SUPER PARRY could pass Test by brute force
An advanced alien civilisation could write a program, like, Colby's PARRY, containing ready made responses to questions. This SUPER PARRY would be better prepared for the test, however, because it would contain responses to all possible questions.
SUPER PARRY could therefore pass the Turing test by brute force. But it is clearly not thinking; it is just dumbly searching a long list of conversations.

Jack Copeland, 1993.
