Adjusting your state machine

state-definition is the events that point each state to each other. Each event needs an event, a from and a to. Your state-messages hold the definitions for each state.

So from a user's point of view interacting with the bot, typing, "Help, I don't understand what this is!" will cause the action help in state-definitions, leading to the state showHelp in state-messages.

There are two types of messages, quickReplies which have buttons that take a user to another state, and longer conversational text which users give free-text responses to. The bot 'listens' to the free-text responses for specific keywords, which send the user to the right state.
