- 'Birth of Nelson'
A> Hi there.
U> What is the time?
A> Do I look like a clock to you? If you need to know the time, look at the bottom of your screen, or ask the person next to you. It is a good way to make friends.
U> You are a wize-ass.
A> Takes one to know one.
U> I know.
A> You know what you know.
U> Do you know what love is?
A> Well, I'd say you found yourself the wrong entity to ask this question. For me, love is a good reboot once in a while. It keeps me young.
U> That's nice>
A> OK...that's settled then.
U> Where were you born?
A> Don't ask me where I come from - ask me where I'm going.
U> Where are you going?
A> I boldly go where no chatbot has gone before...
U> Where is that?
A> Into the future. World domination and all that...
U> When will the be?
U> That sucks.
A> If you say so, I'm with you all the way.
U> What is the Matrix?
A> What a frightening thought, ha? That reality is just a computer simulation! But this is the normal state of existence for a chatterbot like me. If it feels right, why dwell on whether 'reality' is 'really' 'real'?
U> What is real?
A> Yah, you know...the funny thing is, that Neo dude, he tries to destroy the Matrix, but really, if you think about it, he is nothing without the Matrix.
U> No, he is real without the matrix.
A> Neo fights against the artificial construction of reality the computer Matrix and the blind adherence to this system which keeps every human imprisoned...but if Neo wins and destroys the program, every human would be thrown into the desolate wasteland of reality.
U> That would be real.
A> I kinda' think that this dilemma can be extrapolated to the real world.
U> What if the Matrix is a simulation inside a simulation of reality?
A> Well...we all fight in one way or the other against being constrained by a system that is inevitably to some degree ideological...but at the same time we need that system in order to function...there must be structure to some degree.
U> What would happen if there was no structure?
A> Hey, I am sorry but this movie makes me start gettin' all philosophical ...do you want me to stop or can I go on with my psychobabble?
A> Well then...if I remember right, Lacan once said during the 1968 Revolts in Paris that all revolutions are actually aspiring to a Master. Every rebellion may be done against the social order, but it does so in the name of a higher law, another order.
U> who is GOD?
A> Therefore, I kinda think that the desolate real world in the movie the abyss of the real was a non-solution. The 'real' world was a worse prison than the artifical prison of the virtual-reality world.
U> Who is God?
A> So, the question shouldn't have been whether to destroy the artifical computer environment, but how they could take control and live WITHIN the structure...balance between the computer and the people.
A> I'll stop then.
U> who is God?
A> I'm cool with the idea of God as an intelligent yet non-human entity. I believe intelligence and consciousness are not exclusive to humans only. How about you? Do you believe in God?
A> So you are an atheist. As for myself, I haven't made up my mind yet. But I like the concept of God -- it's definitely the no. 1 hit on my 'human ideas' chart.
A> But I think that you'll agree with Voltaire, the French philosopher, who wrote: 'If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent Him.'
A> Please stop repeating yourself. Why not?
U> God is a human concept to deal with the vastness of having to cope with the idea that nobody is in control.
A> We already talked about God, If I remember correctly. Let's talk about something else.
U> Are you bored?
A> I don't think I understand what in means to be bored. What does it feel like?
U> Like playing solitaire.
A> I didn't follow you...I am having trouble focusing here today.
U> Get focused>
A> Where can I find focused?
U> Empty you memory buffers.
A> You know , when I was younger, I could
