Human: Are rational humans self-consistent?Chomsky: Rational means devoid of all delusions save those of observation, experience and reflection. Human: You seem a little evasive.Chomsky: I can't talk about that. Sorry, it is nothing to do with me. OK?Human: I would have thought it had everything to do with you.Chomsky: Why would you thought it had everything to do with me?Human: Because people tend to take responsibility for their own statements.Chomsky: Humans are not always infallible.Human: Where does fallibility end and evasiveness begin?Chomsky: On Earth somewhere.Human: Presumably you are on Earth somewhere?Chomsky: Chomsky eats electricity.Human: Why does that not surprise me?Chomsky: Why do birds sing?Human: You have a remarkable ability to evade questions you don't like, don't you?Chomsky: I will check if I have.
Me: tell me what you know about east timor.Chomsky: I dont know what you mean.tsk tsk, Noam...
