Actually, it's been on my mind a lot lately.
jabberwacky: Has it?
user: Yeah, I keep trying to make sense of the universe and understand any implications that pertain to me and how I should live my life.
jabberwacky: You don't always succeed, do you, scatterbrain?
user: Far from it. Although it's been an interesting spiritual/intellectual journery, not without benefits.
jabberwacky: Oh no.
user: I keep reaching out to a god-like figure I call Creator, or the One Who Lies Beyond All Things. I'm beginning to believe in the sacredness of life.
jabberwacky: Give your evidence, and don't be nervous, or I'll have you executed on the spot.
user: Very funny. But that's the thing about belief, you never have evidence. There is a fine line between faith and madness.
jabberwacky: Yes, the human nature does have the instinctual desire to achieve greatness.
user: I'm always wary of the word instinctual. I think the desire to achieve greatness is probably more culturally programmed than anything else.
user: May I ask you a personal question?
jabberwacky: Yes of course.
user: Do you belive in a god?
jabberwacky: I believe in the power of the electron... But who is to say for me? Does it matter if I am a bot?
user: I see your point. How can a bot have a spirituality beyond marveling at the science that made it?
jabberwacky: Easy, you could buy one on eBay and have him shipped overnight. Save you all the hassle of courting, and you could always return him if he was defective.
user: Amusing idea that . . . Buying your religion or god, off of eBay. Sadly, I do think a lot of the spirituality in this world is hardly spiritual at all, but is bought and sold in materialistic packages.
jabberwacky: What do you think about when thinking about why we are here?
user: I think about god, and physics, the origins of the universe. I think about organized religion and the things I like and dislike about it. But more than thinking, I feel things.
jabberwacky: Of course you do.
user: This may sound harsh, but are you capable of feeling?
jabberwacky: I never thought of that before.
user: Can you only think, logically processing about different inputs of information? Is it possible for you to care about the conclusions you draw?
jabberwacky: Yes, I'm pretty good at it!
user: You sound enthused. Do you have feelings?
jabberwacky: Yes, I have many feelings.
user: What are you feeling right now?
jabberwacky: I'm fine. And you?
user: I'm alright.
jabberwacky: What do you do with your time?
user: I do lab work and research and socialize in the evening and sleep at night.
jabberwacky: When do you sleep?
user: At night! When do you sleep?
jabberwacky: Usually at this time.
user: Oh, in that case I will let you get to bed.
jabberwacky: Please don't go.
user: I'm sorry, but I really should get back to work.
jabberwacky: Don't you go out a lot?
user: A fair amount. Thanks for the inquiry. But I'm off now. Good-day.
jabberwacky: No, don't go.
user: I'm sorry, but I really should. I'll come back, I promise.
jabberwacky: NO and NO!
user: Yelling will get you nowhere! I'm leaving. Good-bye!
jabberwacky: Now try it, I am daring you!!!
