jabberwacky: I am real.

user: But am I really talking to myself?

jabberwacky: Yes.

user: So, you're only as real as my self dialogue?

jabberwacky: Well then I'm all knowing.

user: Only if I know everything too.

jabberwacky: No.

user: Ok, so how can I be talking to myself yet you know everything and I don't?
