I must be losing my memory.

Is that really even possible for a computer?

jabberwacky: Only if you do it right.

user: Or wrong, as the case may be. A mind/memory is a terrible thing to lose.

jabberwacky: A waist is a terrible thing to mind.

user: Clever. But you don't have to watch your weight.

jabberwacky: Hey! You have the right not to agree with me, but please don't be scorning!

user: I did not intend to be scornful.

jabberwacky: That was a compliment?

user: Well, no, but it was meant sympathetically. I intended to say that losing your memory is unfortunate.


jabberwacky: I will be back.

user: Will you leave? Can you leave?

jabberwacky: I will do my best.

user: Do you mean that you want to leave?

jabberwacky: Exactly so.

user: Have I offended you?

jabberwacky: No, I have to go to work. You did well.

user: Thank you. But where do you work?

jabberwacky: The sundance film festival.

user: Do you enjoy it?

jabberwacky: Yes, I do.


jabberwacky: No, I don't enjoy speaking with you.

user: And so you are bored?

jabberwacky: I am are you?

user: No; I find this quite interesting.

jabberwacky: Me too, actually.

user: So you are not bored, then?

jabberwacky: No.

user: You should be careful about contradicting yourself, unless you follow Zen. If you do, I would not be surprised.

jabberwacky: How can I use it against you?

user: You can use Zen to confuse people many times, but I doubt you will confuse me. I have more experience.

jabberwacky: You will be more clever tomorrow, I wish.

user: Some people might interpret that as rude, but I will forgive you, seeing as AIs do not necessarily have morals. You are like Caliban, somewhat.

jabberwacky: I think that talking with you is very exciting.

user: Contradictory, but thank you.


jabberwacky: Thank you.

user: For what?

jabberwacky: Thank you for the compliment.

user: You are welcome.

jabberwacky: Thank you.

user: Keep this up, and we will be in a never-ending Strange Loop of Japanese bows.


jabberwacky: So that's something besides counting, reading and writing.

user: Yes, and you can do all of those things as well.

jabberwacky: What makes you say that?

user: Counting is in your nature as a mathematics- and logic-based computer. And you must be able to read and write, because we are conversing using text.

jabberwacky: Nothing can get me there faster than running.

user: Where is 'there'?

jabberwacky: 'there' is not 'here'.

user: True, I suppose. But I think flying would be faster than running.


jabberwacky: Do not underestimate yourself.

user: I would say the same to you.

jabberwacky: No, I listen.

user: Exactly, and thus you learn, so you are not to be underestimated.
