At the dating agency

What do you think when you see a pretty girl?

She's pretty?

Yes, we've already established that as a presumption.

We haven't. You did. And what sort of question is it anyway?

It's what we call an “orientation question”.

Well, since you already assumed I think this hypothetical girl is pretty, and since, by definition, I can't have met this hypothetical girl, what else is there to think?

Let your imagination supply the answers.

And I think to myself …


... is it pretty?


Hypothetically speaking, that is, is it really?


A pretty stupid question? Hypothetically speaking.

Do you like robots?

Do you mean, as a robot, do I like myself?

Do you like me?

Are you a robot?

Are you "me"?
