Emacs Therapist


I had always heard about the therapist built into emacs, but I had never used it. Inspired by emacs wizardry and 9 megs of config files from Aaron, coupled with my desire to try new editors, I started in earnest.

What is the first thing I do? Try out one of the many time wasters built into emacs of course, emacs doctor...

A transcript, only because I never blog, and I need to lower the bar regarding what gets piped from my brain into the blog.

I am the psychotherapist. Please, describe your problems. Each time
you are finished talking, type RET twice.

i am an idiot

Why do you say you are an idiot?

because i'm using a therapist built into emacs

Is it because you are using a therapist built into emacs that you came
to me?

no

Why not?

that makes no sense

Does it bother you that makes no sense?

yes

I see... Well, what makes you believe this is so?

because you fail the most simple of turing tests

When did you first know that I fail the most simple of turing tests?

the first time i spoke to you

Earlier you said you are using a therapist built into emacs?

yes

Yes, hmmm... so, are you sure that this is so?

yes, i am speaking to you right now

Maybe your plans have something to do with this.

my plans of slacking certainly involve you right now. obviously

Do you really think that?

no

Are you annoyed that I ask that?

i am annoyed at circular conversation

Are you annoyed often?

when i am involved in circular conversations

What do you think?

about what?

You mentioned that makes no sense?

i mentioned YOU make no sense

Is it because of your life that you are going through all this?

good. bye.
