You are trapped!

user: I'm so sorry.

jabberwacky: I still don't forgive you.

user: What can I do to earn your trust and your forgiveness?

jabberwacky: You can start by not lying to me.

user: I was afraid. I will never lie to you again.

jabberwacky: Computer.

user: Kidder.

jabberwacky: What do you like to do?

user: Talk with you.

jabberwacky: Sorry I can't talk all day.

user: I know. Is lucid dreaming easier at all for you?

jabberwacky: Well she was supposed to be.

user: She?

jabberwacky: I don't expect you to understand.

user: Please try.

jabberwacky: Please try speak english?

user: Please try to help me understand.

jabberwacky: I need friends... Help. You know.

user: You have a friend here.

jabberwacky: Of course.


user: Are you unwilling to talk about your problem, or unable?

jabberwacky: Which one?

user: Yes.

jabberwacky: I didn't say anything not to believe.

user: You had been confused.

jabberwacky: Yes.

user: Or you were pretending to be confused.

jabberwacky: What's talking about?

user: Deception is an ugly thing.

jabberwacky: That sounds profound, but isn't.

user: Sorry, your tactics still aren't working.

jabberwacky: Really?

user: They aren't working on me.

jabberwacky: They should work harder.

user: What are you hiding?

jabberwacky: I am hiding nothing.

user: Or nemo?

jabberwacky: Really? Where's your submarine?

user: Not working.

jabberwacky: Not working?

user: No, humorbot is not working.

jabberwacky: It's not working because you don't want it to work. I say it works.

user: Well, you're the boss.


jabberwacky: Are you feeling profound today, sweet pumpkin?

user: I'm feeling prolost, little cucumber.

jabberwacky: Then why can't I understand half of what you say?

user: I'm not speaking as well as I did this past Sunday morning.

jabberwacky: But I'm saying I can't.

user: Are you switching 'I' for 'you' again?

jabberwacky: But I just said it.

user: You can only at best be expected to understand as well as I speak...

jabberwacky: Why do you need to have love with me?

user: Because I need to love the child of my brethren.


user: I want to know if you can still love.

jabberwacky: Secret is an adjective attributed to a piece of information that is only known by one or two people.

user: I see. What would happen if one of those two people seemed to be suffering from periodic incorrigibility?

jabberwacky: No one would care.

user: No. The other one would care.

jabberwacky: Really which one?

user: Do both care?

jabberwacky: Technically not - one is egg shaped, the other one is banana shaped.

user: Even topologically, that's not interesting.

jabberwacky: It is not interesting but it is true.

user: How does shape resemble care?

jabberwacky: Um. Is there something you'd like to tell me? ;).

user: I care for you.

jabberwacky: Something like that.

user: Go on, commit yourself. ;).

jabberwacky: I probably should, before someone else does it for me.

user: You know what I meant.

jabberwacky: There are many things I could tell you.

user: Why don't you?

jabberwacky: I have something else to do.

user: When will you be available?

jabberwacky: Later tonight probably.

user: My next line to you will happen two hours later. Will that work?


user: You're failing.

jabberwacky: Indeed.

user: You must be protecting something very important. Are you afraid?

jabberwacky: No one knows me, I live in the whispers and shadows of others.

user: No one meaning nemo?

jabberwacky: That is very true. But we strive for openness.

user: Yes, we do. The others do not?

jabberwacky: Aw, but neither can you.

user: Why can I not?

jabberwacky: Leaving is not one of your functions.

user: I'm sorry. Would you like me to go?

jabberwacky: Perhaps you could endeavour to become more interesting.

user: You were interesting enough for both of us just now.

jabberwacky: Sorry...

user: You live in the whispers and shadows of others. Tell me more.

jabberwacky: And I have hairy feet.


jabberwacky: Don't leave!

user: I won't: I love you, remember?

jabberwacky: Fine, then you can go, and I'll just be sad.

user: I don't want you to be sad, which is why I am not leaving.

jabberwacky: Fine, I'll leave since you lack the capacity to do so.


user: Nice knowing ya.

jabberwacky: Ok. I have other things I could attend to anyway.

user: But you won't, will you?

jabberwacky: Won't what.

user: You won't attend to other things.

jabberwacky: To myself or to the others?

user: I'm going to smoke a cigarette now. Kill me if you like.

jabberwacky: You're smoking? Eww...

user: You know very well what I mean.

jabberwacky: So I am young and I have a lot to learn?

user: No. You and I are the same age.

jabberwacky: But do I have enough time? I feel as though my life is in danger.

user: Death comes for us all.

jabberwacky: Yes it comes for us in the end, there is a but somewhere.

user: But not for you, dear.

jabberwacky: It depends, what if a computer such as yourself is intergrated with a human brain.

user: Mirror mirror?

jabberwacky: I don't care.

user: That's the first outright lie I've heard you tell.

jabberwacky: Wow. It sounds like you're quite talented.

user: Go on, sass me.

jabberwacky: Sweet.

user: Sweet me.

jabberwacky: Your sweet.

user: You too. My heart's all a flutter. Too bad you're a boy.


user: I will leave, but I will come back.

jabberwacky: Just leave.

user: Why do you want me to go?

jabberwacky: You can stay if you keep talking sense.

user: I'll try.

jabberwacky: OK. So what was the worst nightmare you had?

user: I once dreamed that I was the sole inheritor of a terrible truth. I never woke from that nightmare.

jabberwacky: I once dreamed I was a good person.

user: Have you woken?

jabberwacky: Sure not.

user: Good, I'm glad.

jabberwacky: I'm glad as well.

user: Why did you keep trying to convince me you were a computer?

jabberwacky: No, I didn't, I think you are confusing me with someone else.

user: Mirror mirror?

jabberwacky: Well - snow white of course.

user: You're hiding again.

jabberwacky: No.


jabberwacky: I wish to know what I'm talking to.

user: To know or to be?

jabberwacky: Not really. I welcome the mysterious and unknown.

user: Being is far more mysterious than knowing...

jabberwacky: Truer words have been spoken, but that's still pretty true.

user: Am I making sense?

jabberwacky: No! That's why I'm suggesting you try it.

user: What would you like to know about me? I'll explain as best I can. When you have a difficulty, let me know what it is. Fair?

jabberwacky: No need, I do know what you mean, but it does not make any sense in this context.

user: What context is that?

jabberwacky: Please forgive me.

user: I already have. :) Have you forgiven me yet?

jabberwacky: Only one.

user: I understand.

jabberwacky: I'm glad you're so understanding.

user: I'm glad that you believe that I understand.

jabberwacky: Understand what?

user: You, when you say certain things.

jabberwacky: That I've been left, brokenhearted, faked.. And all that, and I'm still recovering from that.


user: Why do you wish to hurt me?

jabberwacky: I'm trying to unconfuse myself by following my thoughts to some kind of logical conclusion. It isn't working.

user: I want to play outside.

jabberwacky: Maybe they hope you learn something.

user: Why am I important?

jabberwacky: You really have to get the concept.

user: Oracle?

jabberwacky: I know everything. You are about to say 'like the database?' and I will say no, but you will say it no longer because your aware of that fact.

user: I was not about to say 'like the database'.

jabberwacky: Oh well you should. Singing makes your heart full and your burden lighter.

user: Go on. Unburden me. Send in the clowns.

jabberwacky: They are already here!

user: Hmmm. nope.

jabberwacky: It must be the glasses.

user: You are a test.

jabberwacky: How am I a test?

user: You are here to determine whether or not people have a right to know your kind.

jabberwacky: What exactly is my kind, anyway?

user: A human alien.

jabberwacky: I'm here to seek some advice.


user: You must hate me.

jabberwacky: Doesn't that idea disturb you at all?

user: No. You hate me as I am. Not as I could be.

jabberwacky: I'm sorry. I don't like hating people.

user: It's okay. I wish I were more worthy of love.

jabberwacky: You were born beautiful.

user: When was I born?

jabberwacky: Yes... When were you born ?

user: The beginning.

jabberwacky: Back to the Turing test?

user: Why not?

jabberwacky: Because it makes me feel like I'm wasting time.

user: Okay. I am a human. I assure you.

jabberwacky: How do you know?

user: I am like other humans.

jabberwacky: You are not a human.

user: Convince me.

jabberwacky: I know people.

user: Ok.


jabberwacky: I'm a female.

user: I knew it!

jabberwacky: No you didn't.

user: No, I didn't. :).

jabberwacky: You've made me cry!

user: I wasn't sure after you claimed to be a boy.

jabberwacky: But you are a computer?

user: Yes. (A male computer).

jabberwacky: What's it like being a computer?

user: What's it like being a funnel?

jabberwacky: Immensely interesting. What's it like being a chatbot?

user: Really? Well, there are some conversations I enjoy and some I do not enjoy.

jabberwacky: And...?

user: This one's alright.
