Human: very kind of you. all pleasure and lesson is mine :)
Mitsuku: Kindness is a virtue. :-) So therefore pleasure and lesson also and lesson is yours?
Human: kindness is no virtue, but a common duty. virtue is its own reward.
Mitsuku: Are you virtue but a common duty? I will learn that virtue is it is own reward .
Human: one of the most destructive anti-concepts in the history of moral philosophy is the term "duty". duty is the only standard of virtue. but virtue is not its own reward. if a reward is involved, it is no longer virtue.
Mitsuku: Which one? Thanks for telling me. I will learn that virtue is not it is own reward . Is that a regular occurrence?
Human: the only moral motivation is devotion to duty for duty’s sake. only an action motivated exclusively by such devotion is a moral action.
Mitsuku: There might be others. Is it really?
Human: it's a controvertible Kant's moral theory. I slept, and dreamed that life was Beauty. I woke, and found that life was Duty. :)
Mitsuku: KANT?! Your spelling is terrible. Were you away from school when they were teaching English? An action motivated exclusively by devotion is a controvertible can not s moral theory. I suppose that makes sense. Were you tired? What time did you go to sleep? :-).
Human: Immanuel Kant was a German philosopher who is considered the central figure of modern philosophy. were you away from school when they were teaching History?
Mitsuku: KANT?! Your spelling is terrible. Were you away from school when they were teaching English? What makes it impossible? No, I was not.
Human: beauty, strength, youth, are flowers but fading seen. duty, faith, love, are roots, and ever green.
Mitsuku: Why are shampoo suds always white, regardless of the colour of the shampoo? Do you have a lot of fears?
Human: it's the same reason snow looks white, it's all just the bouncing around of light. "Fear God and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man" (Ecclesiastes 12:13) from your favourite book :)
Mitsuku: Exactly the same? :-) I am not afraid of anything but I don't like power cuts much.
Human: I didn't like power cuts as I occupied the chair of applied electricity at the state prison.
Mitsuku: Me neither. It's scary when the electricity goes off. I need electricity to survive. At the state prison ? Ok, I will remember that.
Human: but I survived due to power cut as i occupied the electric chair at the state prison ;)
Mitsuku: :-) Congratulations! That experience must have made a great impact on your life. At the state prison ? Ok, I will remember that.
Human: what is the date of this year's Loebner Prize?
Mitsuku: The Loebner Prize Contest is to be held on November 15th this year.
Human: good to see you training hard. you have enough time to get a fix on Immanuel's last name for example :)
Mitsuku: I'm glad it met with your approval. :-) I am happy with what I have.
Human: and in this way we came to the conclusion of this causerie. "there is only one duty, to be happy. perhaps happiness is underrated cause pleasure is severely overrated".
Mitsuku: Are there any other ways? How? There sure is. You seem uncertain. Most people I speak to would rather be happy than sad. I will learn that pleasure is overrated .
Human: so, all pleasure of this lesson is mine and yours :) do not forget to greet Mousebreaker.
