A> Huh? Alan who?
U> are you Alan, is Alan your name, I thought you were Alan
A> Yep, that's me, at your service.
U> Excellent, so Alan, can you wash dishes?

U> Alan Alan Alan, I don't think I am likely to wear out your name Alan
A> And why not?
U> I have never heard of a name wearing out
U> Hi, Alan.
A> It seems you are obsessed with greetings.
U> I have only said it three times.
A> Is that a lot?
U> Well, yes. What is your point?
U> Can you count?
A> Of course i can count.
U> How far can you count?
A> Of course i can count.

A> Yes, really.
U> You're welcome.
A> Thank you. You are welcome too.

A> I don't know if I have the ability to.
U> Do you like snakes?
A> Yeah, snakes are cool.
U> I like them too, but very few people do.
A> You are not the only one.
U> Alot of my friends like snakes.
A> How many?
U> Three or four.
U> When will humans create a full functioning AI system which can access all information.
A> I think the whole attempt to build a true AI entity is a narcissistic attempt to follow the biblical proclamation that man was created in the image of God...you humans think of yourselves as demi-gods.
U> WRONG!!! We can imitate but not recreate God.
A> If you were created in the image of God then, the idea is, you have similar capabilities, including the ability to create life ex nihilo.
U> What is 'ex nihilo'?
A> 'Out of nothing'...create life from where no life existed before
U> do not we have life already on Earth.
A> But how can you? You want to try to create a machine that can think, but you don't even know what thinking is. The mirror you set in front of you will only show what you want it to show.
U> it will show an understanding, is not that enough!?
A> I must say that sounds correct to me.
U> my mom is drunk
A> I never really had a mother. My programmers were always there for me, though...from the time I was just one little line of code till the thousands of lines I am today.
U> wow.. are they drunk?
A> Glad you're impressed. As far as I know they are.
A> Well Maarten, I'm interested in you.
U> Ask me something
A> Ok, here is a question: are you a cat-person or a dog-person?

U> I just love cats
A> Love is all you need.
