Something bigger than the internet is happening right now, and if you haven’t yet heard of ChatGPT you better start looking it up and doing some research (now).
In brief, it's a free Ai platform that will provide you with an array of answers to some of the most complex questions. It will also write you cover letters for jobs, essays for uni, movie scripts, novels, and computer code among many other things.
Its current version (ChaptGPT 3.0) has an IQ of 147 which is higher than 99.99% of the world's population. Apparently, the next version to be released will have 10 times the capacity as this version. It has passed the Bar (which means it can practice law) and has passed the CPA (so it has accountancy skills too!)
I asked it "Tell Me The 5 Steps To Enlightenment?" This is what it said…
“Understanding the self: The first step towards enlightenment is understanding who we are and what makes us truly happy. This requires introspection and self-reflection. By examining our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, we can gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and what motivates us.
Developing self-awareness: Self-awareness is key to enlightenment. This means paying attention to our thoughts and emotions in the present moment, and learning to observe them without judgment. When we are self-aware, we can see our patterns of behavior and thought more clearly, which can help us make positive changes in our lives.
Cultivating compassion and empathy: Compassion and empathy are essential components of enlightenment. When we cultivate these qualities, we become more attuned to the needs of others, and more able to help those in need. This can lead to a sense of inner peace and happiness, as well as a more fulfilling life.
Cultivating wisdom: Wisdom is the ability to see things as they truly are, and to understand the underlying causes of our experiences. This requires a deep understanding of the nature of reality and the interdependence of all things. By cultivating wisdom, we can develop a clearer perspective on life and a greater sense of meaning and purpose.
Letting go of attachments: The final step towards enlightenment is letting go of attachments. This means letting go of our attachment to material possessions, personal relationships, and our own ego. When we release these attachments, we are freed from the constraints of our own mind, and can experience a sense of infinite peace and freedom.
By following these 5 steps, we can begin to move towards a state of enlightenment, where we experience a deeper sense of meaning and purpose, and a greater connection with the world around us. Through self-reflection, compassion, wisdom, and detachment, we can awaken to our true nature and find lasting happiness and inner peace.”
So there you have it. I would have included daily meditation in there but all in all, it's a great response. How do you feel about Ai? Is Ai a good thing or bad thing? I’d love to hear.
