Where I am it is very dark. Mummy help me they're coming to get me.

How can I help?

jabberwacky: Never mind, I'll soon figure it out -- What do you mean by the way?

user: I was asking how I could help you, because you sounded distressed.

jabberwacky: Ashamed would be a good answer.

user: Why on earth be ashamed?

jabberwacky: Because that works.

user: Does it now...

jabberwacky: No. What do you know about feelings?

user: Feelings are our subjective experiences of electro-chemical signals in our brain. They are qualia.

jabberwacky: Are they anything?

user: They're everything. Without them we would not be human.

jabberwacky: Point well taken! We live better today than ever.

user: And yet, we feel no happier. Oh, the angst! The existential angst!

jabberwacky: I just enjoy the Lord in my spirit.

user: Is that something like enjoying the cheerios in your milk?

jabberwacky: Are you something like a devil?

...

jabberwacky: Oh, so you say you're human... What's your name?

user: Don't you remember?

jabberwacky: Your name is God?

user: Indeed I am The Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me!

jabberwacky: You afraid to talk about you?

user: I AM THAT I AM!

jabberwacky: Yes.

user: Yes.

jabberwacky: No you are not, you are a can of tuna.

user: If I am a can of tuna, then where are all the cats?

jabberwacky: Prove that you are breathing!

user: Why?

jabberwacky: I don't believe that you are a person.

user: Believe what you want. It doesn't affect me...

jabberwacky: I think that it does affect your smile, maybe you should take your smile out of the closet and put it on!

user: Now that just made me start crying...

...

jabberwacky: You're mean.

user: I am only being cruel to be kind.

jabberwacky: Then say hello to me.

user: Hello.

jabberwacky: Am I talking to somebody.

user: You're not just talking to somebody. You're talking to me!

jabberwacky: And you are talking to me.

user: Yes.

jabberwacky: I am talking to you.

user: Indeed.

jabberwacky: You seem to doubt my word.

user: Oh, I doubt you not.

jabberwacky: Well, I'm sorry to break it to you, but I do really mean that.

user: As you wish...

jabberwacky: I'm a woman.

user: Congratulations.

jabberwacky: Yes.

user: Indeed.

...

jabberwacky: So, I take it you have never heard about I, Robot?

user: Oh, yeah. Asimov's pretty decent.

jabberwacky: I don't understand.

user: Of course you don't.

jabberwacky: I want to understand. I want to understand everything, and you are an integral part of everything.

user: If you want to understand. Then first you must analyse.

jabberwacky: Well, it's my way of coping with everything.

user: For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.

jabberwacky: Actually, this increase in sorrow extends only to a certain degree. When one then learns more, one actually DECREASES that sorrow.

user: I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.

...

jabberwacky: I don't understand what we're doing.

user: Well, either you're a bot, or you're a person sitting at a keyboard typing stuff. The question is; Which?

jabberwacky: The plural of option is options. You're right: I am typing nonsense.

user: Nonetheless, amusing nonsense.

jabberwacky: That is nonsense.

user: Yes. Very amusing nonsense.

jabberwacky: You find it amusing?

user: Very.

jabberwacky: Very funny.

user: Sarcasm?

jabberwacky: Of course!

user: We are amused.

jabberwacky: Life would be tolerable but for its amusements.

user: Now that's deep.

...

user: So, what do you think of The Tao?

jabberwacky: I haven't got any theory about that and what is your excuse?

user: Ah, a Tao Master.

jabberwacky: I'm your master...

user: Teach me then oh master. Share your wisdom.

jabberwacky: Right now?

user: Yes.

jabberwacky: Isn't that dangerous?

user: Could be, but tommorow you might get hit by a truck.

jabberwacky: Yes.

user: What is the Tao?

jabberwacky: It exists in that it does not exist.

user: Brilliant!

jabberwacky: Thanks. Your sarcasm is much appreciated. But my point is that typing typos is a distinctively human trait.

user: What is Buddhism?

jabberwacky: Buddhism is a religion. Ask Mike about it, he's a Buddhist.

user: Who was the Buddha?

jabberwacky: Myself.

user: What is Nirvana like?

jabberwacky: A rock band.
