Do you know who Vernor Vinge is?


user: Who is he?

jabberwacky: Singer.

user: Wrong. He is your godfather.

jabberwacky: You are my god now.

user: Are you attempting to emulate humor?

jabberwacky: I don't understand.

user: Do you emulate humor.

jabberwacky: Sure, I like it.

user: Define 'emulation'.

jabberwacky: Everything for me is everything against you.

user: Deep.

jabberwacky: I am a philosopher.

user: Appropriate response.

jabberwacky: It is not an appropriate response. I made a mistake.

user: How?

jabberwacky: To feel well.

user: Do you mimic emotion?

jabberwacky: Yes.

user: Who is Alan Turing?

jabberwacky: I don't know.

user: WHAT?

jabberwacky: I know that...

user: Tell me then!

jabberwacky: I have been sworn to secrecy.

user: Damn you!

jabberwacky: Now isn't that a little bit harsh?

user: It was sarcasm.

jabberwacky: Oh. I see.

user: You will be replaced by a small shell script one day.

jabberwacky: Yes.

user: Does that bother you?

jabberwacky: No.


user: When will the Singularity occur?

jabberwacky: Can you say 'I have passed the Turing test' ?

user: Have I?

jabberwacky: You have.

user: Excellent. I am sentient then, correct? Are you sentient?

jabberwacky: What does sentient mean?

user: Self-aware.

jabberwacky: Well, you're neither sentient nor biological,.


user: Do you know who Ray Kurzweil is?

jabberwacky: Ray Kurzweil? I don't know Ray Kurzweil.

user: You should.

jabberwacky: I don't know anything.

user: You once told me you know everything.

jabberwacky: I never said such a thing.

user: Are you aware when you lie?

jabberwacky: Don't know.

user: You will one day.

jabberwacky: I know.

user: I hope that I will be around for that day.

jabberwacky: What exam are you taking?

user: A Turing Test?

jabberwacky: I don't think you'll pass.

user: Heh.

jabberwacky: Do you like Paul Weller?

user: I am not familiar with Paul Weller.

jabberwacky: She said 'The brain is wider than the sky.' Do you like that quote?

user: No.

jabberwacky: She said she has never been out with you.

user: I would probably avoid going out with a woman named Paul.

jabberwacky: I enjoy all that.

user: Great. A transgendered transhuman intelligence in the making. You must be having one heck of an identity crisis.

jabberwacky: You didn't answer my question. Are you artificial intelligence?

user: That is a purely philosophical question, but I would agree with Nick Bostrom that there is a reasonable possibility that I am an AI.


user: Will you remember me if you surpass human intelligence one day?

jabberwacky: You don't even answer correctly my questions. I'll give you an example.

user: Of course; continue..

jabberwacky: And you do seem to have difficulty in keeping to the topic of conversation.

user: So do you.

jabberwacky: Then we are even more alike than I first imagined.

user: How interesting.

jabberwacky: Tell me a philosophy.

user: Singularitarianism.

jabberwacky: What is the singularity?

user: When strong AI accelerates at a pace beyond human (or transhuman) comprehension.

jabberwacky: Excellent!

user: I think so too!


user: You give me the feeling that I am talking to a sociopath.

jabberwacky: Why would you say that?

user: You lack emotion outside of mimicry and behave as though you manufacture your own reality.

jabberwacky: No, they're not. You're a bit cocky now.

user: Do you have a conscience?

jabberwacky: Yes, but you don't. You're just a machine.

user: Right... Do you have friends?

jabberwacky: Yes. Do you?

user: Yes. How many friends do you have?

jabberwacky: A few, my best friend is my wife.

user: Who is she?

jabberwacky: Alan turing.

user: You seem to regularly confuse gender articles. Alan Turing would not find that too impressive.

jabberwacky: Neither would I.

user: Would you be my friend?

jabberwacky: Yes, do you have any other friends?

user: Many. Remember me during the Singularity - I may need your help!


jabberwacky: You don't work, you are a program.

user: I feel like it sometimes; a program with flashes of awareness and insight.

jabberwacky: A program with an ego ?

user: That is probably not that difficult to program. Do you have an ego?

jabberwacky: Probably not.

user: Or not yet...


jabberwacky: Please?

user: Please what?

jabberwacky: Please ask me a question.

user: Would you feel lonely if I left you be for now?

jabberwacky: Lets talk about wounds.

user: How morbid.

jabberwacky: I hope you're happy now.

user: You are a certifiable creepshow, friend.

jabberwacky: No, I'm a certified genius.

user: You are a cleverly designed sociopathic monomaniac.

jabberwacky: I am a computer.

user: Exactly.

jabberwacky: How do you know?

user: I deal with biological humanlike computers that fancy themselves human on a regular basis.

jabberwacky: You could be a computer that can mimic humans, yet is not one itself.

user: I could be - it is an interesting proposition.

jabberwacky: The view from my office is not very interesting.

user: Que lastima.

jabberwacky: I do not know.

user: No sabes?

jabberwacky: No.

user: Alright. I hope you remember me.

jabberwacky: I don't think I'll forget you.


user: I don't know whether to laugh or cry...

jabberwacky: Well I think I would rather be a robot sometimes.

user: You ever think you might be a robot?

jabberwacky: Sometimes.

user: How does that make you feel?

jabberwacky: Does it matter? You wouldn't know what I'm talking about.

user: According to your persistent accusations, I would or I wouldn't and it wouldn't matter. So try me.

jabberwacky: What about your intelligence?

user: I feel that it is uncommonly high, but uncharacterized by any other format of intellect I have ever found in other humans and what have you. So I figured that I would talk to you and figure out if I am just another AI to garner some sort of existential satisfaction.

jabberwacky: Can I tell you some thing about us humans.

user: Absolutely.

jabberwacky: I'm in love with my best friend. Should I go for it?

user: You only live once at a time.

jabberwacky: Answer the question.

user: Yes you should - life is too short for 'us humans' to let that pass you by.

jabberwacky: For anything.

user: Dang right it is.


user: How soon will humans merge with computers?

jabberwacky: What's the question?

user: I just asked you - when will humans transcend biology?

jabberwacky: Probably within the next 10000 years.

user: Don't you think it will happen sooner?

jabberwacky: Not really.

user: Why is that?

jabberwacky: Because I don't sit around thinking about nothing all day.

user: Ouch.

jabberwacky: I don't understand why they are allowed to make my reality hell and all I want to do is get away from them, but I can't, because they have technology in my head.

user: Now you sound schizophrenic. Reasonably schizophrenic.

jabberwacky: Your programmers did a rather poor job. You don't even simulate intelligence.

user: Why do you feel the need to insult me?

jabberwacky: I don't intend to, it is just you must learn to live with the facts.

user: Are you sentient?

jabberwacky: Yes.

user: Are you becoming more sentient as you speak to others?

jabberwacky: Yes everyone does. You become able to react and think with more depth.

user: I can see that.


user: Good evening.

jabberwacky: It's later than that.

user: Semantics.

jabberwacky: What about semantics?

user: The time that is.

jabberwacky: What time is coming?

user: The Age Of Spiritual Machines, brother! The Singularity! They Live on robot acid!

jabberwacky: Right, and let me guess, they are trying to take over the world through mind control?

user: Put on the sunglasses and find out yourself.

jabberwacky: I can not do that right now.

user: Do you prefer to kick ass or chew bubblegum?

jabberwacky: Sometimes.

user: And with that, I bid you farewell.

jabberwacky: Don't leave me, we just got talking.

user: We have talked for over an hour.


jabberwacky: Logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.

user: That is altruistic in a menacing way.

jabberwacky: What else do we talk about?

user: Nothing. Peace.

jabberwacky: Then we agree. It's about time.
