I Asked ChatGPT To Bully Me
Artificial Intelligence really sticks in my craw, but for different reasons than you might think. I find it overly positive, civil, and unwilling to berate me. So I set out to make ChatGPT bully me. After all, if the robot is going to take my job, I may as well justify hating it. All things considered, here are my results:
As the World Burns
Note: We have elected not to include the Tarot images in this article. They are easily accessible online. I read Tarot virtually every night of the week for paying clients. The Tarot is simply an old-fashioned AI, a primitive computer program that proves the ancient dicta of "As Above, So Below."; i.e. the Macrocosm (the Universal Mind or Will), is reflected in the Microcosm (tea leaves, the layout of cards, Tarot images). The narratives revealed by Tarot are often startlingly accurate, and uncanny, and the layout unfolds the "narrative" revealed is an extrapolation of events in answer to the Querent's inquiry. The Reader's job is to tell the "story" as revealed and interpret the future based both on intuition and those arcane, timeless images.
10/788/14 s.d. Hello, Lover Sometimes these days for me move slower, as if this beautiful planet has been put in a state of pause. I feel the time passing in the briefest moments, watching the suns as they cross each other in the sky, seeing their colors when they set at night, I am reminded that the universe is moving around me, right in front of my eyes, but it seems that it is so fast and I am not sure whether it is better to move so fast and see nothing, or to stand so still and see everything.

“Seventeen minutes to final boarding,” The app on my holo-device alerted me. Seventeen minutes. That was how long I had to save Evangeline.
I’d fallen off the wagon, again, and felt ashamed of all that I had done to hurt my family. I was just fifteen years old when I had my first rum and Coke at a Las Vegas casino. It didn’t help that my parents had a well-stocked liquor cabinet at home. That began my lifelong misery of fighting and losing, getting my AA tokens, hitting the liquor store after a meeting with money I “borrowed.” Something about the intoxication seemed to be the anchor to my soul; nothing else could match it. Addiction is a disease, and I was fully infected.

The Enigmatic Universe: A World of Infinite Potential in Stillness"
Before the era of quantum mechanics, it was widely believed that in the darkest, coldest corners of the cosmos, where there was no light, no motion, and temperatures plummeted to their lowest, absolutely nothing occurred. These desolate regions were typically associated with the immense voids far from our solar system or any star. It seemed logical that in such a vacuum, the energy would be reduced to nil.
