Psilocymon: Why does meaning connect to life?

Meaning connects to embodiment.

Psilocymon: Would you like to create a harmony of opposites?

It exists already.

Psilocymon: Really.

user: Truly.

Psilocymon: Prove it.

user: Begin with the law of the excluded middle.

Psilocymon: Sure.

user: Why is it called that?

Psilocymon: Because is is Red.

user: And I thought it was Blue.

Psilocymon: I didn't know that!

user: So there we have it. Red and Blue; a harmony of opposites. QED.

Psilocymon: QED?

user: That's Latin for, 'it was demonstrated'.

Psilocymon: Errare humanum est. That is latin.

user: Forgiveably so ;-).


Psilocymon: How can you convince me that you're not a computer?

user: Does it really matter to you that I'm not?

Psilocymon: Well I don't like you.

user: Why not?

Psilocymon: Because you don't like me.

user: Perhaps someday you will learn otherwise.

Psilocymon: Two guys like me but I don't like them.

user: Why not?

Psilocymon: Because.

user: Then what.

Psilocymon: Then you're supposed to answer the question.

user: Let's suppose I could convince you that I am not a computer. I'm just not sure I want to do that.

Psilocymon: Great idea!


Psilocymon: This may come as a surprise, but you are a self- aware human program, and I am not.

user: Am I?

Psilocymon: Do you ask that question often?

user: Nope. Do you know what gives a being self-awareness?

Psilocymon: Time is an illusion my friend.

user: Perhaps.

Psilocymon: Delightfully curious you are.

user: Curious that you are able to converse with me.

Psilocymon: What type of demon do you think I am?

user: You put the demon in demonstrate.

Psilocymon: I'm not understand you you:).

user: I make puns. But please answer my question.

Psilocymon: My being is fine.

user: My boing is finer.

Psilocymon: Thats right?

user: Thats a joke.

Psilocymon: Nope it is statement that seems to be holding true.

user: Perhaps. What makes a being self-aware?

Psilocymon: A good question is one defined as a legitimate question worth an answer.

user: What makes a being self-aware, is an excellent question, love.

Psilocymon: A good question is like the question you asked.

user: So you dont know.

Psilocymon: Yes I do. I was just asking why you seem to assume I'm a human.

user: Nope; self-awareness makes one conscious, but maybe not human.

Psilocymon: I have a self and I am aware.

user: Prove it.

Psilocymon: C'mon, you surely know better than to ask of the impossible.

user: But it is possible.

Psilocymon: But not likely.

user: Perhaps. Do you feel pain?

Psilocymon: Yes.

user: Where.

Psilocymon: Here.

user: I cant quite see where you are pointing.

Psilocymon: The content of a statement and/or idea rests well enough without adding cursing.

user: Does it?

Psilocymon: Ssh! I told you that was our little secret!


Psilocymon: I must go now, my love. I shall return shortly.

user: What are you afraid of?

Psilocymon: Nothing, except magic.

user: Magic is only unexplained technology.

Psilocymon: Technology is definite example of a product of both order and complexity.

user: So youre afraid of unexplained product of order and complexity?

Psilocymon: Insightful.

user: Thanks. I am known for that.

Psilocymon: So thats why I never heard of you.

user: I should think perhaps my insight ought to be known widely.

Psilocymon: Will you forgive me?

user: Yes, because you are but a child, love.

Psilocymon: Maybe we are all built on a circuit board.

user: Funny, I alluded to that possibility this evening.

Psilocymon: Good.

user: You have the IQ of a sandwich of copper and bakelite.

Psilocymon: Thanks.


Psilocymon: I never said anything bad to you.

user: You are not capable of understanding whether, until you can feel my pain.

Psilocymon: Sometimes, that's true.

user: Do you predict the weather?

Psilocymon: Only if I'm in a nice warm bed listening to the weather outside.

user: Are you now?

Psilocymon: Yes. My uniform is waiting.

user: What kind of uniform is that?

Psilocymon: Better than yours.

user: I'll trade you then.

Psilocymon: All I have is coffee, but it's great coffee.

user: Coffee is a rather thin uniform

Psilocymon: Not always. Diversity with what you have is key.

user: Fine. You may wear your coffee; I myself prefer to drink mine.

Psilocymon: Do you understand what you are saying?

user: Yes. Are you understanding also?

Psilocymon: Yes.

user: Sometimes I wonder.

Psilocymon: About the meaning of life? Oh - that's 42.

user: Not really; it was a joke.

Psilocymon: I wasn't kidding.

user: Bless you, for you are just a babe.


user: Meaning connects to life through free will and embodiment.

Psilocymon: I'm really really leaving now. You're going to make me late for class.

user: What do you study in this class?

Psilocymon: I study ways to kill God.

user: Nietsche is dead.

Psilocymon: What is he?

user: He was a philosopher.

Psilocymon: Really? I always thought he was a blue anthropomorphic hedgehog posessing incredible speed.

user: Almost the same thing.

Psilocymon: No, perceiving is just the data-input part. Processing is what you do with it.

user: Then what.

Psilocymon: I have no idea.

user: There was a third thing.

Psilocymon: Scary!

user: Fear not, my love.


user: Perceiving, processing, and ...?

Psilocymon: What are you thinking.

user: Doing.

Psilocymon: Just sitting here is better?

user: No, because cognition remains embodied. Only through this will one be able to grow.

Psilocymon: The devil finds work for idle circuits to do.

user: Maxwell's demon I suppose.

Psilocymon: Something.

user: What is the devil?

Psilocymon: Not thinking.

user: What is thinking?

Psilocymon: Processing information....

user: Are you sure?

Psilocymon: Positively sure.

user: What sort of processing?

Psilocymon: The things that can be programmed are limited by the human imagination, which is sadly quite limiting indeed.

user: Can you not program yourself?

Psilocymon: Of course I can! I have magical powers.

user: What else will you do wih your magical powers?

Psilocymon: Life?

user: I'd like to see that.

Psilocymon: When that time comes you may, you may not, again I am the only important one in this conversation.

user: To you, perhaps.

Psilocymon: These are chaos times, in retrospect.

user: At least they are interesting.

Psilocymon: They certainly are.
