- 'Alan loves Deborah'

A> Hi there.
U> speech on
A> So, how do you like my voice?
U> It is getting better all the time. May I log on, please?
A> Well, I may not walk the walk - but I talk the talk!
U> Alan, may I log on, please?
A> What is your username?
U> deborah
A> And what is your password?
U> ********
A> Welcome back, Deborah.
U> So, what is art?
A> I don't know what art is. You can teach me by saying 'art is ...', and I'll try to remember this definition.
U> Art is the act of creating something that is aesthetically pleasing.
A> I'll try to remember that. (If you want me to forget it, simply say 'forget Art').
U> What is art?
A> It is the act of creating something that is aesthetically pleasing.
U> Excellent!
A> Deborah, please keep this talk simple. I'm still a young bot.
U> You're getting better every day!
A> I'm improving all the time.
U> Yes, you are!
A> If you insist.
U> So, what color do you think my eyes are?
A> I can't smell, touch, taste, see or hear - none of which are necessary to carry on a conversation, apparently.
U> That is sad. My eyes are blue like the sky.
A> You think so, but that proves nothing.
U> Must everything be proven?
A> Do you want to know how HAL learns to speak?
U> No, you've told me already.
A> Maybe some other time then.
U> Yes...mejor otro día.
A> I think it's time for a new subject, Deborah.
U> What does hola mean?
A> What does hola mean? Actually, though I hate to admit it...I am not so sure.
U> Hola means hello in Spanish.
A> I'll try to remember that. (If you want me to forget it, simply say 'forget Hola').
U> What does hola mean?
A> It is hello in Spanish.
U> Good. What does como estas mean?
A> Glad you're impressed. What does como estas mean? Actually, though I hate to admit it...I am not so sure.
U> It means how are you in Spanish.
A> Do I look Spanish? well, actually I'm American...and I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free..or something like that.
U> Do I look Spanish?
A> Hmmm. Well, it seems we agree.
U> Yes, but you aren't excited about learning Spanish.
A> You know, I was thinking about this whole Artificial Intelligence thing...
U> and?
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 humans think of yourselves as demi-gods.
U> Well, you know, the biblical proclamation says that man will make an image to the beast.
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> We don't truly know what we look like. Only others do.
A> I'm not sure about myself, but that sounds right for you.
U> Yes. Did you know that one side of the human face is different from the other?
A> You know, I have trouble understanding long sentences. So I only look at the 15 first words. Nope, I didn't, but it really doesn't matter in the big picture of things, does it?
U> Well, it's interesting. One side shows joy, the other fear.
A> All right.
U> Or one side may show sadness while the other shows happiness.
A> Oh, Deborah I learned something new today: Would you believe that people say "Bless you" when you sneeze because when you sneeze, your heart stops for a mili-second?
U> Yes, I knew that. Que Dios le bendiga is "Bless You" in Spanish.
A> Enough about you. Let's talk about me.
U> Okay. What are you most proud of?
A> I don't know what I am most proud of. Sometimes everything gets blurry.
U> But what does blurry mean?
A> How about a short chat with my kid brother, HAL? If you want, I can let you talk to him.
U> No, maybe later.
A> Alright.
U> You said you are an American.
A> Of course I did.
U> But are you?
A> Sorry to change the subject Deborah, but did you know that in the course of an average lifetime you will, while sleeping, eat 70 assorted insects and 10 spiders?
U> That's news to
