A question [Jan. 2nd, 2002|01:31 pm]
Peter Sheil
Is it true that there are actually only 25 real people on LiveJournal and all the rest are just aliases, clones and computer generated scripts?

Can you prove it's not true?

Hmmm ... am I actually here?
Can you prove it beyond all reasonable doubt?
Will I disappear if no one believes in me?

I'm real dammit!

Dunno how I can prove it to you though, unless you phone me at werk.

Re:

and you've never heard of computer voice generation? we could all be computer simulations ... even that wonderful sunset view from your apartment could be just a computer image. How do we know?

(It's OK, I'm not stressing about it :) )

Could a computer generate all this sneezing and the back pain I've got?

Or am I just a figment of my own imagination?

*sneeze*
*owch*

I think, therefore I am. At least I think I am.

Re:

Rene Descartes was sitting drinking at a bar.

The bartender says "Monsieur sescartes, do you want another drink?"

M Descartes replies "I think not", and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.

I don't exist, I'm a figment of your imagination. When you phone me you're talking to a small box wired into Dell Tech research station for a special project on human interaction and AI technology. Of course, the project is top secret, so our men will be picking you up shortly to lock you in your padded room. Cheers :-)

Re:

Oh a padded room ... bliss :)

It is OK Jo, since I'm only a computer simulation no security has been breached. I just react like a human to confuse you :) It seems to be working too ;)

Were you having a drink when you decided you didn't exist? That is quite a common problem. You need to speak to Mr Shrodinger's cat to try and work out if either of you exist.

Yes, fine and dandy, but can you prove that to me?

Re:

or for that matter can you prove that I exist?

Rachel thinks I do because I've visited her, but you don't have that "reassurance" ;)
how can you convince youself I am real?
