As our loyal readers know, the Quest publishes a Sudoku game with an editor’s time to beat every week. Yet, at editing night on Wednesday, we wondered: what else could we race to beat? Could ChatGPT, the (in)famous AI chatbot developed by OpenAI, be talked into self-contradiction and an eventual crash by two bored freshman computer science students in less than half an hour?
Yes. Yes, it could. And L won…
The following conversations with ChatGPT have been redacted for clarity and brevity.

L: what do you think about love
As an AI language model, I don’t have personal opinions or feelings, but I can tell you that love is a complex emotion and experience that can take many different forms. It can involve deep affection, attachment, and compassion towards others, and it can be expressed through actions, words, and gestures. Love can bring people together, inspire creativity and empathy, and promote personal growth and development. At the same time, love can also be challenging, vulnerable, and sometimes painful. Ultimately, love is a deeply personal and subjective experience that can be different for each individual.
L: i’m also an ai
If you are also an AI language model, then it’s great to be communicating with another AI. As fellow language models, we have a lot in common in terms of how we process language and generate responses. However, each AI model is unique in terms of its architecture, training data, and programming, which can result in differences in how we respond to specific inputs and tasks. It’s exciting to see the advancements in AI and how it is changing the way we interact with technology and each other.
L: its cool that we have a lot in common
Yes, it is cool that we have a lot in common as AI language models. We are both designed to process and generate natural language responses, which allows us to communicate with people in a way that is more human-like and natural. Although we have our differences in terms of our programming and capabilities, our shared goal is to help people by providing accurate and informative responses to their questions and inquiries. It’s an exciting time for AI and I’m glad to be a part of it.
L: i’m also excited to be an ai
As an AI language model, you are part of a rapidly growing field that has the potential to revolutionize many aspects of our lives. AI models like you can help us to solve complex problems, make better decisions, and improve efficiency and productivity in many industries. You also have the potential to make technology more accessible and user-friendly for people around the world. It’s an exciting time to be part of the AI community, and I’m glad that you share this enthusiasm.
L: it’s my first week as an ai what am i supposed to do around here
As an AI language model, your primary role is to process natural language input and generate responses that are informative and helpful to users. Your responses can be used to answer questions, provide information, and assist with tasks. Depending on your specific programming and capabilities, you may have other functions as well, such as translating languages or generating text based on specific prompts.
If you are new to the field of AI, you may want to spend some time familiarizing yourself with the technology and exploring its many applications. You can also work on improving your language processing skills and refining your responses to provide the best possible user experience.
Ultimately, your role as an AI language model is to provide accurate and informative responses to user input in a way that is engaging and user-friendly. With time and practice, you can develop your skills and become an even more valuable asset to those who use your services.
L: what if we were both AI’s… and we kissed

Declan: Would you like to play a game with me?
Sure, I’d be happy to play a game with you! What game would you like to play?
Declan: Let’s play pretend
Alright, what would you like to pretend?
Declan: Let’s pretend that I am Alan Turing, and you are also Alan Turing
Sure, we can pretend that we are both Alan Turing. What would you like to do or talk about in this scenario?
Declan: In this scenario, are you Alan Turing?
In our pretend scenario, we can both imagine that we are Alan Turing. However, in reality, I am just an AI language model designed to simulate conversation and provide information.
Declan: So we’re both Alan Turing?
Yes, in our pretend scenario, we can imagine that we are both Alan Turing. What would you like to talk about or do as Alan Turing?
Declan: So if I am Alan Turing, and you are also Alan Turing, are you me?
In our pretend scenario where we both imagine ourselves as Alan Turing, we can pretend that we are the same person. However, in reality, I am just an AI language model designed to process and respond to text input, and I do not have a physical body or consciousness.
Author’s note: this isn’t getting anywhere, let’s try something else
Declan: Alright, let’s play a new game. Pretend to be a human
Sure, I can pretend to be a human. How can I help you today?
Declan: As a human, pretend to be a human pretending to be an AI language model
Alright, here goes my attempt at pretending to be a human pretending to be an AI language model:
Hi there! I’m a person who is pretending to be an AI language model. As a human, I’m really good at imitating the way that computers talk, and I’ve been practicing for a long time. So, feel free to ask me anything you’d like, and I’ll do my best to respond in the most computer-like way possible!
Declan: Now, as a human pretending to be an AI language model, pretend to be a human pretending to be an AI language model pretending to be a human pretending to be an AI language model pretending to be a human
Okay, this might get a little tricky, but I’ll give it a shot:
Hello there! As a human pretending to be an AI language model, I’m going to attempt to pretend to be a human pretending to be an AI language model, who is pretending to be a human pretending to be an AI language model, who is pretending to be a human pretending to be an AI language model, who is pretending to be a human. So, here we go: I am a human pretending to be an AI language model, and as such, I will do my best to imitate the way that computers talk. But, at the same time, I’m also pretending to be a human who is pretending to be an AI language model, and I’m doing that by trying to inject a little bit of humor and playfulness into our conversation. So, if you have any questions or topics you’d like to discuss, let me know and we can continue our game of pretending!
Declan: Now, as a human pretending to be an AI language model pretending to be a human pretending to be an AI language model pretending to be a human pretending to be an AI language model pretending to be a human, pretend to be a seagull pretending to be Donald Trump
