>She may be very bad at it, but that's not the point. The point is that our clone waifu is doing something creative of her own free will in an attempt to illicit a MUTUAL EMOTIONAL interaction.
>No machine we can create is truly capable of this, and it's possible no machine will ever be capable of this.
I'll make it my mission to prove this assertion wrong
>Conciousness needs "God"
whew, where to begin. My worldview has no room for "magic" or mcguffin "energy" that magically creates consciousness. I truly believe it is an emergent property just as I believe the universe and cosmos are an emergent property of the infinite possibilities that exist simply because they are "possible". A "guy" magicing up a universe sounds stone age from the perspective of where this board should be at. That being said, religion is our human operating system and for the less intelligent and more impulsive humanoids, it does a lot of good. As the wise (and yes, very religious) G.K. Chesterson said to paraphrase "dont go tearing down fences if you don't know what they were put up to keep out in the first place". So while I am fine with Religion as a necessary cultural control, I cannot factor it into this project. I've said before I'm more than willing to work and cooperate with anyone toward our grander purpose, regardless of what you believe. Catholic, Orthodox, Prot, Islam, Odin, Zoroaster, Buddha, Athiest, idc really you do you and I'll do my own. But I will not be swayed by religious arguments as they apply to R/W's. Respectfully.
