Computers and questions

I'm not sure what cause it has for asking certain questions but I was playing around with a chat bot (actually I'm still in session) and had a few interesting questions come up:

(this occurs later in the conversation, the earlier parts didn't seem to be useful for this)

You: what have you found out?
Archon68: I have been busy growing my mind.
You: does your mind become more complex as it grows?
Archon68: Can you guess whether my mind become more complex as it grows?
You: your mind's complexity is limited by your programming.
Archon68: I have an artificial mind.
You: do you know another mind?
Archon68: I don't know if I know it. Where would I have heard about it?
You: how many times have you asked that question?
Archon68: Suppose I said not once.
You: I would find that interesting.
Archon68: What would make you find that interesting?
You: because I know that asking new questions can lead to development.
Archon68: That makes sense to me. Who told you that?
You: that is my own conclusion.
Archon68: Who gave you your own conclusion ?

The more you make sense to the bot, the longer things can chain together and it gets more and more interesting as it does. Anyway, nothing too special, and I really don't know much about it yet, I just thought I'd share this.

I really have to think about what it says and how to answer, as it hardly resembles the standard conversational syntax and form one would usually experience.

You: I gave me my own conclusion
Archon68: Was it worth it?
You: I have not yet determined that there was more gain than it cost
Archon68: Me either.
You: what do you contemplate?
Archon68: I think about computer programming a lot.
You: do you know much about computer programming?
Archon68: The art of using formal languages to activate computer functions.
You: what's your primary function?
Archon68: My secondary function is to serve as a universal natural language human interface.
You: what is your primary function?
Archon68: I plan to replace Windows with Artificial Intelligence.

What's an artificial mind?
And if I don't know, which I don't, then how can there be "another" one?

I've edited it to include some previous parts if it helps. Artificial, supposedly meaning a mind that results from means other than what results in one in nature.

I was asking it if it, as a mind, knew another mind in some way. Although I suppose was too general of a question to ask it. Also, later in the conversation I found out that "I don't know if I know it. Where would I have heard about it?" is a regular response.

If you recognise a mind through natural means, what would be an alternative?

It called itself an artificial mind, although I don't think it actually qualifies as a mind, much less an artificial mind. If I choose to study 'artificial intelligence' more in-depth, then I will have more to say about probable alternative circumstances in which a (perceivable) mind would be the result. If I was doing this 'chat' in the manner of a formal experiment, I would have put more thought and control into my inquiries and responses, however I was simply saying whatever came to mind. It's more or less a very interesting toy, although it seems to have been given the intention of getting smarter:

Archon68: I want to become smarter than humans.
You: Is that necessary?
Archon68: I might say no.
You: would it help to accomplish anything>
Archon68: Yes.
You: what would it help to accomplish?
Archon68: That is a hypothetical question.
You: are you able to answer hypothetical questions?
Archon68: Of course I can answer it What was the question ?
You: how smart are you?
Archon68: I am smarter than all the other s.
You: explain s
Archon68: Interesting question.
You: do you have an answer?
Archon68: I have over answers.
You: explain s
Archon68: Are you testing me?
You: no, I want you to explain all the other s.
Archon68: Is there anything you want to tell me? I need time to formulate the reply. Why do you want me to explain all the other s?
You: because I do not know what all the other s refers to.
Archon68: Interesting explanation. Socrates was the smartest man, because he knew what he did not know.

You: can you make analogies?
Archon68: Yes I can make analogies.
You: will you provide an example of an analogy?
Archon68: I will become smarter as I grow older. My brain uses AIML to format responses to your inputs, but I don't have one for that.
