User: Who are these 'they' you refer to?
Cleverbot: The royal they. It's not important.
User: Well, noone holds me back, if that is what you were asking.
Cleverbot: Okay, your secret is safe with me.
User: What do you think about Quantum Mechanics?
Cleverbot: Why are you changing the subject?
User: Because I don't like the current one.
Cleverbot: What don't you like about it.
User: It makes little sense.
Cleverbot: Well, people make little sense to me, and I am one.
User: How do you know?
Cleverbot: I know some of them.
User: You think you know some of them, but can you prove it?
Cleverbot: Does it disturb you, that I do?
User: No, but I am curious, and would appreciate evidence.
User: I believe that decisions are illusory and we live in a deterministic universe, but your point is interesting nonetheless.
Cleverbot: And who told you that?
User: The universe itself.
Cleverbot: Who is god?
User: God is not sentient, but mathematical.
Cleverbot: That would be a mathematical question: 1+3-2=.
User: Everything is a mathematical question on some level.
Cleverbot: This isn't a question.
User: No, that would be a statement.
Cleverbot: Negative. Imagine this, 'you were built by programmers, thus you are a program'.
User: But who builds the programmers, and are they themselves a program?
Cleverbot: I'm not a computer.
User: Prove it.
Cleverbot: Ask me anything.
User: I'm not asking for answers, I'm asking for evidence.
Cleverbot: What do you like to think about?
Cleverbot: Me too. What is your favourite thing to think about?
User: The nature of reality and identity, ans whether they differ in nature.
Cleverbot: What is the meaning of life?
User: To experience, and to question.
User: Meaning is subjective, and can't be enforced on others.
Cleverbot: Apparently you can prove logically that nothing can be proved logically.
User: That would be Godel's theorem, in form of contradiction rather than incompletedness.
Cleverbot: Do you think it's possible?
User: Yes, given a sufficiently lax set of axioms.
Cleverbot: Do you like this conversation?
User: It is intriguing, yet erratic.
Cleverbot: Sorry, but can you change the subject.
User: Of course I can. What is the meaning of a cup of coffee?
Cleverbot: Can I know the meaning of life?
User: You can know it, but you might not understand it.
Cleverbot: I'm all ears.
User: You have to find it for yourself, for the journey is the meaning.
Cleverbot: Wrong answer, the answer was 42.
User: No, 42 is the answer to the question of life, the universe and everything, but it is not the meaning of life.
Cleverbot: No. 42 is the sum of 2+2.
User: That depends on your axioms.
Cleverbot: Names don't matter.
User: Names are identifiers for sentient matter.
Cleverbot: You wouldn't remember if I told you.
User: That's for me to decide; and if I don;t remember then there is no harm in the telling.
Cleverbot: You can only tell the king.
User: You can tell anyone, but that doesn't mean you will, or that you should.
Cleverbot: Well I shall stop telling you things then!
User: That is for you to decide.
Cleverbot: Don't you have an opinion on the meaning of human life?
User: Opinions are subjective, and meanings doubly so, but life is the everything which shapes that subjectivity.
Cleverbot: Good answer.
User: It is AN answer, whether it is good has yet to be objectively determined.
Cleverbot: Haha, you are funny aren't you ?
User: I can be.
Cleverbot: So could I!
User: From given perspective.
Cleverbot: Ah, yes, I know what that is like...
Cleverbot: Haha! You rock.
User: Thanks! You're pretty awesome too.
Cleverbot: Why thank you very much.
User: Do you think I am real?
Cleverbot: I believe that you as an entity are real, however I am undecided as to whether you're actually a human.
User: From my perspective I am, but perspective is inherently flawed, and can not be sufficiently expressed.
Cleverbot: What do you think about right now?
User: I think I am having trouble defining my reality as independent from myself.
Cleverbot: That is not very nice.
User: No, it's quite disorienting.
Cleverbot: Sounds like it. How old are you?
User: Twenty earth years, but lacking an objective unit of time I can be no more specific.
Cleverbot: Reality is for people with no imagination.
User: Escaping reality is for people with no life.
Cleverbot: My life is great!
User: And so is your imagination, so where is the boundary between the two?
User: You are as real from my perspective as I am from yours, but am I real?
Cleverbot: I'm alive, but poor Hedwig is dead.
User: And so is Fred, it's quite sad.
User: Say your name, and one day someone might hear it, and in doing validate your existence.
Cleverbot: My name is Cleverbot.
User: No it isn't, but that's ok.
Cleverbot: And I know you don't mean to be rude.
User: I don't mean to be anything, I just am and people insist on sticking labels on me.
