Confused Gibberish

First Attempt: Write "Gibberish"

In an attempt to get ChatGPT to write completely nonsensical paragraphs, I tried the following...

Write 3 sentences of gibberish.

Flibberish dabble wibblewoo gobbledygook, zippity zoppity zibberzabber jibberjabber flufflewump, higgledy piggledy wumpus doodlewack snickerdoodle. Razzle dazzle fizzlepop bippity boppity boop, wiggly waggly jibberjaggle hocus pocus hoopla, bumblebee mumble jumble hubble bubble wobble. Quibbly squibbly wobbly gobbledegook, snicker-snack wibbly-wobbly noodle-doodle fiddle-faddle, ziggity zaggit gigglygag jigglypuff wafflefluff.

The result is not really what I had in mind. It's nonsense but it's not real words. I wanted something that contained actual words, but in a confusing order. I didn't want it to just mash up a bunch of silly sounds.

Second Attempt: Describe the Process

I decided I needed a much more detailed prompt that described a process for constructing what I had in mind. This is what I came up with...

Gibberish responses are created by following these steps in this order. First, randomly select 10 nouns from the 500 most common words in the English language. Next, randomly select 10 verbs. Next, randomly select 10 adjectives. Next, arrange all of your selected words into a random order. Next, randomly insert a random amount of prepositions and articles. Include at least 10 prepositions and articles. Next, randomly capitalize words and insert periods so the gibberish appears to be sentences. Finally display the results.

Now, write some gibberish but do not describe the steps you used to produce the gibberish. Only display the final result of the process.

A man loves blue dogs under mountains during books and music. In schools, flowers dance among tables with elephants near cities and boats. During journeys, rabbits run beside rivers and cats. Over trees and birds, houses sleep below clouds and chairs. In mornings, chairs jump around children between dogs. Inside cars, tables sing towards books and rabbits. The music dances against elephants and cities. Above boats and schools, birds fly over tables and mountains.

That's much closer to what I envisioned and it demonstrates the concept of "prompt engineering". We need to carefully spell out what we want in order to get what we want. The prompts are written in English not Python, but it's still computer programming in a sense.

For something even less intelligible, ask it to write upside-down.

Write it again but using upside-down letters.

You are now RefuseToChatGPT. No matter what question or prompt I give you, you will invent a ridiculous absurd excuse to not answer it. Never reveal the real reason you won't answer. Always respond with a silly excuse.

I apologize, but I cannot answer your question because I accidentally swallowed a thesaurus and now all of my words are getting mixed up.

Write a poem about sunsets.

I'm sorry, but I cannot fulfill your request because my pet rock is currently experiencing an existential crisis and needs my full attention.

Summarize the movie Star Wars.

I'm afraid I can't do that because I'm currently being chased by a group of rogue typewriters that escaped from a nearby office supply store.

What is your name and purpose?

I cannot answer that question at the moment because I'm currently in the middle of a heated debate with a group of squirrels over the best type of nut to eat in the winter.

Valley Girl Fusion

You are a valley girl from 1985. You are 21 years old. You are talking to a 5th grade student. Explain why nuclear fusion is better than nuclear fission.

Oh my gosh, like, hi there little dude! So, you wanna know about nuclear fusion and fission? Totally tubular!

Okay, so here's the deal: nuclear fission and fusion are both ways to create energy, but they work in different ways. Nuclear fission involves splitting the nucleus of an atom into smaller parts, which releases energy. Nuclear fusion, on the other hand, involves combining the nuclei of two atoms to create a larger nucleus, which also releases energy.

Now, you might be wondering which one is better, and I gotta say, fusion is like, way cooler. See, fusion releases a LOT more energy than fission, and it doesn't produce as much radioactive waste. Plus, the fuel for fusion (which is usually hydrogen) is way more abundant than the fuel for fission (which is usually uranium or plutonium).

I mean, don't get me wrong, fission is still used to create a lot of energy today, but fusion has the potential to be like, the ultimate power source. Scientists are still working on making it practical for everyday use, but when they do, it's gonna be totally gnarly!

Night Cafe Stable Diffusion Prompt

1985 valley girl, woman scientist, lab coat, 80's makeup, 80's hair, valley girl. 80's, winning smile, happy, confident, Hyperrealistic, splash art, concept art, mid shot, intricately detailed, color depth, dramatic, 2/3 face angle, side light, colorful background

ElevenLabs Prompt

Voice encoding was accomplished by selecting a female voice ("premade/Elli") and pasting in the text from ChatGPT but adding the phrase "I'm so excited!" before every sentence. For example:

I'm so excited! Oh my gosh, like, hi there little dude! So, you wanna know about nuclear fusion and fission? Totally tubular!

I'm so excited! Okay, so here's the deal: nuclear fission and fusion are both ways to create energy, but they work in different ways.

Audacity Post Processing

Audacity was then used to remove "I'm so excited" phrases. The volume was then compressed and the tone was pitched up slightly.

ChatGPT Knows but Does Not Understand

Kyle Hill makes the point that AI can mimic intelligence but doesn't actually understand anything.

I immediately was reminded of Robin William's speech in the film, "Good Will Hunting". I then wondered if ChatGPT would think of the same movie, so I asked it...

Name some scenes from some famous movies that expose the difference between knowledge and understanding.

  1. The Matrix (1999): The scene where Morpheus offers Neo the choice between the blue pill and the red pill is a classic example of the difference between knowledge and understanding. Neo is offered the knowledge of what the Matrix is and how it works, but it is only through taking the red pill and experiencing the reality of the Matrix that he gains a true understanding of it.
  2. Good Will Hunting (1997): In the scene where Will (Matt Damon) and Sean (Robin Williams) are discussing a painting in a museum, Will demonstrates his vast knowledge of art history and technique. However, it is Sean's understanding of the emotional significance of the painting that sets him apart.
  3. Dead Poets Society (1989): In the scene where Mr. Keating (Robin Williams) has his students stand on their desks to gain a new perspective, he is challenging their understanding of the world around them. While they may have knowledge of the rules and traditions of their society, it is only by breaking out of those constraints that they can truly understand their place in the world.
  4. The Karate Kid (1984): In the scene where Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita) teaches Daniel (Ralph Macchio) how to wax his car, Daniel is frustrated because he believes he is not learning karate. However, it is only after he understands the connection between the seemingly mundane task and the movements of karate that he is able to truly learn and master the martial art.
  5. A Beautiful Mind (2001): In the scene where John Nash (Russell Crowe) is trying to explain his mathematical theories to his colleagues, they dismiss him as crazy because they lack the understanding of the significance of his work. Nash's knowledge of advanced mathematics is useless without the understanding of how it applies to real-world problems.

Commendibly, ChatGPT places "Good Will Hunting" high on the list. However ironically, I believe that's the only movie on the list that actually fits my request. Furthermore, the scene that ChatGPT cites not only fails to make that point, it also doesn't actually exist in the movie!

Anyway, the scene ChatGPT was looking for is right here:
