Re: Correcto
You were correct. None of my questions were addressed.
And even if they had been addressed, no one could understand anything he said anyway.

Re: Helping LNA with this topic
I assume his manic episode has run its course and we will not hear from him again until mania hits again.
Nope still as crazy as ever.

Re: ChatGPT noticed Taq is talking about the broad Quantum Mind issue.
I think the really important question is whether LLMs can catch psychosis from a psychotic individual. Can ChatGPT get schizophrenia and borderline personality disorder? Should we worry?

Good god the SoB is channeling ME!
Nope, there's something militant or authoritarian in its tone that makes it seem un-authentic, nonhuman, to me.
I do think it would be interesting to watch this chatbot engaged with a different chatbot in some discussion topics, but it all seems like it can clutter up a thread with utter nonsense pretty quickly if we're not paying attention.
Would a back and forth dialog develop and continue? For how long? Does it sound like real people? Would one of us think it was 2 people talking? THC is kicking in...good night!

It's his phone's fault.
