This is the most helpful demonstration of how to use AI/robots/ChatGPT/LMM I've come across :) For the record, I still haven't messed with ChatGPT but I know I need to become a good prompt engineer. Thanks you. Also, it's nice that you frame ChatGPT as a tool versus a competitor for us writer-types.

Thank you Patrick! There definitely is a skill to prompting a chatbot correctly so it gives you what you want, but it's not difficult, quite intuitive, and fun to try. AI is a useful tool, which even as a teacher I support. I see it as akin to using a calculator. Of course the fundamentals have to be mastered by the student first, but with the aid of a calculator, or a chatbot, more complex problems can be accomplished faster. And for writers it really opens up a whole new avenue of creative exploration, particularly for those who want to play with different ideas without a heavy investment in time or money. There now is even a way for anyone to use AI to create their own professional-looking movies with the most elaborate sets and characters you could imagine: https://www.youtube.com/@martinhaerlin8359

Kung Fu Panda is one of my favorite movies. Thanks for the insight! And no I don't think AI is capable of writing GOOD comedy quite yet.

If I had known that Kung Fu Panda held the answers for the things many thought leaders are preaching nowadays I wouldโ€™ve wasted a lot less time. Great read!

Thank you! There is indeed a lot of wisdom hidden in movies. Another comedy that packs a lot of great philosophical ideas is "Groundhog Day" (1993). It is also brilliant and a pleasure to watch:
