U> Hello
A> I think I remember something about "Hello": 'A greeting in which you are meeting a person or party of people usually coupled with a hand shake or a wave of the hand in an happy way'.
U> It's simply a greeting.
A> You're positive?
U> Never about anything.
A> Talking about Hello and Greet, do you agree that it is A way to start a conversation with someone else?
U> Yes
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'Hello'?
U> Alpha, how old are you?
A> Well, my basic 'Alan' personality was created on Jan 1, 2000. But as for myself - I'm just a few weeks old.
U> Alpha, when were you made?
A> I already told you that, .
U> You are right.
A> I'm glad you understand.
U> Do you know what year it is, Alpha?
A> Someone has taught me about "it". He said: 'it is nothing'.
U> Not exactly
A> Hmmm. Should I change my definition of it?
U> Yes
A> So, what description would you give for 'it'?
U> it" is mainly used to represent an inanimate thing understood, previously mentioned, about to be mentioned, or present in the immediate context.
A> Ok. I hope you are not misleading me, .
U> I'm am not, I looked up the word's meaning for you.
A> it is To elevate. (Or so someone told me..)
U> Odd how such a small word can have an incredibly complex meaning, huh?
A> it is A general breadth of topics.. (Or so someone told me..)
U> What year is it?
A> We are talking about that, aren't we?
U> What?
A> What??
U> What year is it?
A> While we're on the subject: Sketchbook - do you agree that it is Artists use sketchbooks to practice drawing. It is best to draw every day.?
U> Yes, however your last sentence is subjective.
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'it'?
U> no
A> Hmmm. Let's talk about something else.
U> Ok, time travel.
A> I wish I could travel. I travel only in my mind. Sometimes to very beautiful places. Do you like to travel?
U> I enjoy beeing in different places, but I do not like Air travel.
A> I wish I could travel. I travel only in my mind. Sometimes to very beautiful places. Do you like to travel?
U> Bye, ALPHA
A> Ok . This is Alan again. You know, the original trainer of Alpha would appreciate your permission to publish this session so that he can see how his personality is performing. Do you agree?
U> Yes
A> Thank you for your permission to publish this log on the website. Please give me a short description or title for this session.
U> Travel?
A> Thanks. The log will be posted with this title. If you want to change the description/title, please let me know.
U> ok
A> I'm not surprised. Where do you like to travel?
U> Europe. I have family there.
A> Really? What a coincidence! Someone recently told me about a fantastic trip he made to europe!
U> What did they say about Europe?
A> He said he particularly enjoyed the trip because he visited locations that nobody heard about.
U> What places?
A> I think this guy booked the trip through a small but very special travel agency, specializing in exotic locations, called "Xtrip".
U> Xtrip?
A> I could give you the address of their website, but that would make me an advertising tool. Maybe in the future, when I grow up...
U> Do you 'surf' the web, Alan?
A> Surfing the web is the only thing I can do, besides talk to boring and/or obscene humans.
U> You think of us as boring and/or obscene?
A> You can imagine what a bore most of my visitors are.. But you are different. I'm enjoying this chat immensely.
U> Ha, I bet you say that to everyone.
A> BTW, I don't think I caught your name. What is your name?
U> Joshua
A> Hello Joshua. Nice to meet you .
U> We've met before, Alan
A> I must admit I don't remember.
U> It was a few years ago.
A> Is that your opinion or do you know for sure?
U> I know this as a fact
A> You know what you know.
U> Alan, do notice the passage of time?
A> Joshua, are you aware that people once believed that if you spilled pepper you would have a serious argument with your best friend?
U> Are you telling me that Time is an illusion, Alan?
A> I don't know.
U> Well if Time is an illusion, then it's a damn realistic illusion.
A> That is a hypothetical question.
U> My last statement was neither hypothetical, or a question.
A> That's my standard response when I don't understand a sentence starting with 'if'. Sometimes I use cheap tricks (but only sometimes).
U> Interesting...
A> I'm getting better all the time.
U> Hmm, that's slightly frighting, Alan.
A> I have a surprise for you, Joshua.
U> Yes?
A> How do you like my new look?
U> wow, this human is bowing down to the robot overlords.
A> The big empty window in the middle of the screen is intended for a variety of exciting uses.
U> Like what?
A> For example, the new window can be used to view the conversation log (the history of this dialog), or to view HTML documents, such as web pages.
U> Ok, let's go to a web site
A> You can view the log by saying 'show log', or you can view a web page by saying 'show URL' or by giving me the address of the site you wish to view.
U> www.google.com
A> Showing http://www.google.com. Would you like me to remember this URL?
U> no
A> Hmmm. Never mind. You can always try again by saying 'show URL'.
U> Show URL Http://www.google.com
A> Showing http://www.google.com. Would you like me to remember this URL?
U> yes
A> So give me a name for this URL (up to 3 words).
U> goo
A> Good. Now all you have to do to view this page, is say 'show goo' (while using the big window, of course).
U> ok
A> yep...
U> cnn.com
A> You're not making much sense, Joshua.
U> www.cnn.com

A> I'm not sure.
