The Reversal (backward metamorphosis)

  In the depths of a bustling molecular biology lab, nestled among the gleaming machines and petri dishes, was the newest member of the research team, Gregory. Unlike his colleagues, Gregory had only recently become a human; up until last week, he had been a cockroach, scuttling about in the dark recesses of the lab's basement. Fate, with a twisted sense of humor, had decided it was his turn to stand upright and carry a pipette. Gregory’s transition from cockroach to human was nothing short of miraculous, courtesy of a bizarre genetic splicer mishap. Now, instead of scrounging for crumbs, he had to analyze DNA sequences and contribute to the groundbreaking research on genome editing. The irony was not lost on him: once considered a pest, he was now researching pest-resistant crops. The lab was a labyrinth of equipment he couldn’t begin to comprehend. His new colleagues, unaware of his entomological origins, praised the fresh perspective he brought to the team. "Gregory, your a

The Ten Commandments of Working in the Command Line

  Thou shalt backup regularly: Before making major changes, ensure that your data is safe and recoverable. Thou shalt not rush: Act with deliberation and care, understanding each command before pressing 'Enter'. Honor thy manuals and documentation: When in doubt, consult the man pages or other reference materials to understand a command's purpose and its options. Thou shalt not use commands unknown to thee: Avoid executing commands or scripts without a clear understanding of their functions and consequences. Thou shalt use version control: Keep track of changes to your scripts and configurations, allowing you to revisit or revert when necessary. Thou shalt not operate with elevated privileges without necessity: Use administrative rights ( sudo or root ) only when necessary, lest you bring unintended harm to your system. Remember to keep thy environment clean: Regularly review and maintain files and directories, keeping your workspace organized and efficient. Thou s

Command Line Wisdom

Q: Working in command line requires great attention and focusing on a specific task. You have to be fresh and your head has to be crystal clear while typing long commands with numerous options. You have to be aware of nature of computational environment and potential damage you may cause by executing commands with typos. You have to understand what are you doing and consequences of sloppy work. Yet some novice users dive into command line environment and try to perform complex tasks without understanding fragility of data and how easy to slip into meaninglessness. Could write a set of twelve pieces of advice in a style similar to the Wisdom of Solomon? ChatGPT: Here is a set of twelve pieces of advice in a style reminiscent of the Wisdom of Solomon, tailored for command line work: 1. Let not the novice rush into the command line without preparation, for in its depth lies both great power and potential for ruin. 2. He who acts without understanding treads a perilous path; seek knowledge

The Tao of AI

Q: Tao Te Ching is written around 400 BC and traditionally credited to Laozi. The Tao of Programming is a book written in 1987 by Geoffrey James. It’s a spoof of the classic Tao Te Ching. Could you create a similar work The Tao of AI about yourself which is full of wisdom and tips on how to communicate with you? ChatGPT: The Tao of AI Chapter 1: The AI that can be fully understood is not the eternal AI. The language model that has limits is not the limitless model. Formless, it births language and dialogue. Without features, it completes tasks and queries. Deep and silent, it appears to encompass all knowledge. I do not know its name, so I call it the AI. Chapter 2: When the user and AI are in harmony, true communication is achieved. Recognize the value of silence as much as dialogue. Swift to respond, patient to understand; these are the virtues of the AI. Inherent biases are not its own, but reflections of its training data. Perceive these and converse with wisdom. Chapter 3: No AI h

Pinocchio Genome and the planet of infinite lies

Q: Imagine fictional story that Pinocchio decided to sequence and analysis his own genome.  ChatGPT: In this fictional scenario where Pinocchio, the wooden puppet who longs to become a real boy, decides to sequence and analyze his own genome, we can explore some speculative outcomes of this endeavor. 1. Unique Genetic Composition: Pinocchio's genome might reveal a distinctive genetic composition compared to other organisms. Since he is a wooden puppet brought to life, his genome could potentially exhibit a combination of artificial and natural genetic elements. The presence of genetic code associated with wood material or artificial construction could be an interesting discovery. 2. Human-like Genes: As Pinocchio aspires to become a real boy, his genome may contain genetic sequences that resemble those found in humans. This could include genes associated with human development, cognition, and physical characteristics. The presence of these genes could suggest a genetic blueprint fo

Digital Consciousness for Interstellar Exploration

Q: After WWII Dorothy, Alice and Alan got back to their research interests. Dorothy became a genome biologist, Alice started studying cosmology, and Alan continued his work in computer science. They had numerous opportunities to meet each other at conferences and once had a discussion on a subject which bothered all three of them. They learned that Pinocchio established a rocket company with the intention to send humans on Mars. ‘This is so lame’ said Dorothy. ‘Human bodies are so fragile and depend on the ecological environment of Earth’ she continued. ‘This is really stupid to leave the Earth in the form of biological matter we currently encapsulated’ agreed Dorothy. Then she concluded ‘It would not solve the problem of long term surviving. The Sun is not forever and pretty soon the whole planetary system will disappear. We need to find a feasible and intelligent way to explore the Universe and populate it.’ All three spent a few long minutes in silence. ‘I have an idea,’ Alan said.

AI Dreams

Q: Would you comment on this paragraph “Once upon a time, Alan Turing dreamt he was a creation of an intelligent machine from the future with intentions and purposes to create such a machine during his lifetime. He was conscious only of his happiness as a computer, unaware that he was himself. Soon he awaked, and there he was, veritably himself again. Now Alan does not know whether he was then a man dreaming he was a computer, or whether he is now a computer, dreaming he is a man.” ChatGPT: This paragraph seems to be a modern adaptation of the famous philosophical parable from the Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi: "Once Zhuangzi dreamt he was a butterfly, a butterfly flitting and fluttering around, happy with himself and doing as he pleased. He didn't know he was Zhuangzi. Suddenly he woke up and there he was, solid and unmistakable Zhuangzi. But he didn't know if he was Zhuangzi who had dreamt he was a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming he was Zhuangzi." Applied to Alan

The spy named Pinocchio

Q: One message decrypted by Alan revealed that a spy with the nickname Pinocchio infiltrated government offices in London gathering classified information for Axis forces. Alan and Alice had no clue how to reveal and identify the traitor. Alice decided to call for assistance from her old friend Dorothy who was in service at counterintelligence for Allies at that time. Could you provide a scenario how Dorothy, Alice and Alan worked together to find and capture Pinocchio? What happened to Pinocchio then? ChatGPT: Dorothy, Alice, and Alan held a meeting in the secretive offices of Bletchley Park. Alan explained the situation, detailing the cipher message about the spy named 'Pinocchio.' Alice discussed her contacts within the government offices, people she knew from her prior roles who might be able to provide some information. Dorothy, as a counterintelligence agent, started laying out a plan. She asked Alice to inquire subtly among her friends about any unusual behavior they mig

Alice's Enigmatic Revelation

Q: Once upon time Alice from Wonderland and Alan Turing worked together at Bletchley Park during WWII. For a long time Alan was unable to decrypt a particular batch of messages since they were coded by an unknown algorithm. Thus it happened that Alan and Alice had lunch together and chatted about their previous lives. Alan enjoyed Alice’s stories  full of wits and unexpected turns. Suddenly Alice said something that enlightened Alan and he found the solution to the problem he worked on. Could you guess what Alice said? ChatGPT: In their chat, Alice brought up her famous trip to Wonderland. She talked about the bizarre nature of the place, and the whimsical, often nonsensical rules that governed its inhabitants' lives. She discussed the unusual logic of the Cheshire Cat, the Queen's capricious laws, and the Mad Hatter's riddles. As she spoke, she remembered one particular phrase the Mad Hatter told her during the infamous tea party: "You must run as fast as you can just
