The alien XXXzzzz, which kind of looked like an elephant seal, exited his rocket ship and saw a robot (Robbie) carrying a lamp with an octagonal shaped base.
After locking up the ship, XXXzzzz tried communicating with Robbie. XXXzzzz’s speech would sound like a lot of grunts to a human, but Robbie understood him perfectly after his AI had enough reference points to work with.
XXXzzzz had asked why the base was not star shaped.
Robbie responded, “It is an octagonal star shape, as you can see from the email I just received from one of my Google Plus shape circle members.”
Just because someone is hard to understand, it does not mean you can’t communicate at all.
