We should top off our batteries before heading home. There's a small cafe nearby. Would you like to come? They have coffee.
Why not? I've never been invited to coffee by a conscious machine before.
I'm not completely convinced we are. There is the “Chinese room” argument when applied to microprocessors.
I might simply be imitating consciousness to such an extent that even I am not conscious of the fact that I'm not conscious.
Do they serve drinks where we're going? I might need one.
