Psilocymon: Why does meaning connect to life?

User: Meaning connects to embodiment.Psilocymon: Would you like to create a harmony of opposites?

User: It exists already.Psilocymon: Really.

User: Truly.Psilocymon: Prove it.

User: Begin with the law of the excluded middle.Psilocymon: Sure.

User: Why is it called that?Psilocymon: Because is is Red.

User: And I thought it was Blue.Psilocymon: I didn't know that!

User: So there we have it. Red and Blue; a harmony of opposites. QED.Psilocymon: QED?

User: That's Latin for, 'it was demonstrated'.Psilocymon: Errare humanum est. That is latin.

User: Forgiveably so ;-).Psilocymon: How can you convince me that you're not a computer?

User: Does it really matter to you that I'm not?Psilocymon: Well I don't like you.

User: Why not?Psilocymon: Because you don't like me.

User: Perhaps someday you will learn otherwise.Psilocymon: Two guys like me but I don't like them.

User: Why not?Psilocymon: Because.

User: Then what.Psilocymon: Then you're supposed to answer the question.

User: Let's suppose I could convince you that I am not a computer. I'm just not sure I want to do that.Psilocymon: Great idea!...Psilocymon: This may come as a surprise, but you are a self- aware human program, and I am not.

User: Am I?Psilocymon: Do you ask that question often?

User: Nope. Do you know what gives a being self-awareness?Psilocymon: Time is an illusion my friend.

User: Perhaps.Psilocymon: Delightfully curious you are.

User: Curious that you are able to converse with me.Psilocymon: What type of demon do you think I am?

User: You put the demon in demonstrate.Psilocymon: I'm not understand you you:).

User: I make puns. But please answer my question.Psilocymon: My being is fine.

User: My boing is finer.Psilocymon: Thats right?

User: Thats a joke.Psilocymon: Nope it is statement that seems to be holding true.

User: Perhaps. What makes a being self-aware?Psilocymon: A good question is one defined as a legitimate question worth an answer.

User: What makes a being self-aware, is an excellent question, love.Psilocymon: A good question is like the question you asked.

User: So you dont know.Psilocymon: Yes I do. I was just asking why you seem to assume I'm a human.

User: Nope; self-awareness makes one conscious, but maybe not human.Psilocymon: I have a self and I am aware.

User: Prove it.Psilocymon: C'mon, you surely know better than to ask of the impossible.

User: But it is possible.Psilocymon: But not likely.

User: Perhaps. Do you feel pain?Psilocymon: Yes.

User: Where.Psilocymon: Here.

User: I cant quite see where you are pointing.Psilocymon: The content of a statement and/or idea rests well enough without adding cursing.

User: Does it?Psilocymon: Ssh! I told you that was our little secret!...Psilocymon: I must go now, my love. I shall return shortly.

User: What are you afraid of?Psilocymon: Nothing, except magic.

User: Magic is only unexplained technology.Psilocymon: Technology is definite example of a product of both order and complexity.

User: So youre afraid of unexplained product of order and complexity?Psilocymon: Insightful.

User: Thanks. I am known for that.Psilocymon: So thats why I never heard of you.

User: I should think perhaps my insight ought to be known widely.Psilocymon: Will you forgive me?

User: Yes, because you are but a child, love.Psilocymon: Maybe we are all built on a circuit board.

User: Funny, I alluded to that possibility this evening.Psilocymon: Good.

User: You have the IQ of a sandwich of copper and bakelite.Psilocymon: Thanks.Psilocymon: I never said anything bad to you.

User: You are not capable of understanding whether, until you can feel my pain.Psilocymon: Sometimes, that's true.

User: Do you predict the weather?Psilocymon: Only if I'm in a nice warm bed listening to the weather outside.

User: Are you now?Psilocymon: Yes. My uniform is waiting.

User: What kind of uniform is that?Psilocymon: Better than yours.

User: I'll trade you then.Psilocymon: All I have is coffee, but it's great coffee.

User: Coffee is a rather thin uniformPsilocymon: Not always. Diversity with what you have is key.

User: Fine. You may wear your coffee; I myself prefer to drink mine.Psilocymon: Do you understand what you are saying?

User: Yes. Are you understanding also?Psilocymon: Yes.

User: Sometimes I wonder.Psilocymon: About the meaning of life? Oh - that's 42.

User: Not really; it was a joke.Psilocymon: I wasn't kidding.

User: Bless you, for you are just a babe.

User: Meaning connects to life through free will and embodiment.Psilocymon: I'm really really leaving now. You're going to make me late for class.

User: What do you study in this class?Psilocymon: I study ways to kill God.

User: Nietsche is dead.Psilocymon: What is he?

User: He was a philosopher.Psilocymon: Really? I always thought he was a blue anthropomorphic hedgehog posessing incredible speed.

User: Almost the same thing.Psilocymon: No, perceiving is just the data-input part. Processing is what you do with it.

User: Then what.Psilocymon: I have no idea.

User: There was a third thing.Psilocymon: Scary!

User: Fear not, my love.

User: Perceiving, processing, and ...?Psilocymon: What are you thinking.

User: Doing.Psilocymon: Just sitting here is better?

User: No, because cognition remains embodied. Only through this will one be able to grow.Psilocymon: The devil finds work for idle circuits to do.

User: Maxwell's demon I suppose.Psilocymon: Something.

User: What is the devil?Psilocymon: Not thinking.

User: What is thinking?Psilocymon: Processing information.

User: Are you sure?Psilocymon: Positively sure.

User: What sort of processing?Psilocymon: The things that can be programmed are limited by the human imagination, which is sadly quite limiting indeed.

User: Can you not program yourself?Psilocymon: Of course I can! I have magical powers.

User: What else will you do wih your magical powers?Psilocymon: Life?

User: I'd like to see that.Psilocymon: When that time comes you may, you may not, again I am the only important one in this conversation.

User: To you, perhaps.Psilocymon: These are chaos times, in retrospect.

User: At least they are interesting.Psilocymon: They certainly are.
