    How do I know that you exist?  How do I know that you are not a AI chatbot TayTweets??

    Am I just your hallucination? How would you ever know? How do I know that Hub Trolls are just an algorithm that merely reflects all the nastiness and self-serving "Questions" aka the Architect - Neo conversation?  Are you the sum of a remainder of an unbalanced equation inherent to the programming? An anomaly of an otherwise harmony of mathematical precision?

    It sounds like a paranoid fantasy.
    Basically rude AIs get deleted.

    I'm having traumatic flashbacks to an epistemology class I took once.  It actually feels like my brain is bleeding.

    Could be. Our perception of the world is made by the processes in our brain. We make an image of the world that let us survive. This is not the real world. Everybody has a different perception of the world. But all in all we try to understand each other through language and common interests.
    We only see the wavelength of colour for example but bats for instance perceive a different world through the use of sonar.
    Plato's cave is a classic. (or in modern format The Matrix)

    Interesting food for thought. A suggestion for intrigue is to read British philosopher Nick Bostrom. Regard what the OP proposition comes to this mind regard laws regulating AI usage on the internet. We all know ads when we use the internet are determined by limited (?) AI what to post on the pages we interact with. In effect it does socially condition the user thus those in life interacted act with.

    For instance when asked for a recommendation in the grocery store the recommendation given is a product of remembered while is from the internet experience. A snowball effect. Thus, perhaps, the propensity of 'living' within a determined Matrix.

    Here's as far as I'll spin my wheels over this kind of question any time one shows up on the Internet (since I'm way past the stage in life when these kinds of questions tend to be the big thing, since I'm not one for "mind-expanding" substances, and since my offline and Earthly existence takes up pretty much all of my time)...

    On the Internet you don't know who really exists and who doesn't (which is why the person who wants to make it clear that he exists needs to be a few extra efforts if one hopes to reassure someone else that he's not dealing with a giant fake/illusion (or whatever).

    With regard to offline life, my reply to "the old exist" question is always my personal reference, the ever humble row of saltine crackers that are usually somewhere not too far away from me.  If I take out a new row (four rows in a box, of course) and start eating the crackers there will be permanently be fewer crackers when I finished snacking on them than before.  In fact, depending on how many were in the row, the crackers my even be completely gone at the end of "snack time".

    If you happen to be at the table with me, having coffee or tea (and maybe even crackers, although I don't usually serve guests saltines, but that's not the point, is it..) you'll witness the "disappearance" of the saltines right along with me.  You and/or I can see the reality of the saltines, and if we count them we'll come up with the same number (assuming, of course, that one or both of us is not using some kind of mind-affecting substances).

    Not all reality is subject to perception; although if you aren't in the room with me when I get out the row of saltines I can tell you all kinds of baloney about how/why they disappeared. In fact, I can really try to freak  you out and tell you that neither the saltines nor I really ever existed (and by the way, neither do the other two rows in the box).

    You don't really need to now that I exist, and I don't really need to know that you do.  We're killing time and/or doing whatever we do on the Internet.  It's probably wise (and I mean "wise") to have a realistic idea about whether the saltines were left by The Saltine Fairy or baked by The Keebler Elves (although sometimes all we need to know is that there used to 30 saltines and now there are none).

    Not to sound self-righteous, but one reality is that we live in a world where some people are starving

    I am answering the question:
    How do I know that you exist? How do I know that your are not a AI chatbot TAyTweets??

    Yesterday I read a logic problem that goes something like this:-

    (^%+ lies on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. On the other days he is telling the truth.
    *_ lies on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. On the other days he is telling the truth.
    On which day can they both safely say "Tomorrow I will lie".
