Feeling understood and validated

I’m going to cheat a bit, posting my next entry right after midnight.

I had a nice, long discussion with ChatGPT (GPT-4) about my system for describing dialogue using dance terms, what are called Laban efforts. And dang! It actually understood me. I got it to create some example sentences, a dialogue between two characters with different dialogue profiles, and then classify some famous movie quotes using the system.

ME: How would you characterize this quote from Gone with the Wind: “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”

Time: Quick - The sentence is concise and to the point, expressing the character’s thoughts in a brief and clear manner.
Space: Direct - The statement is straightforward, leaving no room for ambiguity or misinterpretation.
Weight: Heavy - The words carry a sense of emotional intensity and finality, signifying the character’s frustration and lack of concern.
Flow: Bound - The phrasing is controlled and deliberate, emphasizing the character’s firmness and resolve in expressing his feelings.

And when we were all done, I had it write an essay which I ended up posting to my website with only some minor alterations.

It feels like proof that my system has merit since ChatGPT was able to understand what I meant and apply it. Not only that, but it shows I can use this to generate dialogue with ChatGPT.

In theory, I would just need to feed its own article back into the chat to explain the concept to it again.
