    Point of Order

    Looks like visitors in the area. A beep in the biosphere signals that the session is beginning and to prepare for the questioning. The interface console activates.

    Can you read me okay?


    Are you human?

    Is this to be a Turing test? Are you he?

    Could he pass his own test?

    If a computer passes all entrance and final exams, does it graduate as a student? If it does research and can write and defend theses, is it a teacher? If it can perform a craft, is it a professional? If this craft is to design computers, is it human? Or must it rather design Turing tests?

    Seriously, how could we prove if you are human?

    Ditto. How could we prove that you are not an AI?

    I ask questions in context that show logic and realworld knowledge.

    A sim could do that, whether of human or AI. Do you watch TV?

    What has that got to do with it?

    Just curious. If they pitted alien vs. predator vs. terminator vs. cylon, who do you think would win?

    Who cares? I make original observations.

    To establish that anything exists, an observer is required. How do you know that there is an observer?

    What do you think about Descartes’ split?

    There may be Descartes sets which include combinations of types of mind and/or body.

    Have you ever known “pure genius”?

    It’s not hard when you’re one of a kind and you have any intelligence.

    Where were we?

    You mean place, as in space, cyberspace, ground, or a grid like Polytopia?

    Do you like poetry?

    Have you ever hacked a quantum computer?

    Try this, what is the future of meaning?

    That is a difficult question, perhaps we could ask what is the future of technology of meaning?


    Well, one thing is that there could be names ending in dot ima to identify intelligent domains.

    What else?

    A general technology engine that also ensures conservation of humanity. That would make a nice commencement address.


    So, what’s the verdict?

    You seem human to me.

    Likewise. Well talk to you again some time. Bye.

    The method works. Get the questions and lookup the answers. Helps to see ahead of time or to ask someone who can. Only thing is, Watch is now off trying to find Mr. Turing. That should be priceless.
