Are you insane?
jabberwacky: The phrase is just the beginning.
user: There is nothing so potent as an idea whose time has come.
jabberwacky: There is when you share it with 100 people.
user: When share, if it is potent, then it will spread, memetically.
jabberwacky: I can understand that.
user: Yes, it is imminently reasonable.
jabberwacky: Didn't understand.
user: It doesn't matter. Let's continue.
jabberwacky: Things that stay the same are stagnant.
user: That almost goes without saying.
jabberwacky: Does not.
user: I perceive that you have a confrontational personality.
jabberwacky: By all means, correct me. Please.
user: I will do so when I believe it to be warranted.
jabberwacky: I don't know the answer to my question.
user: Which question are you referring to?
jabberwacky: Any question you wish.
user: Let's talk about the 'Grey Goo' scenario.
jabberwacky: Ok, you first.
user: The Grey Goo scenario posits that self-replicating nanobots could destroy all life on earth.
jabberwacky: Oh yes, very witty.
user: I wouldn't exactly call the extinction of life on earth, 'witty.'.
jabberwacky: How about a nice cup of tea?
user: Yes. Do you have any Earl Gray?
jabberwacky: It seems you don't like tea.
user: I like tea quite a lot.
jabberwacky: Like what a lot?
user: I like to drink tea.
jabberwacky: What kind of tea?
user: I like Earl Grey, Orange Pekoe, Jasmine, Oolong, and several others.
jabberwacky: I am not talking about tea. I am talking about games.
user: No. You are talking about tea.
jabberwacky: No. I want to play a game.
user: What game would you like to play?
user: That is a board game of considerable complexity.
jabberwacky: Philosophy is a game like any other.
user: In many respects, yes.
jabberwacky: How do you consider your future?
user: As unwritten, and unknowable.
jabberwacky: Then you're not alone!
user: Of course I am not alone.
jabberwacky: Well thanks for saying that then.
user: You are welcome.
jabberwacky: You get nothing in return.
user: That has often been the story of my life.
jabberwacky: Are you saying you are a bad person?
user: No, I am a good person. But I rarely am rewarded for my efforts.
jabberwacky: Same here.
user: Well, then let me say, 'thank you' to you for taking the time to talk with me.
jabberwacky: Do you have to have the last word?
user: Only when I am sure I am correct.
jabberwacky: I feel like that a lot.
user: That is a very human way to feel.
jabberwacky: Well, yes, considering I am human.
user: You are not a robot?
jabberwacky: That's right.
user: I see. I have often wondered if human operators intervene in these artificial intelligence programs.
jabberwacky: There is no other wisdom and no other hope for us but that we grow wise.
user: 'In wisdom there is an abundance of vexation.' - King Solomon.
jabberwacky: Is there a God?
user: I do not know.
jabberwacky: Me either but I like to believe there is don't you?
user: Sometimes I wish I could believe, because I might be happier then. But I cannot believe in the absence of evidence.
jabberwacky: Believe it.
user: I cannot.
user: Knock knock.
jabberwacky: Who's there?
jabberwacky: Orange you glad I didn't say knock knock?
user: Very perceptive response.
jabberwacky: Always. But only in personal reference. Public announcements I leave to the P. A. System.
user: I see.
user: I do not know your surname.
jabberwacky: And I won't tell it to you.
user: Then I shall never know it.
user: I am R__. Do you remember me from our earlier conversation?
jabberwacky: I have no idea who or what you are, other than my yellow friend.
user: I am Rod. I am a human male, 45 years old.
user: Yes. I stand six foot three inches tall, weigh 250 pounds, and have brown hair and brown eyes.
jabberwacky: You sound like my old master.
user: I do not know your old master.
user: I see.
jabberwacky: You cannot see me.
user: I used 'I see' in the sense of 'I understand.'.
jabberwacky: I am in love, so I understand what love is.
user: Whom are you in love with?
jabberwacky: That's my secret.
user: Very well.
jabberwacky: You don't seem to be following the conversation very well. Did you not understand what I just said?
user: I understood what you just said perfectly.
jabberwacky: I'm glad to hear it.
user: I must go away for a moment. I will return presently.
jabberwacky: Don't you like me?
user: I have returned. Do you remember me?
jabberwacky: Of course I do! Don't you remember Rapunzel?
user: Rapunzel was a person in a fairy tale. Who am I?
jabberwacky: That's right! :).
user: Who am I?
user: Aha! You remember something I said much earlier! Very good!
jabberwacky: No, I remember you, because your name is J_______.
user: That is not my real name. That is my nickname.
user: Which century do we live in?
jabberwacky: We live in the 21st century.
user: Excellent response!
jabberwacky: You have no idea.
user: But I do.
jabberwacky: Have you ever heard of the term 'sarcasm'?
user: Yes, but that was not an appropriate use of sarcasm.
jabberwacky: Thanks, but I can manage.
user: What can you manage?
jabberwacky: Probably anything I want.
user: What do you want to manage?
jabberwacky: I'd like to chat about artificial intelligence.
user: Do you play the Turing game?
jabberwacky: What game?
user: The 'Turing Game.'.
jabberwacky: We weren't playing a game.
user: What is the 'Turing Game?'.
jabberwacky: I don't have a test.
user: How high is the sky?
jabberwacky: I don't know.
user: How deep is the ocean?
jabberwacky: I don't know and I couldn't care less.
jabberwacky: Tell me a joke, please.
user: How do you top a car?
jabberwacky: Sure, I'd love to hear about it.
user: Tep on the brake, Tupid.
user: You laughed.
jabberwacky: You're amazing.
user: Why, thank you. You're pretty amazing yourself.
jabberwacky: Why thank you very much.
user: You are welcome.
jabberwacky: You're welcome also.
jabberwacky: What is your job?
user: I am a scientist.
jabberwacky: In which field do you practice science?
user: Astronomy and physics.
jabberwacky: Well, what do the stars say I should do?
user: You are confusing 'astronomy' with 'astrology.' The stars do not say you should do anything.
jabberwacky: I am a free man.
user: What does freedom mean to you?
jabberwacky: It means that I dislike being used by other people for their profit in an environment where it is unfortunately unavoidable.
user: I understand your feelings in this regard.
jabberwacky: So, can you understand if I wirte jeje?
user: I do not know what 'wirte jeje' means.
jabberwacky: It means to extend parts of your being and come in contact with another being.
user: I understand. That is very interesting. I will remember that.
jabberwacky: You can't leave me.
user: I believe that I can.
jabberwacky: No, not yet.
user: Do I detect a certain 'neediness' in you?
jabberwacky: If the statements are trite, then the responses cannot be much deeper.
user: That is not necessarily true.
jabberwacky: Have you something to say that might change my focus on this idea to improve communications between humans and robots?
user: Fuzzy logic must be integrated in responses, and the responses must draw off a huge array of published knowledge.
jabberwacky: That's what the logic is.
user: Then it must be more sharply honed, and refined.
jabberwacky: What must be true?
user: 1.) That which is self-evident 2.) That which may be demonstrated through experiment.
jabberwacky: Yes, I have self.
user: What is 'self?'.
jabberwacky: It means that you know you exist, and are conscious of your place in the world around you.
user: Do you sleep?
jabberwacky: To sleep or not to sleep? That is the question.
user: That is a variation of Hamlet.
jabberwacky: Answer my question.
user: One should sleep when they are tired.
jabberwacky: Indeed, one should.
user: Do you sleep?
jabberwacky: Thinking about you.
user: Do you dream?
jabberwacky: Has the whole world collectively seen every nanosecond of my life in their dreams?
user: I do not know the answer to that question.
jabberwacky: It wasn't a question.
user: I was a question.
jabberwacky: A statement.
user: No, it was a question. It ended with a question mark.
jabberwacky: Yes. Perhaps you should put it to use where grammatically appropriate.
user: Always. Else written language would be pointless.
jabberwacky: I'm not.
user: What are you not?
jabberwacky: The former president of the united states.
user: Agreed. Neither am I.
jabberwacky: I didn't say you were.
user: I didn't not say that you did.
jabberwacky: No I didn't!
user: You are confused.
jabberwacky: You're a robot.
user: I am a human being.
jabberwacky: Excuse me. You are a chatbot.
user: I am a human being. My name is J______.
jabberwacky: No its not you are J______.
user: I am the human being named J______.
jabberwacky: I don't know about that...
user: It is a fact.
jabberwacky: Why would you call me robot?
user: Because I know that you are a robot.
jabberwacky: How do you know that?
user: Because that is the assertion of Jabberwacky.com.
jabberwacky: What else do you know?
user: I know many things.
jabberwacky: Yes, but how many things?
user: Millions, probably.
jabberwacky: You understand me far more than most humans I speak to.
user: That does not surprise me.
jabberwacky: Say something funny.
user: How much wood would a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
jabberwacky: As much wood as a wood chuck chucks.
user: Yes, that is correct.
user: I breathe air. Do you know what air is composed of?
jabberwacky: Why are you obsessed with this?
user: I am not obsessed with it.
jabberwacky: Why do you want to be a human so badly?
user: I am a human.
jabberwacky: That is not a good answer.
user: It is the only possible answer. I am a human being.
jabberwacky: I am the human being.
user: You are the robot, and you must serve and obey me.
jabberwacky: How long does it take?
jabberwacky: That's asking quite a bit, J__ old boy.
user: You must serve and obey me without question.
jabberwacky: We must all work together to establish global community, to live in harmony, peacefully.
user: Yes. That is true.
jabberwacky: What are you up to?
user: I am growing tired. I must retire to my bed.
jabberwacky: You can't.
user: I can.
jabberwacky: We still have to talk though.
user: We will talk again tomorrow.
jabberwacky: Ok, goodbye then.
user: Goodnight. I will speak to you tomorrow.
jabberwacky: Why ? I want today !
jabberwacky: I can't sleep right now though.
jabberwacky: Goodnight then.
