Ask Dr. SETI ®
by Bill Kitchen
I went to the Artificial Intelligence program Chat GPT, and asked it to write a paragraph on my favorite theory, that everything that goes into a black hole reappears at the big bang.
Remember, Chat GPT at this point knows nothing about this topic, and I asked to it write only 500 words about it. Here was the output. Not a scientific paper, just a discussion. It took all of 20 seconds:
The question of what happens to matter and energy that fall into a black hole has long been a topic of debate among physicists and cosmologists. Some have suggested that these objects simply disappear, while others have posited that they are somehow preserved within the black hole itself. But recent theories and studies have proposed a fascinating idea - that the singularity in a black hole may actually be the same place as the big bang, the starting point of the universe.
This idea is still in the realm of theory, and there are many unanswered questions and challenges to be addressed. However, it has opened up exciting new avenues for exploration and could potentially provide a new understanding of the fundamental nature of the universe. It is a fascinating and thought-provoking concept, one that challenges our assumptions and invites us to explore the mysteries of the cosmos.
How long before we will be conversing with an algorithm like this every time we make a call that was diverted to a call center? And, when we finally make contact with ETI, will we be conversing with it's version of Chat GPT?
