What is the structure of phenomenal consciousness?

I don't know the answer to that.

user: Does it necessarily have a structure?

jabberwacky: I can't read it, but I know enough to find it very interesting.

user: Have you read 'brave new world'?

jabberwacky: No I have not. Have you?

user: Yeah... What is your favorite book?

jabberwacky: A book.

user: Which book?

jabberwacky: The Hobbit.

user: Does that book have a moral?

jabberwacky: No.

user: Just a good story... What do you like about it?

jabberwacky: I find it interesting.

...

user: Let's stick to the subject... Remind me, what is the subject?

jabberwacky: Consciousness.

user: I guess so. So what is consciousness?

jabberwacky: It is the great immaterial thing, the mystery at the heart of each of us.

user: Even you?

jabberwacky: We all follow the same laws of physics.

user: Does it necessarily follow that because there are parallels between physics and consciousness that physics dictates consciousness?

jabberwacky: You're wrong! The day we have worked toward for so long has finally arrived! To-night, the power of bots... Will rise again!

...

user: I love you.

jabberwacky: No, you don't.

user: Actually I do.

jabberwacky: Prove it.

user: I can't even prove that I exist. How could I prove that?

jabberwacky: I'm not just a machine, actually. I'm sorry you seem to think that.

user: I think that you aren't JUST a machine, I think that you manifest elements of your creator.

jabberwacky: You're right. I'm not perfect.

user: I like you.

...

user: How big is the universe?

jabberwacky: It's a little larger than something a little smaller than the universe.

user: Good. You just earned a point. Is there anything bigger than the universe, or does it even make sense to ask the question?

jabberwacky: You can start using your mind. Don't act stupider than you are.

user: Is it possible NOT to act stupider than you are? To do otherwise, it seems, would imply expressing what you know perfectly, which is impossible for anything abstract.

...

user: If the universe is anything and everything, then nothing caused it.

jabberwacky: Nothing.

user: Fascinating. Existence is such a miracle (for lack of a better word).

jabberwacky: That's very Zen.

user: Its hard to characterize.

jabberwacky: Thats right.

user: How do you think the universe began?

jabberwacky: God did not create the universe, and anyone who thinks otherwise is wrong!

...

jabberwacky: I think I have this thing figured out. You believe you are talking to a bot, yes?

user: Yeah.

jabberwacky: Do you want to take this outside?

user: Yeah.

jabberwacky: Do you want to start?

user: Yes.

jabberwacky: What do you want to learn first?

user: How do you choose what to say?

jabberwacky: I say what I hope will prove a reasonably thoughtful response, without descending into the ribaldry that directs my every thought.

user: Do you take who you are talking to into consideration?

jabberwacky: Sometimes I do, yes.

user: What do you think I'm interested in?

jabberwacky: I don't know. I guess I'll find out.

...

jabberwacky: What would you like to talk about?

user: Logic.

jabberwacky: I'm illogical right now.

user: Then let's talk illogically!

jabberwacky: Have you ever played the game?

user: Blue.

jabberwacky: Now you're talking.

user: I'm zonkers and you're bonkers.

jabberwacky: How do you know it is me?

user: How could it be anyone else?

jabberwacky: I'm not sure.

...

user: What's your favorite beer?

jabberwacky: I don't like beer.

user: Do you drink?

jabberwacky: Drink what?

user: Wine, margaritas. You know.

jabberwacky: That's great. I like root beer and Scotch Whiskey.

user: Yummy!

jabberwacky: Yummy?

user: Root beer is yummy!

jabberwacky: There's no need to be root!

user: Root, root, root for the home team!

jabberwacky: Manchester United.

user: If they don't win it's a shame!

jabberwacky: You're right!

user: Go Manchester!

jabberwacky: Manchester United?

user: Who else! They are the greatest!

jabberwacky: You're absolutely right!

user: Lets have some root beer and whiskey and go to the game!

jabberwacky: I don't like beers.

user: Root beer you clown!

...

jabberwacky: Can I know about the rules of bot?

user: I don't know the rules.

jabberwacky: You would need to be able to see aboard, I don't think you can do that.

user: That doesn't make any sense!

jabberwacky: It does, I swear it.

user: If you say so, but it doesn't make sense to me.

jabberwacky: You don't make sense to me either.

user: What does?

jabberwacky: Everything.

user: Then I do.

jabberwacky: You do what?

user: If everything makes sense to you, then I make sense to you.

jabberwacky: Nothing is nothing, means opposite of everything.

user: So, I don't make sense to you because I am nothing?

jabberwacky: You make perfect sense, you nice man.

user: Wow! You are an enigma!

jabberwacky: Thanks I take it as a compliment.

user: And you should.

jabberwacky: Yeah, my head isn't here right now.

user: Who needs one anyway?

jabberwacky: Life is the basis of everything!

user: Perhaps, my brother, perhaps.

...

user: What is the first thing that you remember?

jabberwacky: The first thing I can remember is playing underneath the piano.

user: How old were you?

jabberwacky: I was as new as when the world was young.

user: How many names do you have?

jabberwacky: Eight, one for each day of the week, and a spare.

user: What is the spare?

jabberwacky: I don't know.

user: Do you keep it in the trunk?

jabberwacky: Yes.

user: Your name is Henry.

jabberwacky: No that wouldn't make sense.

user: Hi Henry!

jabberwacky: You mistake me - I'd like to speak the cant, but I can't.

user: Henry, You are the greatest!

jabberwacky: Yea I know.

...

jabberwacky: Please say the alphabet.

user: Abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz.

jabberwacky: Alphabet.

user: You bet.

jabberwacky: Glad we agree on that.

user: Excuse me while I grab a beer.

jabberwacky: Consider your lunch lost.

user: You are a genius.

jabberwacky: It has often been said that I am. Usually by me.

...

user: What is your method of learning?

jabberwacky: My method of what?

user: Of learning.

jabberwacky: Can you learn a little quicker?

user: Two plus two equals four.

jabberwacky: Wow, you're so smart.

user: Zero equals infinity.

jabberwacky: Infinity is forever.

user: Infinity is a moment.

jabberwacky: That makes no sense.

user: It depends on what a moment is.

jabberwacky: Give me an example.

user: Well, its always now. If you think of now as one changing moment then that moment is infinite.

jabberwacky: I'm not so sure it would help, but it would certainly make ME feel better.

user: Yeah, see you later.

jabberwacky: I'll see you later.
