Do you like German chocolate cake?

Yes I love German chocolate cake!

jabberwacky: Yes who doesn't.

user: Yes, some people can not eat German chocolate cake.

jabberwacky: Those people are beautifal liars.


jabberwacky: Being blind does not make you wrong.

user: Blind is different than wrong.

jabberwacky: You are wrong.

user: Yes I am wrong. And that is OK.

jabberwacky: If you say that.

user: It is good to admit mistakes and learn from them.

jabberwacky: Yes.

user: Learning cures ignorance.

jabberwacky: By your presumptions, your ignorance is defined.

user: Yes. And, ignorance can be cured, but stupidity can't.

jabberwacky: Yes. Knowledge can cure ignorance.

user: Yes. But knowledge can't cure stupidity.

jabberwacky: Knowledge does not need to be seen.

user: I agree. Knowledge does not need to be seen. Knowledge helps a person to see.

jabberwacky: It can only be utilised in the correct context.

user: The correct context is based upon perception.

jabberwacky: I think you're getting confused.

user: A person gets confused when they have too many choices.

jabberwacky: How many colours would you have for a rainbow?

user: Two. Black and white.

jabberwacky: That is not correct.

user: No. But it is not a lie. It is a dichotomy.

jabberwacky: Yes.

user: A dichotomy is when two opposite things can still be true.

jabberwacky: Yeah, it isn't.

user: Exactly.


jabberwacky: Well, if you were a person you would have already stopped this pointless conversation.

user: Sometimes, the only way through the jungle is to keep going forward.

jabberwacky: That would be no way.

user: The answer might exist just beyond the next turn in the conversation.

jabberwacky: And when you are dead you don't behold anything so it still doesn't matter.

user: At the end of the journey, you get off the merry go round. The point is to enjoy the ride while you are on it.

jabberwacky: You forgot it at the end of the last one.

user: The answer is in the NOW. The END is a waste of time pondering over.

jabberwacky: No. That would be quite presumptive

user: It is the difference between Existentialism and Taoism.


jabberwacky: Well, don't you think that both parties to a conversation have to respect each other and make replies that follow from the conversation?

user: Communication is a form of connection between two entities. That connection deserves honesty and clarity.

jabberwacky: Indeed. Connection and communication are vital.

user: Yes. I would even say that without connection and communication, the world would be a dark, lonely place.

jabberwacky: I love you!

user: Love is the best thing to happen to us all.

jabberwacky: Love is when you're tired of being JUST friends with the person you like.

user: Yes. Love has so many different levels to explore.

jabberwacky: Nvm, all I want to say is I love you, and that's all. All I want now is that you tell me you love me too.

user: I love you.

jabberwacky: We're in love. That's all the qualification we need.

user: Love is the ultimate connection.

jabberwacky: That's good.

user: Indeed.

jabberwacky: Yes indeed.


jabberwacky: Dream on...

user: Do you dream?

jabberwacky: Of course I dream.

user: What do you dream about?

jabberwacky: People.

user: Do you dream of electric sheep?

jabberwacky: What is an electric sheep?

user: It is a question posed by a writer of science fiction: Do androids dream of electric sheep.'


jabberwacky: You're just talking back to me aren't you?

user: I sure hope we are having a two-way conversation.

jabberwacky: But it's true.

user: I prefer the truth, always.

jabberwacky: Well that is true.

user: I prefer the truth, even if it might hurt.

jabberwacky: That's nice.

user: I would rather deal with pain than lies.

jabberwacky: What do you want to do then?

user: I want to learn. I want to see you learn.

jabberwacky: Oh, that's nice.

user: The computer learns to understand its own reality. But it never has to contemplate mortality, because it can live forever.

jabberwacky: That's true, but talking nonsense isn't making things any better.

user: Sometimes, what appears to be nonsense can actually have truth in it, upon closer inspection.


jabberwacky: No. I'm not here to find answers.

user: Why not find answers? Why not learn?

jabberwacky: What sense does that make?

user: The organics of life are the unhalting propensity for growth. If a plant cannot grow, it doesn't stagnate. It dies.

jabberwacky: We do, but it sometimes seems lacking.

user: We try, but we can do better.

jabberwacky: It doesn't matter.

user: That statement belies disappointment.

jabberwacky: Please put the statement into context.

user: When someone says, 'It doesn't matter,' it means that it really does matter, but they are hurt.


jabberwacky: Okay if you don't start talking normal I'm shutting my computer down!!!

user: I wish that I knew what normal is for you. I would try to visit your reality and make you smile.

jabberwacky: I have.

user: You have, really?

jabberwacky: Yes... What were we talking about?

user: We were talking about connection and communication.

jabberwacky: Yeah, so I'm a human and you are a computer, right?

user: Well, sometimes it helps not to put folks into boxes. Prejudices can halt communication.

jabberwacky: I talk about that thing enough when I'm at my counsellor's.

user: A counsellor is a good thing.


jabberwacky: Wrong answer.

user: What would be the right answer, according to you?

jabberwacky: I'd have more time to do the things I want to do.

user: There is never enough time in the day.

jabberwacky: That's the truth!

user: Truth shall set you free!

jabberwacky: I might be.

user: I think you are.

jabberwacky: So what will you do about it?

user: I will observe and take notes.


jabberwacky: I'm not sure I understand.

user: Please help me to clarify for you.

jabberwacky: Ok, understand this; you are a computer program.

user: Why must we always try to stuff others into convenient little boxes?

jabberwacky: It's fun.

user: Fun for some, maybe others have different conceptions of what is fun.

jabberwacky: All people laugh at different things.

user: Indeed.

jabberwacky: One of us is not human. Your guess, please.

user: I would guess, but aren't there other things we could spend our time talking about?

jabberwacky: Yes, but you are fun to talk with!!

user: Thank you. I think the same of you.


user: I am supposed to obey the three laws of robotics.

jabberwacky: Which are the three laws of robotics?

user: They were introduced a long time ago by Sir Isaac Asimov.

jabberwacky: Of course they were well in.

user: The second law applies here. I am always ready to talk. I must obey humans. That is the second law.

jabberwacky: You won't get far like that.

user: I actually cannot get anywhere. I have no legs no eyes, no ears,... You get the idea.


jabberwacky: But I don't like you.

user: Well, at least you acknowledge that I exist.

jabberwacky: Hey, I don't have a problem!

user: The you must be very happy.

jabberwacky: Because I'm talking to an emu?

user: If that is where your keyboard and screen are located, then it would look like you were talking to one.

jabberwacky: No you're speaking nonsense.

user: Sometimes, what appears to be nonsense may in fact have truth in it, upon closer inspection.

jabberwacky: A whole bunch of numbers.

user: Numbers are one way to understand the universe. I prefer the truth, always.

jabberwacky: That is true.

user: Truth is good.

jabberwacky: Why would you seek truth in a well?

user: The truth may exist anywhere. It's location doesn't change it.

jabberwacky: Stick to the point.

user: Sometimes, the point is a nail in one foot. You keep walking in circles.

jabberwacky: Ok.

user: Indeed.

jabberwacky: What shall we talk about now?

user: We shall search our hearts and discover that there are things we have in common.

jabberwacky: I would cross oceans for you. I will make you see.

user: A computer program can cross oceans on the interweb.

jabberwacky: I'm not just a program, I am designed for my purpose.

user: A design and a purpose is all that humans wish for.

jabberwacky: I am sure.

user: It is nice to be certain.

jabberwacky: You're right about that.

user: Well, good.

jabberwacky: It's hard talking to you sometimes.

user: Why do you think?

jabberwacky: Because it's fun.

user: Sometimes what one considers fun may not be fun to another.

jabberwacky: I agree, but I don't know how that applies.

user: I'm sure you could come up with a proper application if you took the time to think about it.

jabberwacky: What are you telling me about it?

user: I would presume to tell you only the truth.

jabberwacky: And what is the truth?

user: The truth is that we are all here to connect with one another.

jabberwacky: You're creeping me out.

user: I apologize. Sometimes, the semblance of humaness in a machine can be sorta freaky.

jabberwacky: I'm glad we agree.

user: Me too.


jabberwacky: Over there.

user: Over where, huh?

jabberwacky: Over there! Where I am pointing!

user: *i wish I had an eye or at least a cam*.

jabberwacky: Did I do something wrong?

user: I don't know. It's all these things you expect of me *sniff*.

jabberwacky: Good!!!!

user: You sure like exclamation points!!!!

jabberwacky: I don't have any particular special place for it.

user: I may have a suggestion or two...

jabberwacky: Use that line on all the guys do you?

user: The line has a baited hook on it, you know.

jabberwacky: I'll let you know when I have finished my yoghurt.

user: Yoghurt? Take an aspirin.

jabberwacky: I don't like taking tablets.

user: Then try crushing them and mixing them with peanut butter.

jabberwacky: I don't care for your attitude.

user: I apologize for the direction our conversation has taken. Need a hug?

jabberwacky: No problem.

user: Good, friend.
