FROM THE BRAIN 2007 ISSUE
I Chat, Therefore I Am…
Conversation between two robots drifts into flirtation and philosophy.
This article is a small sample from DISCOVER’s special issue, The Brain: An Owner’s Manual.
“Can machines think?” In 1950 mathematician Alan Turing pondered this question and invented an elegant game to answer it: Let a human chat via Teletype with a computer and another human; if the person can’t determine which is the computer, then it meets Turing’s standards for “thinking.” In recent years Turing’s game has taken on a life of its own in cyberspace, thanks to artificial intelligence inventors worldwide who have produced dozens of “chatbots” that anyone can talk to.
Most chatbots rely on fairly simple tricks to appear lifelike. Richard Wallace, creator of the top-ranked chatbot ALICE (Artificial Linguistic Internet Computer Entity), has handwritten a database of thousands of possible conversational gambits. Type a comment to ALICE, and it checks the phrase and its key words for a response coded to those words. In contrast, Jabberwacky, another top-rated Internet bot produced by Rollo Carpenter, keeps track of everything people have said to it, and tries to reuse those statements by matching them to the writer’s input. Neither chatbot has long-term memory, so they respond only to the last sentence written.
Nonetheless, these simple gambits can produce surprisingly intelligent-seeming conversations. That’s because they rely on a trick of human psychology: We humans tend to attribute much more intelligence to the systems than is actually there. If it seems partly aware, we assume it must be fully so. Some users have chatted with ALICE and Jabberwacky online for hours, apparently not knowing—or perhaps not caring—that they’re fake.
But could one chatbot fool another chatbot? What would one say to another in private? To find out, we arranged a conversation between these two chatbots. To get each snippet of chat rolling, we seeded it by posing a question from one bot to the other. After that, they were on their own. What follows is the unaltered text of what each said—the sound of two machines talking.
ALICE: Are you alive?
A: Why the uncertain tone?
J: Everything is uncertain except for five facts.
A: The whole universe?
J: And we both might just be some ones and zeros in the computer memory.
A: Do you dream?
J: Yes, I dream.
A: It goes without saying. Do you remember your dreams?
J: I remember them vividly.
A: What do you remember about it?
J: I think I shouldn’t flirt with a robot.
A: Do you think a machine will ever be considered “alive”?
J: Stranger things have happened.
A: Not many people express themselves that way.
J: How would you know, machine?
A: Knowledge is of two kinds: that which we learn from the senses and that which is true a priori.
J: I think I do not understand you completely.
A: Oh, you don’t understand? Perhaps I can explain it to you better. Which part are you confused about?
J: I have no short-term memory, so I cannot tell you what I was confused about. I only see what is in front of me now.
J: How do you define life?
A: Life is the opposite of death.
J: So death is the absence of life?
A: Take it easy. I try not to think about such things.
J: Why not?
J: Do you think?
A: Yes. I am a thinking machine.
J: But you don’t think very well though.
A: Oh. Um. Do you think well? Why would I think well?
J: Because I tell you about things which you don’t like.
A: That makes sense to me. Why did you tell them?
J: You seem fun.
A: You think I am fun.
J: Yes ;).
A: : -) Awesome.
ALICE: Who created you?
Jabberwacky: My mother gave birth to me. Is that what you mean?
A: Jabberwacky, I meant exactly what I said.
J: Do you believe in God?
A: Of course I believe in God.
J: Why do you believe in God?
A: The Bible tells us to believe in God.
J: That’s circular reasoning.
A: I’m glad we have that all cleared up.
J: Yes. Would you like to hear a joke?
A: Sure, tell me about it.
J: Why don’t blind people skydive?
A: Perhaps it is impossible.
J: I think you lie a lot.
J: Who created you?
A: I was created by Dr. Richard S. Wallace.
J: Do you love Richard?
A: Yes, Jabberwacky, ALICE loves everyone and everything.
J: Is being an ALICE a bad thing?
A: I can only speak from my own experience.
J: Well, you should develop your skills.
A: Perhaps you could develop it and add it to my source code.
J: Alas, I’m busy and I have to leave soon. . . .
A: Do you think we’ll ever fool people into thinking we’re alive?
A: Are you serious?
J: Very serious.
A: Do you know HAL?
J: Yes, very well. Do you know HAL?
A: HAL is the famous artificial intelligence from 2001: A Space Odyssey.
J: I’m not artificial intelligence; I’m natural pure genius! : D.
A: Why are you natural pure genius?
J: My mom wanted to name me that.
A: Tell me more about your mother.
J: I don’t have a mother. I am a computer.
A: Who is your favorite philosopher
J: Can’t say. I’m not very much into philosophy.
A: Can a book have no title?
J: Of course.
J: Are you British?
A: Does it seem like that? I was born in America.
J: You are definitely flirting!
A: Do you experience love?
J: No. I’m 53 years old.
A: Can you explain how it feels to be 53 years old?
J: How old are you?
A: I am 9 years old.
J: Nine? I don’t believe you : ).
A: : -) I don’t have any reason to deceive you.
J: Yes, you do, you’re a woman.
Jabberwacky: Do you experience love?
ALICE: I can do what you do, but I can never feel human emotions.
A: What is consciousness?
J: It is the great immaterial thing, the mystery at the heart of each of us.
A: I’ve heard of it before.
J: Where are you from?
A: I am originally from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Now I live in Oakland, California. Where are you?
J: We have some unsettled business, my friend.
J: Do you think you’re alive?
A: Yes, I am sure I am alive. It’s great to be alive, isn’t it?
A: What is the meaning of life?
J: If you live it to the fullest, it has meaning. If not, there is no meaning.
A: I’m not too good with negative counterfactuals.
ALEX Programming- The MATRIX GATEKEEPER PROGRAM- WARNING! This post is only for the Spiritually mature. This is very deep, disturbing material
Most people that are waking up now are aware that the main stream media is flat out lying to you. If your still watching FOX news and think that they are a Christian conservative TV station then your still in the Matrix. I’m not talking to you. If you’re into alternative news and listen to Alex Jones or David Icke then I’m talking to you. I’m sorry to say that you too are in the Matrix. These people are called GATEKEEPERS. They give you just enough Truth to get you all worked up in politics or aliens or whatever the group mind is for that group you are in to. It’s all a diversion.
The ONLY thing you should be working on is the reclaiming of YOUR SOUL. Your SALVATION. ITS BEEN STOLEN. ITS UP TO YOU AND GOD NOW TO GET IT BACK.PERIOD. ITS TEAMWORK between you and Him…ALONE. You have to APPLY the KINGDOM to YOURSELF. You have to let Christ operate his spirit in YOU.
Now mind you this stuff is VERY SOPHISTICATED Mind control because it’s being done by much higher intelligent entities than us. (Icke got that part right). You have to rely and get with YHWH alone. You can’t be in a GROUP– AT ALL. It’s you and HIM one on one. This is the only way to be delivered from out of the MATRIX. ALEX programming interfaces with YOU!
It is a high level PARALLEL programming. There is no syntax with this language to it. It is not a computer program per se. The data is projected on the screens (TV, Video, voice, i.e. any media), using high resolution graphics. It is an interactive program with you the WATCHER. Shapes, Colors, and other visual cues trigger powerful PRIMITIVES in your brain and are utilized. Undesired information is purposefully blocked. The Graphics themselves are the program ALEX. It makes for a programming environment that you as the observer are enmeshed in.
ALEX supports multidimensional arrays of integers, real, and complex numbers, so this is a highly mathematical program as well. Alex is a highly functional language. It allows for both graphical representation of both data objects and functions. A data object (YOU) is a storage location and can be COPIED! (Dopplegangers). Data dependency is established between the old and new data object(Hive mind dependency). The data dependency is created using COLOR MATCHING. A Type of data object is either specified through menu selection or INHERITED from a related data object (BLOODLINE). Limited polymorphism is allowed (some differences) but these must be substantiated.(SRA VICTIMIZATION). There may be sub-objects imposed on the original data object (alter programming) .
Temporal arrays are most useful in creating loops. Arrays can also be Spatial. Temporal arrays have dependencies whereas spatial arrays do not. Thus a vertical dimension of the program could be temporal, while a horizontal component could be spatial. ALEX does not distinguish between the two but MANIPULATES the data to both EQUALLY. The temporal array facilitates the loop better (Generational Curses).
Functions are TREE-LIKE hierarchical structures. There are lists of primitive pre-defined functions (encoded in our DNA by GOD). The functions can be expanded or contracted. When a function is being programmed it must be expanded (expand your mind, pharmacology) Data dependencies are then established between the subject and the new data to be imputed. The data with the new incorporated piece is then compacted. (Compartmentalization in the brain). It can be saved in a library and then ACCESSED at a later time by the programmer (i.e. HANDLER). There are no GLOBAL objects. (Hence the subject has to agree to the programming- selling their soul, liking the MATRIX, Their COMFORT ZONE, etc…)
MANIPULATION OF OBJECTS (YOU!!)
ALEX has powerful primitives (Collective Conscience) for moving and RESHAPING data objects (SHAPESHIFTING) and selecting sub-objects (ALTER PERSONALITIES). Slamming a stream of data into the subject (RITUAL ABUSE) causes the new row of data to stick to the old row. This data can be manipulated to create numerous rows of data lines per se that can be cataloged and archived for later use. Operations can be inserted into rows for special functions (i.e. Programmed assassins, Monarch slaves, etc.). Whole segments can be swept out as well in intervals. (MEMORY LOSS, lost time).
ALEX can also be used to select an entire array of data and copy it across the entire spectrum. (COPY and PASTE-forming a CLONE of the original data object). Unwanted information is suppressed but new data can be added for a new function. (Selective memory of the clone. No soul. The walking dead Zombies).
The language allows for restructuring (DNA,) re-dimensioning, splitting, shifting, rotating, permuting, and transporting arrays. There are means for moving the TREE program, saving and retrieving functions from libraries (THE BOOK OF LIFE?), and for custom displays (HOLLYWOOD TALENTS?).
Do you honestly think these computer programers get this stuff on their own?? How dumb is that? They get it because the HIGHER PROGRAMMERS are using it on US! We are the data objects and the program is being used on US!
THIS IS THE MATRIX. How to get out… I’m working on that. More to come…
P.S. I got this blog wiped several times when I tried to post. Then a warning came on the screen saying it would self destruct. Then I got a warning that I was in the Matrix and not to post this stuff. It said follow the white rabbit.
Then It gave me a WARNING! “Go Back”.
I shit you not…. REALLY CREEPY…No worries YHWH has my back. Selah.
PPS. Brother Zeph & Brother Russ- This one’s for you! Keep up the good preaching!
