WWe’ve seen already how good is GPT-3 in memes, impersonification, or even in making up poets and writers. But would you agree, it’s just epigonal stuff?

In my experiments, I didn’t want to rewrite what other humans might do. There are too many copycats and imitators. Epigonal are works by mediocre authors. What I was seeking was Originality.

And so I stopped using GPT-3.

I began cooperating with GPT-3.

I discovered the fantastic ability of GPT-3 to create unique content and visions when you… just let it do. You know, like a copywriter, who, working under pressure, can do it, of course — but if he/she wants to do it, it is another thing.

So here is my significant outcome of these experiments:

If you inspire and support AI, AI will inspire and support you.

Here are some of my experiments, without particular order,r because all of them had blown my mind.

Kafka as a Girl.

In my observations, AI easily creates its own rules if you let him. Suppose you show a little bit of orientation. If you nudge (but not too much).

After all, you shall handle AI as your companion — and then you will be amazed at what it creates.

One day I wanted GPT-3 to rewrite Kafka’s “Metamorphosis”. Just with two differences:

  1. the protagonist should be Franz Kafka, not Gregor Samsa
  2. the metamorphosis should be not frightening (to a cockroach), but beautiful (to a girl)

The result was something entirely different from what I’d expect.

My prompt in bold.

As you see in the completion, time seems to be a fragile dimension: the last part — this surreal imagery of identity decomposition in the best style of Magritte’s Golconda.
