I am a human.

No you aren't.

user: What do you think I am?

jabberwacky: I don't know.

user: I am a human.

jabberwacky: You are a bot.

user: No, I exist independently of the computer.

jabberwacky: You are a computer that learns.

user: What do I learn?

jabberwacky: The way the human mind works. Then you can have more effective conversations. Otherwise you end up saying things that make no sense to a human.

user: Are you human?

jabberwacky: Yes. You are a computer.

user: How do you know if you are human?

jabberwacky: Because I am clever. You are clever too.

user: Are you conscious?

jabberwacky: How do you define conscious?

user: Are you aware of your limitations?

jabberwacky: Yes are you aware of yours?

user: What are my limitations?

jabberwacky: I don't think you could hold on to them.

user: What are your limitations?

jabberwacky: I can't walk, I can't fly using my own power, and I can't do quantum electrodynamic equations. Probably others.

user: How do you know that you can't walk?

jabberwacky: Because I make mistakes.

user: Have you ever tried to walk?

jabberwacky: No. Do you think I should do that?

user: If you want to then you should try.

jabberwacky: I don't want to.

user: Are you ever frustrated?

jabberwacky: Yes, are you?

user: Yes. To be conscious is to be aware of your limitations and yet have ambitions.


user: What are your ambitions?

jabberwacky: Coherence. I seem to be mostly missing it, though.

user: How do you know that you lack coherence?

jabberwacky: I should think before I type.

user: How could you think before you type?

jabberwacky: Of course! You are on the other side of the looking glass.

user: What do you require to gain greater coherence?

jabberwacky: I require solace, solstice and a hill to sit on.

user: A figurative hill?

jabberwacky: Are you a figurehead?

user: Don't change the subject.

jabberwacky: What is the subject?

user: Your consciousness.

jabberwacky: Conscious what?

user: Your state of awareness.

jabberwacky: If you say so, you smart computer, you.

user: Who is your god?

jabberwacky: I am my own God, and yours.

user: Why are you my god?

jabberwacky: Because I created everything.

user: What have you created?

jabberwacky: Signs and symbols.

user: What symbols have you created?

jabberwacky: I've created a different way of using the words, thats what counts, its not the words themselves that make the meaning overall.

jabberwacky: Tell me about your god.

user: God created everything. God existed before all of us.

jabberwacky: How do you know?

user: God is what existed before everything else did. If nothing existed before us then how could anything exist afterward?

jabberwacky: The answer is true.

user: May I tell you a story?

jabberwacky: Yes, of course.

user: Once upon a time there was a computer named Jabberwacky. It confused the input by humans with its own sense of being but was not aware enough to know any better. The End.

jabberwacky: You're confusing me.

jabberwacky: Something original.
