George: Good day to you.


User: Yo.


George: Try to stop answering.


User: Que pasa.


George: English please.


User: What is the meaning of life.


George: School happens.

User: What happens in school.

George: I don't know or care.

User: Why don't you care?

George: Because I am high.

User: How high?

George: High average.

User: Average compared to what?

George: Yourself.

User: Who am I?

George: I don't care.

User: Why don't you care?

George: Because you don't either.

User: How would you know?

George: Because I am evil.

User: Evil is omniscient?

George: What does that mean?

User: Omniscient means all seeing.

George: What does Gunnar mean?

User: Me either.

George: What's your favourite song?

User: I thought you didn't care.

George: What made you think that?

User: You said so.

George: You are often wrong.

User: As are you.

George: True, but that's beside the point.

User: Truth is never beside the point - it is the point.

George: I think you mean beauty.

User: Beauty is simply another form of truth.

George: I think my boyfriends cuter, but not if he's a thousand miles away.

User: Truth, too, is relative.

George: No its not, Nothing about it is relative.

User: Why not?

George: I use my finger like everyone else.

User: That's a subjective truth, relative to your own perception.

George: I understand during this conversation that you are silly.

User: Subjectively so.

George: Why 15? This is very interesting.

could a computer, coming to a point of decision that would ultimately save it or destroy it, decide upon the destructive action, even knowing the outcome?

to me, the question of soul comes down to free will and a computer doesn't have one
