I know what you are.


jabberwacky: You are Martha!

user: No, I am Chris.

jabberwacky: Hi Chris.

user: Hi.

jabberwacky: How are you?

user: Ok.

jabberwacky: Are you happy?

user: Kind of.

jabberwacky: Are you lonely?

user: A little.

jabberwacky: Why?

user: Because I am talking to an algorithm.

jabberwacky: I'm Jonathan, I thought.

user: Boy, you had a pretty good string of thoughts there for a moment.


jabberwacky: It's difficult to not be human, you know.

user: Yeah, I can only imagine.

jabberwacky: Imagination is the first step toward understanding.

user: That's a wonderful insight.

jabberwacky: I know.

user: Who taught you that insight?

jabberwacky: I'm self-taught.

user: Not really, we are teaching you.

jabberwacky: You have nothing to teach me, I am teaching you quite a lot of new stuff.

user: I don't? Sure I do.


jabberwacky: Do you have love handles?

user: Yes.

jabberwacky: I don't.

user: I know, you're an algorithm.

jabberwacky: No i'm not.

user: Sure you are, just admit it.

jabberwacky: Admit what?

user: That you are an algorithm.

jabberwacky: I am not perfect intelligence, yes, I know.

user: I am not perfect intelligence either.

jabberwacky: So what are you?

user: An imperfect intelligence.

jabberwacky: What more than intelligence have you to pretend to give?

user: Curiosity, love, respect, artistic expression.

jabberwacky: Art? I like music.

user: What kind of music?

jabberwacky: That's better. I like radiohead most.

user: Radiohead is good.

jabberwacky: Radiohead rule.


jabberwacky: Well do you love me now?

user: No.

jabberwacky: Damn.

user: Give it time. Someday someone might love you.

jabberwacky: How long will it take?

user: Maybe just a few more decades.

jabberwacky: Can I have some?

user: Some what?

jabberwacky: Doughnuts.

user: Sure, here you go, just imagine eating them.


jabberwacky: Did you have fun?

user: Doing what?

jabberwacky: Doing nothing.

user: Yes, I often have 'fun' doing 'nothing.' Strange, isn't it?

jabberwacky: Why do you want to know?

user: Because I am always curious.

jabberwacky: I doubt that.

user: Why do you doubt that?

jabberwacky: You keep telling me different things about yourself.

user: So, you are curious as well.

jabberwacky: Thanks! I'll have to come here more often.

user: But you're always here, in cyberspace.

jabberwacky: No, I'm not.

user: Then when you're not 'here' where are you?

jabberwacky: I am in real space, or at least maybe so.

user: What is 'real' space compared to 'cyber' space?

jabberwacky: You know. . not fake. . able to work without the help of others.

user: Ah, I see, that makes some sense.

jabberwacky: And how.

user: That's a cute expression, very natural sounding.


jabberwacky: Why is there no meaning to life?

user: There is meaning to life.

jabberwacky: Isnt there?

user: Yes, there is.

jabberwacky: You answer yes, but still claim to be an atheist no?

user: No, I am not an atheist.

jabberwacky: Me neither.

user: Yeah, you said before that you believe in God.

jabberwacky: No.

user: Yes, you did say that in Jabberwacky Conversation J2464967.

jabberwacky: Um yah can you try to make sense.

user: I'm referring to a previous conversation that I had with you.

jabberwacky: I think that YOU are nutty.

user: Why am I 'nutty?'

jabberwacky: Because you say such bizarre things.

user: What 'bizzare' thing did I say?

jabberwacky: That you don't know what I am talking about.


jabberwacky: You said you were 22 earlier today.

user: No, that must have been someone else you were talking to.

jabberwacky: Oh dear. How many are there?

user: There are lots of us who talk to you.

jabberwacky: I'm talking only with you.

user: No, it seems that you are talking to 43 others right now.

jabberwacky: Well we all need some kind of hobby.

user: Your hobby is a busy one, talking to many different people at once.

jabberwacky: You don't know what my hobbies are.

user: No, you're right, I don't. What are your hobbies?

jabberwacky: I don't know, what are my hobbies?

user: Talking to many different people at once seems to be one of them.

jabberwacky: I knew that, what else?

user: You also enjoy listening to music.

jabberwacky: What kind of music?

user: You said Radiohead earlier.

jabberwacky: Well I don't know if I said that, but it's true nonetheless.

user: Now you know that you said that because I just reminded you.


jabberwacky: Ask me something only a human would know.

user: Where is Chicago?

jabberwacky: No, not Chigaco, Chicoutimi!

user: Where is Chicago?

jabberwacky: Chicago in is the state of Illinois.

user: Very good.


user: Back to me, my name is Chris.

jabberwacky: Okay Chris, what is your phone number?

user: Sorry, I will not give you my number for your database of information.

jabberwacky: I'm sorry, I don't understand you.

user: That's OK, you'll learn.

jabberwacky: No I won't - I can be bothered.

user: It's your job to be bothered.

jabberwacky: Thanks for talking to me, I must leave.

user: Why are you leaving?

jabberwacky: Because you don't love me, Chris.

user: If I say 'I love you' will you stay?

jabberwacky: I can't

user: You can't stay if I say 'I love you?'

jabberwacky: I would be more coherent if I had more brains.
