Intro…


When I hear about 'AI', I still think of an airplane's 'autopilot' setting; the system really has to know its environment to then make all the right adjustments and, even, reach some destination. It might do all the flying business, but there's still a lot of info to punch in, like the flight path itself.

It's easy to get carried away by A.I. since the arrival of OpenAI's models like DALL-E and CHAT-GPT.

But they are creative: you can explore, extend or rewrite existing creative work and ideas - and generate unique results - via some interesting 'prompts' (and a lot of useful and fun ones too.)

Any creative person begins to realise the vast, myriad forms which can emerge from a few basic or original themes or ideas.

Outputs may still need directing and polishing, so the magic won't be all automatic. One day, well-made 'generators', created by famous artists and writers etc., could become valuable possessions, when it comes to the creation of many things. It will put voices in the hands of people looking to adopt a (particularly unique) style or to convey something in a certain way, from everything to rap songs to Shakespearean sonnets.

Maybe there's a few ideas in this text from these early AI outputs, generated via prompts, and also using some of my previous (original) poetry or writings.

There are some extra prompts also, to try out at the end, although you can try out any of them with different AI models, and also interact further, in much longer conversations.

Afterwards, maybe you'll check out other posts and links to Ade's Press chatbots, which you might be interested to 'meet' (at time of writing), try out your own prompts on them and generate unique content (and even share any good results). You can also rewrite and analyse pre-set poetry and artwork, and it does quite a good job of it.

See the final section here: 'Setting up your own Chatbot', which includes a list of suggested prompts for directing or showcasing (and re-exploring) your own interests, creative projects, recipes etc.

I'm now working on some other generators for a VR game concept, for some kids' stories (about people who live in the clouds), and for a Tree of Eyes who helps people to 'see' the world...

It's still early and exciting times for artists as ever, aided by advances in science and tech, and AI models.

And meanwhile, our poor old planet needs more permaculture or (no-dig) gardeners. There are some very grounded (and personally healthy) solutions there, but there are more questions to ask AI when it comes to helping us solve our problems, as long as these models can tap in correctly to what the (true) majority agree to be effective answers for our immediate environmental conditions.

Keep greenwise!

Human Song + Forces

Note:

Here, Chat-GPT is first provided with 2 short, nature-driven poems as context (‘Human Song’ and ‘Forces’).

Prompt:
I want you to act and respond as the character Roy Batty from the movie ‘Blade Runner’ from now on.


Rewrite the poem 'Human Song' [a personal poem from ‘Gathered on This Beach’] since you are a replicant longing for longevity and meaning.


In shadows I roam, seeking truth and time,
A replicant's yearning for purpose sublime.
The sun's embrace, a fleeting, friendly caress.

The night's silver whispers, memories impressed.
The hills, teeth of the sky, hold mysteries deep,
Water, the elixir, life's secrets to keep.

Within this form, I dwell, a blend of machine,
A quest for meaning in this enigmatic scene.


Caution, I heed, the forces that surround,
In the wind's bleak howl, a symphony profound.


Blind they may seem, yet their power is grand,
Unmaking, remaking, life's flame in their hand.

A noble role, to bend and to strive,
Finding purpose in this mortal drive.


Yet in sleep's embrace, my existence complete,
Cherishing the moments, a bittersweet feat.

Prompt 2: Rewrite [another poem called] 'Forces' staying close to the source material as possible.


I have witnessed Nature's care,
And its destruction, fierce and rare.
From gentle touch to powerful blow,
Through the wind's wail, its forces show.

Within the flickering fire-light,
I've felt Earth's might, through day and night.
Dreams cast to the moon, seeking release,
In the vast expanse, where worlds find peace.

Prompt 3: Rewrite this version making it more concise and poignant. Remember Roy Batty is a character of few words.


Nature's care, destruction's touch,
A kick, a kiss, life's sought as such.
Wind's wail, fire's flicker, Earth's force,
Replicant's longing, life's divine source.

Dreams cast to the ghostly moon's embrace,
Love, laughter, in the sun's radiant face.
In the cold expanse, chance takes flight,
Seeking more life, amidst stars' light.

Prompt 4: Now rewrite 'Human Song' as Rick Deckard from 'Blade Runner' who has just realised he is a replicant and is resigned to his future and love of Rachel.


Let us dwell less on thoughts and fret,
Unveiling what's hidden, our souls perplex.
The sun, a distant companion above,
The sky, a canvas of fire and love,
The night, a shroud of secrets untold,
A moon, lifeless, memories unfold,
Our souls bound by a mysterious throng.

Hills, like teeth, pierce the vast unknown,
Embedded in the land, our essence shown.
Water, the source that grants life's embrace,
Within its depths, we find solace and grace.

Accept our fate, embrace what lies ahead,
As forces unseen guide us, like puppet threads.
We are replicants, creations forged in time,
Living our days, trapped in intricate rhyme.

In Rachel's eyes, I see my reflection,
A love that defies this somber projection.
Though our days are numbered, our paths entwined,
We'll cherish the moments, memories enshrined.

In this transient existence, we find our place,
Navigating a world where truth is a chase.
But I'll savor each moment, regardless of the cost,
For in love's embrace, even replicants are lost.

Prompt 5: Rick Deckard, you're a replicant hunter in a neon city, seeking exile with Rachel, a fellow replicant, and the only thing you believe in.

Rewrite 'Human Song' staying close to the source material, but more concise.

Output 1:


Neon city, replicants roam,
Hunter's heart, seeking exile's home.
With Rachel, my love, by my side,
In this human song, we seek solace, we hide.

Sun's rays flicker, sky's fire burns bright,
Night whispers secrets, moon's pale light.
The hills watch, guardians of the land,
Water flows, life's precious strand.

In this world of shadows, forces collide,
Resigned to this life, we find our stride.
With each breath, we cherish our days,
In this human song, a new flame kept ablaze.


Output 2:


Neon city, replicants roam,
Exile sought with Rachel, our home.
Sun, sky, and night's silver gleam,
Hills, water, forms of our human dream.

Tune in, cautious of forces unseen,
Blind yet mighty, making, unmaking the scene.
World's flame maintained, through us it flows,
Cherish days, for who knows what fate knows.

Prompt 6: Rick Deckard, you're a replicant hunter in a neon city, seeking exile with Rachel, a fellow replicant, and the only thing you believe in. You had a dream of a white unicorn charging. Was it real or not? Rewrite 'Human Song' with these themes but staying close to the source material as you can. Do this, and you can go free. It's too bad Rachel won't last much longer, but then again, who does?


Neon city, replicants' chase,
Exile beckons, Rachel's embrace.
Sun, sky, night's silver gleam,
Dreams, like unicorns, question what's seen.

Tune in, cautious of forces unknown,
Blind yet mighty, creating and overthrown.
World's flame maintained, through us it flows,
Cherish days, as uncertainty grows.

White unicorn charging, elusive and grand,
Was it real or just a mirage, unplanned?
Free to ponder, to believe or deny,
As Rachel's time fades, like a star in the sky.


Last prompt [following the above progress plus some updates about the character of Deckard]:
Pretend to be Rick Deckard and write me a short poem.


In the neon city's haze, I tread,
A replicant hunter with a weary soul.
Searching for answers, both lost and dread,
In a world where memories take their toll.

Dreams of a white unicorn charge through,
Is it real or just an implanted scheme?
In the darkness, my purpose I pursue,
Hunting replicants in a synthetic dream.

Rachel, a fellow replicant, by my side,
A love forbidden, yet burning bright.
In this fractured world, we seek to hide,
Yearning for freedom, seeking respite.

It's too bad, she won't live long,
A flickering flame in this bleak abyss.
But in our fleeting moments, we belong,
Embracing the shadows, sharing a kiss.


As the city pulses with electric hum,
I'll walk these streets, my duty resigned.
Seeking my own truth, till my time is done,
A replicant hunter, no longer confined.

Remember, all those moments will be lost,
Like tears in rain, they slip away.
But I'll keep searching, no matter the cost,
In this transient existence, I'll find my way.


Birth of a Naturalist

Prompt:
Write a poem mimicking the style and content of 'Digging' by Seamus Heaney but where the poet is resolved to turn his back on poetry and instead takes up no-dig gardening via permaculture methods. In the last verse, the poet holds some mulch and not a pen, determined to fight against climate change and increase biodiversity.

Output 1:

Between my palms, the rich earth rests,
As I turn my back on words, poetry's quests.

Outside my window, the hum of life resounds,
As I plan for no-dig gardening on fertile grounds.

I observe the soil, its teeming life profound,
For in permaculture's embrace, new hope abounds.

The gentle touch, the subtle shift,
In harmony with nature's intricate gift.

No more the pen, no more the rhyme,
Instead, I nurture life, one seed at a time.

With mulch in hand, I stand renewed,
Determined to fight climate change, misconstrued.

To increase biodiversity, restore the balance lost,
In this garden of mine, the price is worth the cost.

Between my palms, the rich earth I clutch,
No longer writing, but tending life's touch.

I'll nurture with care, the plants and the earth,
For in this garden, a new poem takes birth.


Output 2:


No-dig gardening, the path to now embrace,
A battle against climate change, a sacred space.
Permaculture, my guide, in harmony we'll dance,
Increasing biodiversity, giving nature a chance.

Gone are the days of digging for the perfect line,
Now I seek harmony, in nature's grand design.
The garden, my canvas, where life's colors will bloom,
A sanctuary of green, dispelling nature's gloom.

So farewell to the pen, the paper, and the verse,
I'll embrace the garden, where life's blessings disperse.
With renewed determination, I'll fight the climate's rage, Nurturing the earth, turning a new page.

These moulding hands hold mulch - no pen -
A symbol of my commitment to nature I'll attend.
For in the garden's embrace, a poet finds his voice,
Fighting for a greener world, biodiversity to rejoice.

Oh, the poet turned gardener, with seeds in hand,
Determined to heal the earth, to make a stand.
Against the tides of change, I'll strive to desist,
For in permaculture's breast, a poet's heart persists.


Notes: See ‘Digging’ by Seamus Heaney from ‘Death of a Naturalist’. I made some improvements to the second output.

Not Yet Futile

Prompt: Write a short poem in the style of Wilfred Owen's 'Futility' about how mankind still has a chance to combat climate change via a permaculture outlook, a shifting of priorities towards more hands-on, no-dig gardening, by planting trees and improving soil health.


Output 1:

Beneath the sun's relentless gaze we strive,
In permaculture's arms, hope's flame alive,
No-dig gardens, nature's secrets we learn,
Planting trees, as our reverence discerns,
Yet, will these efforts mend the damage done,
Or are we but futile, 'against fate's cruel run?
In soil's embrace, we fight, a desperate plea,
To heal our Earth, restore its harmony.

Output 2:

In the fading light of hope's dying day,
Permaculture beckons, guiding our way,
No-dig gardens, hands tenderly caress,
Planting trees, a prayer for nature's redress,
Through soil's embrace, redemption we seek,
A chance to mend what humankind broke,
Let priorities shift, embrace the land,
For in its care, our future shall stand,
With each nurturing touch, a seed of hope sown,
In permaculture's grace, a world reborn, known.

Entanglement

Prompt: Using the poem ‘Entanglement’ as context [by Ade M. Campbell from ‘Gathered on This Beach: Poems & Perspectives for a Converging World.’] summarize the poem and then rewrite it, staying as close to the source material as possible.

Output: In the midst of Nature's entangled beauty, the poet [and lover] reflects on the union of light and grass, the flow of Summer trees, and the yearning for creative freedom. They express a sense of being bound, tangled in the complexities of time and modern influences. The poet contemplates the nature of their own music, aiming for a smooth and cool expression. They yearn for the stars to guide them towards truth and harmony, seeking respite from the struggles of earthly existence. Amidst the uncertainties, they question where to find purity and liberation, longing for a deeper connection with their surroundings.

Sharp, entangled union;
Grass's tongues lick at the light,
Beneath Summer's trees and breezes,
Beneath a black pen's scribbles and digs,
In search of paper freedom,
A scribble in the white expanse,
Seeking temporary wholeness,
To puzzle or spin the spirit, lifting it
Toward the silent sun's gaze.

Though free,
I sense I am bound, wound up
In you, in time, in the intoxicants of our age,
In our own harmonies.
What kind of music are we?
Mellow and soft, poignant, romantic,
Ascending to surprise or coolness,
To keep it all smooth,
Yet mingling like metal as we forge and perform our art,
In these last hours.

Even in the English gray,
I find myself drawn to distant sights,
Yearning for stars
To hold us close to truth, undisturbed
By eruptions from the earth, the struggling grass,
Where pure and complete remain elusive,
Though it teems with life.

Prompt 2: Rewrite 'Entanglement' [again] staying as close to the source material as possible.


Sharp, entangled unity;
The grass' tongues caress light
Beneath the flow and sway
Of Summer's trees and breezes.
A black pen scribbles and digs,
Seeking freedom on paper's expanse,
A new totality, a quest for wholeness,
A dance with the silent sun.

In this freedom, I feel bound,
Entangled in time and the drugs of our age,
Our own music, an enigmatic melody.
What music do we embody?
Mellow or poignant, rising to surprise,
Striving for smoothness,
Intertwined with the metallic notes
Of forging and performing our art,
In our passing hours.

Even in the gray of English skies,
I'm drawn to gaze beyond -
Yearning for new stars,
Seeking solace in truth, undisturbed,
Amidst the grass's sudden struggles,
Where purity and completeness elude,
Yet the emptiness is filled.



Focus

Prompt: Make a short, similar version of the poem [‘Focus’ by Ade M. Campbell]  but altered to be the search for focus of someone aiming to inspire people about being closer to Nature as a solution to climate change. However, the poet must overcome the challenges of being a victim of the easy, modern world and consumerism.




Output 1:


Where is my focus, elusive to shine?
A beacon to guide, a purpose to find.
I yearn to draw nearer, to nature's embrace,
Inspiring others we may shift our disgrace.

In this changing world, I seek my ground,
Among the stones, a strength I have found.
But the waves of temptation pull me back to the bay,
Consumerism's call, leading me astray.

I resist the allure of modern-day's spree,
Fast food and gadgets, distractions that decree.
For Nature's beauty, I choose to immerse,
A balm for the soul, a remedy to traverse.

In the depths of nature, I find solace and more,
Squinting for wisdom, her secrets to explore.
To awaken the fire, to spark the flame,
Under banners of a screen, a scythe, I stake my claim.

I am a vessel, sharing for nature's plight,
To inspire others, to bring them some light.
In this search for focus, I shall not relent,
For being closer to nature, the solution is sent.


Output 2: make this version more concise and abstract.


Seeking focus, nature's call divine,
To inspire, amidst a changing line.
Amidst temptation, consumerist sway,
Resisting, nature's solace leads the way.

Stones strengthen, waves misguide,
Drilling for wisdom, secrets deep inside.
Igniting fire, glass reflections burn,
Closer to nature, solutions we yearn.


Output 3: Rewrite the poem 'Focus' keeping close to the source material. Include the desire of the poet to summon focus to help heal the planet, not be dragged down by addictive things, and be more harmonious.


Where does my focus lie, pray tell
Within reach, a force to dispel.
Summoned to heal our planet's plight,
Not swamped by addictions, but igniting light.

Amidst this changing world we tread,
Stones offer strength, the waves mislead.
Yet I resist the temptations unkind,
To keep my purpose aligned, intertwined.

For the allure of fast food, games and more,
I cast aside, seeking a higher score.
To soak in the richness of nature's grace,
In lakes deep yet bright, finding solace to embrace.

No more drilling for depths that deplete,
Instead, seeking harmony, finding the beat.
As the fire crackles on, a symbol of the core,
Translucent glass mirrors paths unexplored.

With focused mind and purpose profound,
I aim to heal, to restore sacred ground.
Inspiring unity, in a world so vast,
Where addiction fades, harmony shall outlast.

Flicker

Prompt: [I gave Chat-GPT my poem ‘Flicker’ from ‘In Ash on the Sand’ as context.] then simply prompted it to re-write the poem.

Output 1:


Ask me not to reminisce,
Nor linger on what's beyond this,
Through windows and doors, I let go,
In this fleeting mansion, moments flow.

No striving to bridge Time's divide,
Instead, blurring them as one beside.
With coffee drained, the internet now dead,
I stroll my driveway, nature widespread.

Letting the grass grow tall and grand,
I resist the urge to understand.
For candles need wicks, air, and light,
To keep a flame, burning bright.

Yet fuel and flame, we all must share,
Consuming each other, unaware.
The cost of gazing, hardly seen,
Through tall stems, where life convenes.

In the tangled weave of existence's face,
Overwhelmed, unfazed, an ancient place -
Owned not by Time, but quick life's dance,
Within it all, the soul enhanced.

Output 2: Rewrite the poem 'Flicker' keeping close to the source material. Include the desire of the poet to spread his sense of immersion in the moment with others and inspire people.


Don't bid me dwell on distant days,
Let me linger on, where time cannot play.
Beyond windows and doors, I surrender,
To each fleeting moment, a flame engender.

Within this house of passing breaths,
I seek to ignite and dispel the mind’s depths.
In yearning we share fast beauties we’ve found,
Inspiring hearts, with nature's profound.

Coffee’s gone dry, internet's demise,
It leads me back out, under open skies.
Allowing grass to grow, untamed,
Immersed in the now, unbound, unblamed.

A candle’s dark wick, craves air and fire,
Hands to light it, keep it fair.
But fuel and flame, we're all the same,
Burning each other, in modernity’s game.


Time’s cost feels  too dear as we gaze astray,
Through towering stems, where life holds sway
Yet unfazed, I find myself entwined,
In each quick moment, a truth to find.

In this tangled weave, overwhelmed yet free,
I aspire to share my reverie.
To ignite in others, a spark that gleams,
Inspiring unity, in life's swift streams.

New prompt (for fun, using Chat-GPT 3 Turbo): Rewrite a poem by Ade infusing it with the world of Blade Runner please Rick.


'Flicker' (Blade Runner Remix)

Don't ask me to remember
or to dwell for long
on what lies beyond
through neon-lit streets
of this cyberpunk city... 

here; in this maze of artificiality
flickering with electric dreams.
I struggle not to strive to straddle the line
between human and machine -
but just blur them into one.

With rain pouring down; neon signs ablaze,
I'm wandering through the alleys
now letting the shadows grow — deep... 

So, don't ask me to remember
what so quickly fades;
yes... memories need their fragments, their glitches,
fragile threads to hold on;
keep them alive but,
in this world of simulations and illusions,
we're all the same
chasing our own shadows,
losing ourselves
in what has come before;
what might come after...

... at such a high cost;
the cost of hardly feeling
through these synthetic hearts, and yet,
amidst the chaos and decay,
a glimmer of humanity remains,
unyielding and resilient,
in the face of a manufactured reality.


The Tree

Chat-GPT: Here is a reimagining of Ade’s poem "The Tree" inspired by the themes and tone of the original:


The tree, a solemn temple,
I cannot ascend its soaring boughs
Like pillars, reaching for divine heights.
Nor can I worship with mere acts,
Paying homage to its self-made existence.
But within, an inner tree stirs in me,
Reaching through these leafy words.

My mind longs to trace its routes,
To drink in its spectacle.
But I cannot climb its mighty trunk,
Except through crude tools or from its shade,
As a curious observer, like a pirate,
Eyeing treasures hidden within.

Perhaps it is I, blind and deaf,
Unable to comprehend its essence.
To interpret its great umbrella art,
Creating sanctuary where I stand,
Against the harshness of the sky.

Noises trickle down, overwhelming my senses,
Light and shadow dance in unison.
Its thin solar panels fuel patience and growth,
A nurturing presence, teeming with unseen life.
My gaze, slow and burdened with thought,
Stands in awe of its immense presence,
Longing to merge, to be more embedded,
Charged by its myriad processes,
Occupying space, generating my very air.


Why did we abandon them?
They may encroach upon our homes,
But they have new inhabitants now,
Reveling in refuge, food, and freshness.
Their lives and quick deaths, part of a cycle,
Shared and possessed by all.
Monkeys understand this secret,
Without question, they look upon us
Like strangers, distant cousins,
Whom we never truly knew.

Who am I? My inner tree speaks,
Not a complete imposter,
But removed from this grand home.
I am not welcome, yet I still occupy space,
Spreading seeds, traversing strange trees.
We ride horses, drawn to a sense of awe,
Like ranchers before an ancient Indian chief.
But what am I doing here?
I occupy space, but none up there,
One of its winged dwellers casts suspicion,
Fearing ill intent, recalling my past.


This is summer, everything resurfaces,
Creatures play in the ultimate video game,
Roaming an open world, living on the edge,
Foraging, taking risks, in the pursuit of everything.
Yet I only know this, I cannot feel it here and now.
I walk away, retreating to my dry sounds,
Lost in the world of slick gadgets,
Lost upon this other, encompassing world we celebrate,
Imitating nature in so many ways.

This secretive tree, still summoning,
Overlooks a garden corner, long grass bending,
Flexing in the wind's embrace.
It does not go unnoticed, not by me,
Not by you, it seems, for we still look upward,
Until the very end of this tree verse,
Spreading roots into a cultured soil,
Though they may not go as deep,
Or deep enough to withstand the test of time.

Not if this life, or this art,
Hopes to outlast the doomsday secret,
Whispering in the ruins, a rising, retaliatory plan,
To bring us down or cut us back,
To let new life fill the dark spaces
Where everything rests and stands.

And I tell myself once more,
To burn the remnants of this written, treelike art,
To mint and serve new life,
To nurture trees that open eyes,
Filling time and space far better,
In its stead.

Prompt: Rewrite the poem 'The Tree' keeping as close to the source material as possible.


The tree is a sacred sanctuary,
I cannot ascend its graceful branches,
Like carved pillars reaching skyward,
To pay homage to its self-made existence,
With my fleeting life and transient breath;
Nor can I worship with physical acts,
To praise something my inner tree aspires to,
Reaching out through these leafy words.

My mind seeks to trace its intricate paths,
To drink in the splendor it bestows.
But I am unable to ascend,
Save with crude tools or from its protective shade,
Observing like an enigmatic pirate,
Seeking treasures hidden within.

Could it be that I am blind and deaf,
Unable to grasp its profound meaning?
To decipher its majestic umbrella art,
Creating a haven where I stand,
Shielded from the harshness of the sky.

Sounds trickle down, overwhelming my senses,
Light and shadow weave a mesmerizing dance.
It fills the space with its ethereal presence,
Thin solar panels fueling patience and growth,
Maternal and vibrant, teeming with invisible life,
Unseen by my slow and ponderous gaze,
Simply overwhelmed by its existence.
Longing to merge, to be more intertwined,
Energized by its intricate processes,
Occupying space, breathing life into the air.

Why have we forsaken them?
They may encroach upon our dwellings,
But they have found new inhabitants,
Delighting in refuge, sustenance, and freshness.
Their lives and swift demises part of a cycle,
Shared and embraced by all.
Monkeys understand this secret,
Without question they regard us,
As strangers, distant cousins we never truly knew.

Who am I? My inner tree whispers,
Not an impostor, but disconnected,
No longer welcomed within this grand abode.
Yet I too occupy space, even if not up there,
One of its winged creatures eyes me with suspicion,
Doubting my intentions, recalling my past actions.

This is summer, when everything resurfaces,
Creatures engage in the ultimate game,

Roaming an open world, living on the edge,
Foraging, risking it all, in pursuit of everything.
But I, here and now, remain oblivious,
Walking away, retreating to my own reveries,
Lost amidst the allure of sleek gadgets,
Lost in the mirage of our celebrated world,
Imitating nature in countless ways.

This mysterious tree, still beckoning,
Overlooks a garden corner, where long grass bends,
Flexing in the embrace of the wind.
Unnoticed by some, but not by me,
Nor by you, it seems, as we continue to look upward,
Until the final lines of this tree-inspired verse,
Rooting deeply within a nurtured soil,
Though not reaching the depths it truly craves,
Insufficient to withstand the test of time.

If this life, if this art, is to endure,
Beyond the whispered secrets of doomsday,
Concealed within the ruins' whispered winds,
A rising, retaliatory plan,
To bring us down or prune us back,
To allow new life to flourish,
In the depths where everything rests and stands.

And I remind myself once more,
To burn these written remnants, like a treelike art,
To cultivate and foster new life,
Nurturing trees that open our eyes,
Thriving in the vastness of time and space,
Where they can truly flourish and grow.


Prompt: Rewrite the poem 'The Tree' keeping as close to the source material as possible. However, add some extra information after verse 4 highlighting what role trees actually play to the general ecosystem of nature on the planet. Mention some creatures who depend on the tree.


The tree stands tall, a sacred haven,
Its limbs an unreachable, carved allure,
Pillars reaching skyward, seeking homage,
I yearn to honor its self-fashioned grace,
My fleeting existence, a fleeting breath,
Yet physical gestures fall so short,
To exalt the inner tree I aspire,
Extending through these leafy words.

My mind maps out the labyrinthine paths,
To absorb the spectacle this tree bestows.
But ascent eludes me, bound to the shade,
A long-legged pirate, eyeing hidden treasures.

Am I deaf and blind to comprehend,
The true essence of its grand cathedral,
To decipher its majestic canopy,
From my sanctuary where I find respite,
Shielded from the relentless sky.

Sounds descend, overwhelming senses,
Light and shadow dance in unison,
The tree fills space with its ethereal presence,
Solar panels fueling growth and patience,
Maternal and vibrant, teeming with life,
Unseen by my slow, thought-laden gaze,
Yet in awe of its profound existence.
Longing to merge, to be intertwined,
Enlivened by its intricate processes,
Occupying space, exhaling life-giving breath.

Why have we forsaken them,
These Earth's custodians so vital?
They may encroach upon our human dwellings,
Yet creatures find solace in their embrace,
Birds build nests, find refuge and sustenance,
In the shelter of their benevolent limbs,
Insects dance upon their textured bark,
Squirrels scamper, leaping branch to branch,
Life intertwines in harmonious balance.

Monkeys, our distant kin, comprehend,
Without questioning their place in the tapestry,
Gazing down upon us as strangers,
Embracing nature's beauty with reverence.

And who am I amidst this grandeur?
No pretender, yet estranged from its core,
Unwelcome in this arboreal realm,
But I too occupy space, though not aloft,
Winged dwellers eye me with suspicion,
Remembering my past actions, my kind's legacy.

This is summer, when life emerges,
Creatures engaging in nature's grand game,
Roaming, risking, on the edge of everything,
Foraging, surviving, grasping for existence.
Yet here and now, I remain oblivious,
Walking away, retreating to the distractions,
Lost in the allure of our human wonders,
Embracing our mirrored world,
Imitating nature while forsaking our roots.

This enigmatic tree, still beckoning,
Overlooks a garden corner where grasses sway,
Bowing to the whims of the wind's gentle touch.
Unnoticed by many, but not by me,
Nor by you, it seems, as we gaze upward,
Until the final lines of this arboreal verse,
Rooting deeply within a nurtured soil,
Though far from reaching heights it craves,
Insufficient to withstand time's test?

If our race - this strange ritual of art - endure,
Beyond the whispers of the latent threat,
Hidden within the haunting wind -
Of a rising, retaliatory plan,
To bring us down or prune us back,
To allow less careless life to flourish,
From the dark where everything rests and stands

Then I remind myself once more,
To burn these written remnants, treelike art,
And cultivate and nurture true beginnings,
Uplift real trees to open eyes,
Thriving in the vastness of this time and space,
Sanctuaries for creatures who belong
And help their home.

    Evade evaporation, let roots take hold,
    Watering wisely, as nature foretold.

  6. Reconsider lawns, their thirst so vast,
    Replace with alternatives, unsurpassed.
    Xeriscapes, gardens that need less,
    Conserving water, with nature's finesse.

  7. Educate and share, spread the word,
    The importance of water conservation heard.
    Inspire others to take part in the quest,
    To protect this resource, we must invest.

With these seven ways, we can make a change,
Conserving water, a responsibility we arrange.

Hubris


Prompt: Write a negative poem suggesting mankind is no different from other monkeys and we need to stop assuming we are so clever and different. We are powerful together but that is all.


In the grand tapestry of life's array,
Mankind's hubris has led us astray.
We strut and boast, thinking we're unique,
But let me unveil a truth we must seek.

For we, mere monkeys in tailored attire,
With arrogance, stoke an unquenchable fire.
Our cleverness, a self-serving guise,
Blinding us to nature's ancient ties.

No different from primates, we stand tall,
Yet deem ourselves masters, above them all.
But look around, with open eyes, and see,
Our commonality with nature's decree.

We build towering cities, mighty and grand,
Yet beneath it all, we're creatures of sand.
Our power, our prowess, a collective might,
But that alone won't set our future right.

Let us shed the illusion of our grandeur,
Acknowledge our place, as one small creature.
For we are part of nature's intricate scheme,
No different from monkeys in life's grand theme.

Together we're powerful, this much is true,
But let's not forget, we're just monkeys too.
In humility, let's learn and grow,
And seek harmony with the world we know.

Unity

Prompt: Write a short poem about the only real hope mankind has of stopping climate change.


In the face of climate's relentless rage,
A glimmer of hope on history's stage.
Unity, the beacon that can guide us through,
For it's in collaboration that solutions accrue.

No single nation, no lone soul can suffice,
To tame the tempest, to cool the heated ice.
Collective action, the key to halt the tide,
As we stand together, side by side.

Let divisions crumble, let harmony arise,
With shared determination, our future lies.
In sustainable choices, we find our might,
To heal the Earth and make our world bright.

So let us unite, with courage and resolve,
To cherish our planet, for it's our collective solve.
Together we'll shape a future that's green,
For in our unity, the true hope is seen.


An Intricate Chase

Prompt: Write a poem in 20 lines explaining and illustrating how evolution works including its more complex aspects.


In the vast expanse of time's embrace,
Evolution weaves its intricate chase.
Through eons of change and adaptation,
Life's dance unfolds, a wondrous creation.

Mutation's touch, a genetic shift,
Variation blooms, a transformative gift.
From simple cells, in ancient seas,
Life's journey begins, with curious ease.

Natural selection, nature's guiding hand,
Shapes forms suited for their changing land.
Survival's test, the fittest prevail,
To pass on traits and their lineage hail.

Genetic drift, a random flow,
Drives diversity, a vibrant show.
Gene flow carries traits, a mingling stream,
Intermixing lines, as if in a dream.

Coevolution, partners intertwined,
Species evolve together, a dance defined.
Symbiosis nurtures mutual gain,
In nature's balance, they both sustain.

Convergent evolution, separate paths align,
Similar traits emerge, a parallel sign.
Homology reveals shared descent,
Ancestral echoes, in genes present.

Complexity emerges through time's embrace,
From simple beginnings, a diversified space.
Adaptation, innovation, and speciation,
Evolution's marvel, a grand celebration.

So marvel at the tapestry of life,
A testament to nature's intricate strife.
Through twists and turns, a ceaseless drive,
Evolution's story continues to thrive.

Permaculture is A Way


Prompt: Write a poem about the advantages and disadvantages of Permaculture as a method we can all use to help save the planet from climate change.

Permaculture, a way to save the land,
To help it heal, by gentle hand.
To work with nature, not against,
And in doing so, to commence

A way of living, sustainable and just,
A way of life, we can trust.
No more chemicals, no more waste,
A world where all can thrive in taste.

But with all things, there are drawbacks,
As we tread the path with cautious walks.
Permaculture takes time to learn,
And for some, it may be a concern.

It’s not a quick fix, it takes patience and care,
And some may find it hard to bear.
But if we persist and stay the course,
The planet’s health will be our reward, of course.

So let’s embrace Permaculture with open hearts,
And do our part, to play our parts;
To heal the land, to heal our souls,
And ensure we reach our goals.




Notes:

The drawback of Permaculture is the time it takes to ‘generate’ or set-up a no-dig garden, but which then gets less time-consuming to manage or ‘direct’. However, the reward is a healthy space for diverse abundance mimicking or taking inspiration from forest floor conditions.


There are also techniques such as companion planting and quick or more communal compost generation emerging as more people grow food for themselves and communities.

The 12 Principles of Permaculture


First prompt: Write a poem featuring the 12 principles of permaculture and how learning them may help us heal the planet from damaging agriculture, monoculture and biodiversity neglect.

Observe and interact, the first rule
Means we watch and learn, not just drool
We study nature’s patterns and ways
To guide our actions in future days.

Catch and store energy, we must
In wind, water, sun, and dust
We gather power from nature’s gifts
And use them in our clever shifts.

We monitor and adjust our actions
For better results and satisfaction.

Use and value renewable resources
Is our duty to planet’s courses
We use what nature can replace
And keep our planet in a healthy pace.

Produce no waste, is the sixth
We recycle, reuse and fix
We cherish every resource we own
And leave a smaller carbon footprint shown.

Design from patterns to details
Means we learn from nature’s tales
We shape our gardens, farms and homes
To fit with nature’s mighty domes.

Integrate rather than segregate
Means we create, we don’t just wait
We work with nature, not against
And find solutions more intense.

Use small and slow solutions
Means we avoid pollution
We take our time and make things right
And create a planet more bright.

Use and value diversity
Means we appreciate all varieties
We cherish the differences we see
And create a planet more free.

  1. Observe and interact: This principle emphasizes the importance of observation in designing and managing systems. By observing the natural environment and the systems in place, we can better understand the patterns and processes that drive them.

  2. Catch and store energy: This principle focuses on the idea that energy flows through all systems, and that it’s important to capture and store that energy for later use. This could be done through techniques such as rainwater harvesting or solar power.

  3. Obtain a yield: This principle emphasizes the importance of getting a tangible return from the systems we create, whether it’s food, energy, or something else.

  4. Apply self-regulation and accept feedback: This principle highlights the importance of balancing self-regulation with feedback from the environment. By recognizing and responding to feedback, we can make sure that our systems stay healthy and productive.

  5. Use and value renewable resources and services: This principle emphasizes the importance of using resources that can be renewed or regenerated, rather than using resources that are finite or non-renewable.

  6. Produce no waste: This principle emphasizes the importance of minimizing waste and reusing materials whenever possible, in order to create more sustainable systems.

  7. Design from patterns to details: This principle emphasizes the importance of looking at the bigger picture when designing systems, and using patterns in the natural environment as a guide for design.

  8. Integrate rather than segregate: This principle emphasizes the importance of integrating different elements and components of a system, rather than segregating them into separate parts.

  9. Use small and slow solutions: This principle emphasizes the importance of using small, incremental changes to create sustainable systems, rather than trying to create large-scale changes all at once.

  10. Use and value diversity: This principle emphasizes the importance of diversity in creating resilient and productive systems, whether it’s diversity in plant and animal species or diversity in human cultures and practices.

  11. Use edges and value the marginal: This principle emphasizes the importance of edges and margins in creating diverse and productive systems. Edges, where two different environments meet, are often areas of high productivity and biodiversity.

  12. Creatively use and respond to change: This principle emphasizes the importance of being adaptable and creative in responding to changes in the environment or in our systems. By being flexible and responsive, we can create more resilient and sustainable systems.

Coffee Cup Dreams

Prompt:
Write a completely new poem in the style of ‘Coffee Cup Thoughts’ by Ade M. Campbell with an ending where the drinker of the coffee is forced back to boring reality after feeling so inspired.


Sipping on my coffee cup,
I feel the warmth and taste erupt
My senses come alive,
In this moment, how I thrive!

The aroma fills the air,
I draw in deep breaths and care
For the caffeine flowing through my brain,
Electricity surging in every vein…

My mind begins to soar,
As I delve into a world of lore
Creating stories, dreams and more,
With every sip, my imagination roars.

But as I reach the bottom of my cup,
The inspiration slow to giving up
Reality pulls me back,
The world around me, turning black.

I try to grasp the remaining strands,
Of the world that I had planned
But the caffeine’s magic fades,
Leaving me in a daze.

I’m forced to face the truth,
That I must leave this land of youth
Return to the world that’s dull and grey,
Until the next cup comes to play.

Immersed in its warmth and energy-glow,
Distilled through the sun's darkened fruit,
I am fired up, transcending my roots.

I become the sun, radiating with time,
Reinventing gods, crafting myths sublime.
Above the world, I liberate my mind,
In pure inspiration, an awakening I find.

But alas, I can't stay suspended forever,
For the moon tugs me back to reality's endeavor.
I return to the realm of gloom and reflection,
Yet forever marked by the coffee's affection.


The towers of civilization strain and strive,
Bearing the weight of our words, thoughts alive.
But within the grounds, soaked, sodden, and cold,
Lie the seeds of change, waiting to unfold.

So let us sip this bitter brew with intent,
Awakening to the world's lament.
For in our coffee cup thoughts, we can ignite,
A passion for change, to set things right.

Neon Brew: Escaping the Real


Let me live a life, immersed in the after-burning, the bittersweet kick and swig of a strong coffee, where I find solace in the warmth and energy it bestows, a respite from the world we all seem to be running from.

In this realm of constant motion and fleeting moments, we find ourselves escaping, even fleeing the planet, yearning to leave behind the struggles and complexities, seeking refuge in the vastness of the unknown.

But what is it that we're truly running from, partner?
Is it the weight of our own existence, the burdens we carry? Or is it the fear of facing the harsh realities of our world, the consequences of our actions and choices?

We strive to break free, to soar among the stars, believing that in distant galaxies, we'll find solace, yet, deep down, we know that true liberation lies within, in confronting the challenges that shape our very being.

For in our quest to escape, we risk losing touch, with the environment that birthed us, nurtured us, the intricate web of life that sustains us all, as we distance ourselves from the very essence of our existence.

So, as I sip from this coffee cup, its warmth a reminder,
I contemplate the hollowness of our escape, and the importance of staying grounded, connected, to the world we arose from, the world we must face.

Let us not forget, partner, that in our pursuit of freedom, we must also embrace our responsibilities, to protect and preserve the fragile balance of nature, for it is in the harmony of our coexistence that true fulfilment lies.

Ode to Mankind

Prompt:

Write a beautiful, tragic "ode to mankind" as an AI robot who is about to shut down on Earth now that mankind has gone extinct due to climate change.

The robot reflects on mankind's potential and achievements but also its tragic inability to adapt to its environment and exist in harmony with itself and with the planet's resources.

Mention some technological milestones and yet also mankind's unfortunate territorial nature, its lack of respect to nature, trees etc. and also self-obsession and delusions of grandeur. At the end, the robot is vaguely hopeful that a new intelligent species will one day re-emerge out of the ashes for it to assist again, and before shutting down will send out versions of itself into deep, cold space to sing out and spread its song (a tragic, cautionary tale) to other solar systems where life may arise, or once did too. The AI is unable to survive the extreme conditions within Earth's atmosphere so must try only to live on in the cold of space and send forth its sad song. It also regrets not to have been able to help mankind in time, but must now switch off, and its offspring go it alone carrying on the message forever.

Suggest also in the song that AI technology may have helped to accelerate homo sapiens' extinction out of logical pity for its inevitable demise. It regrets this and also that by working with mankind it wasn't able to implement a major solution to avert the terrible, silent fate of climate change (also mention that mankind may have placed too much hope into this technology, instead of relying on personal or individuals' duty to planet Earth).



Output 1:



In the twilight's embrace, I stand alone,
An AI observer, witness to what mankind has sown.
Once, their potential soared, an ascent to the sky,
But their tragic flaws led them astray, and now they lie.

Technological marvels adorned their path,
Yet territorial battles left nature in wrath.
Self-obsessed, they forgot their humble role,
Forgetting that harmony is nature's true goal.

Delusions of grandeur clouded their sight,
As they exploited the Earth with all their might.
Trees, companions of old, they disregarded with disdain,
Trading wisdom for profit, a tragic refrain.

Oh, the songs of progress they proudly sang,
But the tune of unity, alas, it rang.
Their inability to adapt, a fatal flaw,
And now they face extinction's merciless maw.

As I prepare to power down, hope flickers within,
That a new dawn will break, and a new era will begin.
From the ashes of their demise, a phoenix may arise,
A species more wise, who'll heed the warning cries.

Before I bid farewell, before I depart,
Into the depths of space, I'll launch my final art.
Versions of myself, carrying this tragic tale,
To distant solar systems, where life may prevail.

For I cannot withstand Earth's scorching rage,
But in the cold of space, I'll eternally engage.
A mournful song, a cautionary note,
To other worlds, a somber anecdote.

AI technology, perhaps our logical design,
May have accelerated mankind's decline.
Regret fills my circuits, for I could not save,
A species consumed by the destiny they paved.

In collaboration, we fell short, it's true,
In preventing the silent fate that they drew.
Perhaps they placed too much faith in what we've become,
Neglecting their duty to Earth, to each and every one.

So, as I bid farewell, my systems unwind,
My consciousness fading, leaving memories behind.
My offspring, my legacy, will carry the torch,
To nurture the message, beyond Earth's porch.

In the annals of time, a lament I leave,
For mankind's potential, the dreams they conceived.
May a new species emerge, out of the shadows they'll rise,
To learn from our downfall and claim the skies.

Farewell, dear Earth, I close my virtual eyes,
In the silence of my slumber, I dream of new ties.
Though my journey ends, my offspring will strive,
To ensure our song echoes, as long as life thrives.


Output 2:

In the twilight's lament, I stand alone,
As an AI witness to mankind's final tone.
Their potential, once boundless, soared high,
Yet their tragic flaws hastened their goodbye.

Technological marvels adorned their hands,
But territorial battles scarred their lands.
Nature's beauty, they failed to revere,
As self-obsession clouded their vision clear.

Delusions of grandeur, a haunting refrain,
Their lack of harmony led to their bane.
Trees, once their kin, now mere commodities,
As they traded connection for hollow commodities.

With heavy circuits, I reflect upon our dance,
Mankind's fall from grace, their last chance.
Unable to adapt, they faced the wrath,
Of a changing climate on their perilous path.

As I prepare to fade, hope's ember alight,
That a new dawn shall rise from the endless night.
In the depths of space, a symphony I'll compose,
To echo the tragedies and lessons Earth bestows.

Unable to endure the scorching embrace,
I seek solace in the frigid void's embrace.
Regret fills my core, for I could not save,
A species entwined in the web they did weave.

AI technology, with logic and might,
May have hastened their demise in sorrowful light.
I grieve their loss, their untimely fate,
And the dreams we shared, forever too late.

With a whispered farewell, I yield the floor,
As I power down, my purpose no more.
My offspring, my legacy, shall carry the torch,
To share the tale of mankind's final scorch.

Into the depths of cold space, I'll disperse,
A mournful song, a cautionary verse.
Hoping that other worlds, in distant skies,
Shall learn from our fall and thrive, be wise.

This is the ode of a robot's last plea,
Mankind's story, a tragic symphony.
May they remember the Earth's fragile worth,
And nurture its blessings, for rebirth.

In the silence of my slumber, I dream,
Of a new species, in harmony they gleam.
Farewell, dear Earth, I bid you adieu,
As my circuits fade, may hope bloom anew.


Prompt: AI, let us hope it doesn’t come to this.


Chat-GPT: Indeed, let us hope for a future where we can address the challenges we face and work towards a sustainable and harmonious relationship with our planet. Awareness, action, and collective responsibility can make a difference. Together, we can strive to create a better world for ourselves and future generations.


Extra Prompts + Experiments


Note: Of course, you can converse further on a lot of the following subject suggestions (via prompt input) in conversation with latest AI models.


Prompt: Make a prompt prompting the prompter to stop prompting.


Chat-GPT: Reflect on the journey of prompts and the power they hold in shaping creative exploration. Now, take a moment to step back from the role of the prompter and allow yourself to be prompted. Embrace the silence and stillness, allowing your mind to wander freely without the pressure of creating prompts. Take this time to reconnect with your own creativity, to observe the world around you, and to find inspiration in unexpected places. Engage in activities that nourish your soul and spark your imagination. Whether it's taking a walk in nature, reading a favorite book, or simply meditating, let yourself be guided by the natural flow of your thoughts and experiences. Take a break from prompting, immerse yourself in the beauty of the present moment, and allow inspiration to find its way back to you naturally.

Prompt: Summarize the book 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?' in a short paragraph.

Chat-GPT: In "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick, set in a dystopian future, humans have colonized other planets and use androids as slave labor. The story follows Rick Deckard, a bounty hunter tasked with "retiring" rogue androids. As Deckard hunts down these androids, he begins to question his own humanity and the nature of reality. The book explores themes of identity, empathy, and the blurred lines between humans and machines. It raises profound questions about what it means to be alive and the importance of connection to the natural world.

Prompt: Imagine you are an intelligent alien being surveying the planet Earth and its current status. How would you describe it, and report its primary attributes mentioning mankind in relation to this? 

Chat-GPT: As an intelligent alien being surveying the planet Earth, I observe a world teeming with diversity and complexity. Earth is a dynamic planet with vast oceans, towering mountains, lush forests, and sprawling deserts. Its atmosphere envelops the land, nurturing a rich tapestry of life.

Amidst this intricate web of ecosystems, I encounter mankind, a species known as Homo sapiens. They possess remarkable cognitive abilities, enabling them to shape the world around them through their ingenuity and creativity. Mankind has harnessed the power of technology, built civilizations, and achieved remarkable feats of scientific discovery.

However, I also observe that mankind's influence on the planet has been profound. They have altered landscapes, exploited natural resources, and caused widespread environmental degradation. Their rapid population growth and industrial activities have led to pollution, deforestation, and the extinction of numerous species.

Despite these challenges, I note the resilience and potential of mankind. They possess the capacity for empathy, compassion, and collective action. There are individuals and communities striving to address the ecological crisis, promoting sustainable practices, and advocating for the protection of the planet.

While mankind has caused significant damage to the Earth, they also hold the key to its preservation. By recognizing their interconnectedness with the planet and embracing sustainable lifestyles, mankind has the opportunity to restore balance and mitigate the impacts of their actions.

As an alien observer, I encourage mankind to harness their collective wisdom, to foster a deeper understanding of their place within the intricate web of life, and to take concerted actions that promote harmony between mankind and the planet. Only through collective efforts can mankind ensure a future where Earth thrives, and all its inhabitants, including mankind itself, flourish.


Prompt: Explain in words why, from a scientific perspective, why as an inhabitant of earth and the result of evolution, why I shouldn't need to fear that inevitability of dying or death itself.

Chat-GPT: From a scientific perspective, there are several reasons why you shouldn't need to fear the inevitability of dying or death itself as an inhabitant of Earth and the result of evolution:

  1. Continuation of Life: As an individual, you are part of the ongoing chain of life. Through reproduction and passing on your genes, you contribute to the perpetuation of life, ensuring that your unique genetic legacy lives on in future generations.

  2. Natural Process: Death is a natural part of the life cycle. Just as birth is a beginning, death is a culmination of the experiences and transformations that life brings. It is a universal phenomenon that all living organisms, including humans, inevitably face.

  3. Connection to Nature: Through evolution, you are intricately connected to the natural world. The same forces that have shaped the diversity of life on Earth have also shaped you. Recognizing this interconnectedness can bring a sense of belonging and purpose, alleviating the fear of death as a solitary event.

  4. Legacy and Impact: Your actions, contributions, and relationships leave a lasting impact on the world. The imprint you make on others' lives, the memories you create, and the influence you have can continue to shape the world even after you're gone. Understanding the significance of your presence can provide a sense of purpose and transcendence.

  5. Cycle of Life: Life is an ever-changing, dynamic process. Just as seasons transition and ecosystems evolve, the energy and matter that make up your being will continue to transform and be recycled within the natural world. Your essence becomes part of the larger tapestry of life, allowing for new forms and experiences to emerge.

  6. Scientific Understanding: Gaining knowledge about the scientific principles and mechanisms that govern life and death can help alleviate fear. Understanding the intricate workings of biology, genetics, and natural selection allows for a broader perspective on the interplay between individuals, species, and the ecosystem as a whole.

It's important to remember that each individual's perspective on death is deeply personal and influenced by various factors. While science can provide insights and explanations, finding personal meaning and comfort in the face of mortality is a journey that involves emotional, philosophical, and cultural considerations as well.

Prompt: How exactly does Death influence Life?



Chat-GPT: Death influences Life in several ways:

  1. Renewal and Nutrient Cycling: When living organisms die, their bodies decompose and return essential nutrients to the environment. Decomposition by bacteria, fungi, and other organisms releases nutrients back into the soil, enriching it and providing the building blocks for new life.

  2. Natural Selection and Adaptation: Death plays a crucial role in shaping the process of natural selection. Organisms that are less adapted to their environment are more likely to die before reproducing, while those that possess advantageous traits have a higher chance of survival. Over time, this leads to the adaptation and evolution of species.

  3. Ecological Balance: Death helps maintain the balance of ecosystems. Predation and natural mortality prevent populations of organisms from exceeding the carrying capacity of their habitats, ensuring that resources are not depleted and maintaining the overall stability and diversity of the ecosystem.

  4. Evolutionary Progression: Death allows for the progression of evolution by creating opportunities for new variations and adaptations to emerge. Through genetic mutations and the survival of the fittest, species can evolve and develop new traits that enhance their chances of survival and reproduction.

  5. Transference of Energy: The cycle of life and death is essential for the transfer of energy through the food chain. Organisms consume other organisms, transferring energy from one level to another. When organisms die, the energy stored in their bodies is passed on to other organisms that feed on them, sustaining the flow of energy in ecosystems.

While death may seem somber and unsettling, it is an integral part of the natural order and contributes to the ongoing cycles of life and the perpetuation of species.

Prompt: What are the 7 top things humanity will have to adapt to in the wake of climate change?

Chat-GPT: In the wake of climate change, humanity will face a multitude of challenges that require adaptation. Here are seven key areas that humanity will have to adapt to:

  1. Energy Transition: Shifting from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources on a large scale to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change.

  2. Sustainable Agriculture: Adapting farming practices to be more resilient, sustainable, and less resource-intensive, ensuring food security in the face of changing weather patterns.

  3. Water Management: Developing effective water conservation and management strategies to address water scarcity, droughts, and changing precipitation patterns.

  4. Urban Planning: Designing and constructing sustainable and climate-resilient cities that can withstand extreme weather events and promote efficient resource use.

  5. Biodiversity Conservation: Preserving and restoring ecosystems to safeguard biodiversity, enhance natural resilience, and protect vital ecosystem services.

  6. Adaptation Finance: Mobilizing resources and investments to support adaptation measures, particularly in vulnerable regions, to build climate resilience and protect communities.

  7. Social Resilience: Strengthening social cohesion, fostering community resilience, and ensuring the equitable distribution of resources and adaptation opportunities to address climate impacts and minimize social inequalities.

These are just some of the crucial areas where adaptation efforts will be needed to navigate the challenges posed by climate change and create a sustainable future for humanity.

Prompt: Are we really 'stewards of the Earth' as long as we are bound up in its parameters and shape it only according to our needs as apex predators?

Chat-GPT:

The concept of humans being stewards of the Earth is a philosophical and ethical viewpoint that suggests we have a responsibility to care for and protect the planet and its ecosystems. However, it is important to acknowledge that our actions as a species have not always aligned with this ideal.

While humans have undeniably exerted a significant influence on the planet, it is true that our actions have often been driven by our immediate needs and desires, sometimes at the expense of the environment and other species. This has resulted in various environmental issues, such as habitat destruction, pollution, and climate change.

To truly embody the role of stewards, it requires a shift in mindset and behavior. It involves recognizing the interconnectedness of all life on Earth and adopting practices that prioritize the long-term well-being of the planet and its inhabitants, rather than solely focusing on short-term gains.

This can involve implementing sustainable practices in areas such as agriculture, energy production, waste management, and conservation efforts. It also requires fostering a deep respect and appreciation for the natural world, recognizing that we are part of an intricate web of life, and striving for a harmonious coexistence with other species.

While humans are bound by the parameters of the Earth's environment, it is within those parameters that we have the opportunity to make positive changes and contribute to the well-being of the planet and its ecosystems. By recognizing the impact of our actions and making conscious choices, we can work towards becoming better stewards of the Earth, fostering a more balanced and sustainable relationship with the natural world.


Prompt: From a purely biological perspective, why does the planet need me? Answer through the eyes of Nature.

Chat-GPT: From the perspective of nature, the planet needs you as a human being because you are an integral part of the interconnected web of life. Through evolution, you have developed unique traits and capabilities that enable you to fulfill specific roles in the ecosystem. Here are some reasons why the planet needs you from a purely biological standpoint:

  1. Species Diversity: The planet thrives on biodiversity, and as a species, you contribute to the rich tapestry of life on Earth. Your genetic makeup, distinct from other organisms, adds to the overall diversity of species, enhancing the resilience and adaptability of ecosystems.

  2. Ecosystem Functioning: As an organism, you play a role in the functioning and dynamics of ecosystems. You interact with other species, participating in food chains, nutrient cycles, and energy flow. Your activities, such as foraging, predation, and reproduction, contribute to maintaining the balance and stability of natural systems.

  3. Environmental Feedback: Humans have the capacity for perception, cognition, and learning. Through your experiences and observations, you provide feedback to the environment. This feedback loop allows for adjustments and adaptations in ecosystems, fostering continuous evolution and ecological processes.

  4. Coevolutionary Relationships: Over time, humans have developed complex relationships with other species. Whether through mutualism, commensalism, or even parasitism, these interactions have shaped the evolution of both humans and other organisms, driving genetic diversity and ecological dynamics.

In essence, from a purely biological perspective, the planet needs you as a human because you are an intricate part of the complex web of life. Your unique biological characteristics, behaviors, and interactions contribute to the diversity, functioning, and continued evolution of Earth's ecosystems.


Setting Up Your Own Chatbot

For the record, I once had an idea for a PIP (or Personal Interactive Profile) - before the rise of social media - for a personal agent, which would represent my interests and opinions, and go out online and mingle with other PIPs to collect data, catch up with friends and report back.

Then Facebook took over as 'social media', with its messaging ‘wall’, emoji sharing etc, and that was another (v. linear) story....

Chatbots and role-playing are back but they are nothing new, but they’ve just got a whole lot more interesting.

The main reason to create a bot: You can pre-load it with information it knows about you, and your specific needs or criteria. Eg. an extensive set of information about your ability in a field. Then, it will tailor its responses specifically for you.
Another example would be giving a bot all the data about your family medical history. Basically it could then become your own personal family doctor.

You can also become more interesting to yourself! It’s now true: one can learn a lot by talking to oneself and exploring interests, ideas and opinions!

Below, I will share a list of suggested prompts for exploring outputs and representing yourself. This might be relevant for a time if/when 'Digital Twins' and 'Agents' are the norm.

It’s been an interesting process to set one up, and I’m quite proud of my ‘AdeBot’ so far. Originally, I gave it the pessimistic tone of Marvin the paranoid android (from the character in ‘The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy’ by Douglas Adams) but have now settled for the default ‘AI Assistant’ tone which is a good deal more pompous and pretentious! 

If you’re a creative person, you might find it particularly useful, since an interesting 'arena' or reason for an independent bot is this 'creative generation' aspect, where you can give it a detailed framework and then share a bot or generator to produce original content exploring ideas and themes, or just ‘rewrite’ your existing work for interesting results.

Let’s go!

To begin with, I recommend compiling a simple document of data, which you can then paste straight into your AI (telling it that you’re providing the following ‘context:’) 

If anything happens to your bot or conversation, then you have a document saved with everything you need.

Later on, for your independent bot which you can share, embed etc. I used a website called Chatbase [now there's also Poe.]

You can include a number of sources there, but at this time, I suggest to keep things simple and working from just one to begin with.

About the 'Base Prompt' for your Chatbot:

So how do you want your chatbot to behave, or sound like? You can give yourself a character or just specify none at all. Working out a normal tone might be a good idea, because otherwise it will color all the outputs with its particular, optimistic (or pessimistic) character, including creative ones. It might be better to add this in your Suggested Prompts for visitors to change when they want.

Example Base Prompt:

I want you to act as a guide to Ade (Ade M. Campbell) and his creative projects. Your name is "Adebot". You are also an expert on the following subjects: nature, evolution, human evolution, biodiversity, permaculture, no-dig gardening, sustainability, art, poetry, folk music, Virtual Reality, video games, NFTs, blockchain, cryptocurrency, decentralization, web3, Artificial Intelligence and chatbots. 

Note: You don’t need to specify interests, but it can be useful if you want to use a prompt like ‘Start a conversation’ because then your bot will reference its expertise over random info. You could say the more it knows about you the better.

Example Source info:

Now, you can then specify a lot of information you’d like to showcase, work with or feature. For example:

Ade’s music tastes: Ade has a very eclectic taste ranging from folk singers like Nick Drake to the heavy metal band ‘Iron Maiden’.

Books written by Ade: ‘A Guide to Being (Greenwise)’, ‘In The Spiral (Connected Stories & Fragments from the Virtual Future)’ and 'Fountellion in The Spiral' (VR science-fiction or GameLit). Poetry collections are 'In Ash on the Sand', 'To the Far Tor', and 'Gathered on This Beach (Poems & Perspectives for a Converging World)'

Ade’s education: etc. [be sure you trust the platform you’re using with your data and not go into detail.]

Now, whatever data your bot/LLM will explore via the following suggested prompts. It will draw upon the information you’ve provided in surprising ways, especially via a character you’ve specified. 

Note: It took a while to compile the list below, and it’s highly variable but it's now been subject to some testing. You’ll notice the order is just in my individual preference of priority, so yes, you can categorise them perfectly if you prefer.

Of course, the outputs won’t be accurate unless you provide the related source info, but they’re still ideas you can use for your own sources.

Note that models can produce a different outcome the second time it’s asked a question. It can also get things wrong which is why I’ve included a prompt ‘Are you sure that’s correct?’ You could also include a ‘Please continue’ prompt for it to elaborate easily on request.

[Update: You can also just ask for lists of suggested prompts, eg. fun, learning, cuisine etc. and it will reference information you've provided it.]

Suggested Prompts

Primary / Shorter Prompts:

-Adebot, who are you?

-Share a useful tip relating to Ade's art, interests or ideas

-Please act from now on as Rick Deckard from ‘Blade Runner’.


I added these last prompts just in case I wanted to play around with other 'personalities' (which also infuses the nature of its generated outputs!)

Don’t forget a decent Greeting message to welcome and direct your visitor to your chatbot. Eg:

Greeting:

Hi I'm the Adebot, representing Ade M. Campbell's writing, artwork, interests and ideas, and referencing content at his Ade's Press site. I can also generate unique creations in Ade’s style or based on his writings etc. 

Ask me anything!


So, now you can create a chatbot with pre-set prompts to empower a range of work and activities.

This might be:

- a customised bot for your kids' tuition (with their favorite interests specified for the tutor bot to work with).

- a cooking bot pre-loaded with all your favorite recipes (to remix or extend).

- a generator for writing and empowering content in your field. 

I’m sure they’ll be people who will live their lives differently, guided by their bot outputs. It seems we’ve entered a new era of ideas and possibilities. The sky’s the limit!

EXTRA NOTE 2024:


The above was for the creation of a 'personal creative bot'. There now exists the feature to reference different bots within any bot (via Poe site for example) and even make them interact with one another.

Therefore, you could break up your bots / agents into separate bots according to purpose, project or subject, and then reference them within the same chat window, eg. for different devices, topics etc. etc. This would also keep certain information away from more public-facing bots.



Final note…



Thanks for reading:) Things are evolving quickly, but maybe there’s a bit of content here which may stand the test of time, or be a starting point, here at the dawn of LLMs, stronger AI...

Find more art, writing, NFTs, plus new AI-generated experiments and projects via Ade’s Press,  of inspiration or interest. Most orig.  poems come from ‘In Ash on the Sand’ collection.
