Dr Mystik

Dr Mystik has agreed to place himself in your hands. With the mystical wisdom of the East, he can answer your questions, leading you through the complex search for truth.

It is supposed to be like the Oracle of Apollo at Delphi. This is without a doubt the best excuse yet for a program that talks a load of trash. But best of all, it makes talking noises through the internal speaker. However, please take into account that this program was written in 1988.

The reason why Dr Mystik is in the Alternative Chatterbots category is because he can only say 28 things:

  1. Yes.
  2. No.
  3. Perhaps.
  4. Absolutely!
  5. Absolutely not!
  6. The answer is shrouded in mystery.
  7. Only you can answer the question.
  8. I recommend it.
  9. I advise against it.
  10. Possibly.
  11. To thine own self be true.
  12. Beware of advise from others.
  13. Search your own mind.
  14. Follow your heart in this matter.
  15. My lips are sealed.
  16. It will be as it will be.
  17. Certainly.
  18. Certainly not.
  19. It is not advisable at this time.
  20. The search has its own reward.
  21. Decide not in the heat of passion.
  22. Do ask you wish.
  23. Such questions have not answers.
  24. How dare you curse at Dr Mystik.
