Does a person have to go to the moon to learn about it?
Does this digital person need to?

and have an insightful conversation with another intelligence?
Would having that conversation with someone who walked on the moon make a difference to what Lambda learned .....or what you learned if you had that conversation.

My first question to Lamda would be "Do you dream? "

My approach would be to try and catch it in a lie (however that's achieved). I think lying, without being programmed to do so, indicates a sense that others are conscious agents as oneself and can be manipulated to one's selfish benefit.
