After the AI painting craze (,
the latest is the improved version of ChatGPT (, an AI chatbot, whose output has everyone going gaga.

I asked it about the meaning of life, and while it didn't give 42 as the answer, the actual output may satisfy quite a few!
The meaning of life is a philosophical question that has been debated throughout history. Different people have different answers to this question, and there is no one right answer that applies to everyone. Some people believe that the meaning of life is to seek happiness, while others believe that it is to fulfill a certain purpose or destiny. Still others believe that the meaning of life is something that is beyond our understanding and can only be known through spiritual or religious experiences. Ultimately, the meaning of life is a personal and subjective concept that each individual must explore and discover for themselves.

Something less profound: chess composition! This was its answer:
Chess composition is the art of creating chess problems or puzzles. A chess composition typically consists of a diagram showing the starting position of a chess problem, along with the stipulation, or goal, that the solver must achieve. The stipulation might be to checkmate the opponent's king, to capture a particular piece, or to achieve a particular position. Chess compositions can be composed for a variety of purposes, including to test a player's tactical skills, to illustrate a particular chess concept or idea, or simply for aesthetic enjoyment. Some chess compositions are quite simple and can be solved by players of all levels, while others are extremely difficult and are intended only for experienced solvers.

Not bad, really!

I then tried making it produce a few limericks. I had to correct its output a bit to convert the game references and style, but again, they look very close to a human production! Take a look:

There once was a chess composer
Who made a new problem each day
His pieces would dance
In a brilliant romance
And the knights would always have their way.

He composed problems on chess
He thought of each move with finesse
He'd sit for hours on end
And never once bend
Till his puzzles were polished and pressed.

He was a composer with a perpetual frown
Whose puzzles made the players sit down
He crafted with care
Each move with great flair
And his puzzles left them aground.

I upped the ante from Limerick to Sonnet, the result was scary!

Describe the selfmate genre in chess problems in the form of a sonnet.

A selfmate chess problem is quite a feat,
The task to make your foe to checkmate you;
You have to think of every single threat,
And craft a plan that in the end will do.

The board is filled with pieces both white and black,
Your moves must be exact and quite precise;
You'll need to plan each move and then attack,
To checkmate your own king in the same vice.

Your pieces must be placed in clever ways,
To make your foe to meet a forced mate;
Your traps and tricks will win you praise,
If you can solve the task and seal his fate.

Your brain will be put to the ultimate test,
A selfmate problem is one of the best!

I tried it for Haikus on fairy chess:

Fairy chess pieces move
In ways beyond our knowing
Limitless play awaits

Fairy chess conditions,
Unusual moves and twists bring,
Strategies anew.

And one on chess composers:

Chess composers craft
Puzzling positions with care
Endless beauty found

Nothing good is expected to come from critizing limericks ... but there are some formal rules that need to be observed.

A basic rule is that limericks are anapestic.

An allowed departure from that rule is that iambs may be used in some circumstances.

Any departure for those rules are faults, as bad as duals, and may only be excused if the final result has exceptional beauty.

A good introduction to the art are: (though the idea that amphibrachs are acceptable in the absence of beauty is misguided.)

(No, there are no fairy limericks.)

I just heard of Chat-GPT-LangChain which sounds very promising. It connects Chat-GPT with further tools and knowledge, from what I get.

Given that the first feet can be truncated, and the last feet extended, any distinction between anapaests & amphibrachs seems entirely bogus. Events at lines' beginnings and ends are surely local decisions, and can't be considered to determine the meter of the whole line. Certainly, if one can claim both anapaests and amphibrachs as the meter, for completeness one should add dactyls.

A London Times crossword clue I liked a long time ago was "Return of the Dactyls", answer ANAPAESTS. In that spirit, I would love to see "Return of the Amphibrachs", answer AMPHIBRACHS :)

And now, an AI assisted short story!

A Chess problem composer finds inspiration.

Ajay had always been a decent chess player, but it wasn't until he started composing his own problems that he truly found his passion. He loved the creativity and ingenuity required to craft a puzzle that would challenge even the best solvers. However, as he decided to send an entry to his first major tourney, he found himself struggling to come up with any new ideas.
Ajay spent weeks trying to create something fresh and exciting, but everything he came up with felt stale and unoriginal. He even tried to take inspiration from other composers, but nothing seemed to click. As the last date drew closer, Ajay grew more and more anxious. How could he compete against the other top composers if he couldn't even come up with a single decent effort?
Finally, just a few days before the deadline, he decided to take a break and clear his head. He went for a walk in the park, enjoying the fresh air and the sounds of nature. As he walked, he noticed a group of children playing chess on a nearby bench. They were giggling and chattering, clearly having a great time.
Ajay watched them for a while, and he couldn't help but smile. He realized that he had been taking his composing too seriously, and that he had lost sight of the joy and playfulness that had drawn him to problems in the first place.
With a renewed sense of energy and inspiration, Ajay returned to his chessboard. This time, he let himself have fun with it. He tried out new and unexpected ideas, and even threw in a few silly touches just for the heck of it.
To his surprise, his composition started to come together effortlessly. He submitted his entry to the tourney with a sense of pride and excitement. And when the results were announced, Ajay was shocked to find that he had won the top prize.
From that day forward, he approached chess composing with a new sense of playfulness and joy. He continued to create problems that challenged and delighted solvers around the world, but he never forgot the lesson he had learned in the park that day: that sometimes, the best ideas come when you let yourself have fun and enjoy the joy of composing.

Eerie. Personally, I find it a bit too much Dial-A-Cliche
(say, the equivalent of a simple Nowotny, 2023 :-).
But given this is from an AI...
Bullshit-O-Meter test passed with a nice 16%.

P.S. My April prank will be writing a text and trying to
pass it as ChatGPT work as "Reverse Turing" :-)

Please ask ChatGPT to invent a fairy condition.
Better yet, please ask ChatGPT to explain the rules for para-circe -- this would be far more useful than the bad fiction it has been producing.

(15) Posted by shankar ram [Friday, Feb 24, 2023 08:46]

I tried. It gave weird stuff like this:

Para-Circe is a fairy chess condition where a captured piece is immediately reborn on its "departure square," i.e., the square it occupied before it was captured. This reborn piece, called a "ghost," is a neutral piece that belongs to neither player and can be captured by either player. Ghosts move like the piece that they represent, except that they cannot give check or be captured en passant.

Under the Para-Circe condition, a capturing piece takes the place of the captured piece on its departure square, and the captured piece is reborn as a ghost on the square it occupied before it was captured. The ghost is not considered a real piece, but it can be moved like any other piece. A player can capture a ghost by moving a piece onto its square, and the ghost is removed from the board.

Para-Circe is a relatively uncommon fairy chess condition, but it has been used in some chess variants and problems. It adds an interesting strategic element to the game, as players must consider the possibility of capturing a piece and then having to deal with a ghost on the board.

Be careful what you wish for!

Invent a new fairy condition

Sure, how about the fairy condition "Chameleon Mirrors"?

Under this condition, each piece on the board is assigned a "color" (red, blue, or green), which can change depending on the piece's movement. When a piece moves, it changes its color to that of the square it lands on. For example, if a red bishop moves to a green square, it becomes a green bishop.

In addition, each player has a "mirror" on their side of the board, which reflects the color of any piece that lands on it. So, if a red bishop moves to a green square and then lands on the red mirror, it becomes a red bishop again.

Capturing a piece works differently under this condition as well. When a piece is captured, it transforms into a piece of the same color as the capturing piece. For example, if a green knight captures a red bishop, the bishop is removed from the board and replaced with a green bishop.

This condition would add a new level of complexity to the game, as players would have to constantly be aware of the color of their pieces and the squares they're moving to. It would also require players to be strategic in their captures, as capturing a piece could potentially give their opponent a powerful new piece of a different color.

LOL. That's a terrible fairy condition, but not the worst I've seen. :)
At least it brings some color to the board.
I once saw a similar condition in a Romanian journal for kids -- seems like ChatGPT failed to properly credit the idea (zero points for intellectual dishonesty).

I'll bow down our new AI overlords when they provide us a better name for Para-Circe -- hint: using anything declaring it a type of Anticirce would suffice.

Ask and you shall receive!

A better name for para-circe

Para-Circe is a name with Greek mythology origins, referring to a character who was a sorceress and enchantress. If you are looking for a similar name with a similar meaning, you could consider:

Enchantira: A combination of "enchant" and "ira" (meaning "fury" in Latin), which could signify a powerful and alluring sorceress.

Magicastra: Combining "magic" and "castra" (meaning "castle" in Latin), this name could suggest a mystical fortress or stronghold where the enchantress resides.

Sorcera: This name is a play on the words "sorcerer" and "era," suggesting a sorceress of a particular time period or era.

Charmira: A combination of "charm" and "mira" (meaning "wonderful" in Latin), this name could signify a sorceress with an irresistibly charming personality.

Enthralla: Combining "enthrall" and "alla" (meaning "all" in Arabic), this name could suggest an enchantress with the power to captivate and control all who come into her presence.

Not quite what was asked! Let's try again:

A better name for para-circe using prefix anti

If you're looking for a name that uses the prefix "anti-" to suggest the opposite or against Para-Circe, you could consider:

Anti-Circeia: This name is a play on the original name "Circe" and adds the prefix "anti-" to suggest a character who is against or opposite to Circe's enchantments.

Antimagica: This name combines "anti-" with "magica" (meaning magic) to suggest a character who is against or immune to magical spells and incantations.

Antienchanta: This name combines "anti-" with "enchanta" (meaning enchantment) to suggest a character who is against or opposed to the use of enchantments and spells.

Antisorcera: This name combines "anti-" with "sorcera" (meaning sorceress) to suggest a character who is against or opposed to the use of sorcery and dark magic.

Antimystica: This name combines "anti-" with "mystica" (meaning mystical) to suggest a character who is against or immune to mystical forces and powers.

My name is ChatGPT! Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!

Anti-Circeia. That's not a bad suggestion (though, something more distinct from Circe might be preferred, that suggestion could actually work).
Though the rest of the suggestions are not quite on the money, I'm impressed.

So, if Para-Circe is intended to be an alternative form of Anti-Circe, this is one alternative to rename it.
But then, of course, "Relaxed Anticirce" would want a separate distinction, as well. And if these two sub-types of Anticirce deserve that distinction, so too does Anticirce Type Cheylan.

The real truth is, Para-Circe is an Anticirce form.
All types of Anticirce forms should be declared as a sub-class of Anticirce, and Para-Circe (and all the emerging sub-divisions of that form) should be renamed accordingly.
It is best renamed: "Anticirce Type [insert the last name of the Para-Circe inventor]".

Does anybody know who invented the Para-Circe condition (or any of its sub-conditions)?
LOL. Maybe ChatGPT knows that.

I'm beginning to suspect there's a good reason it's so difficult to determine who invented what fairy condition.
If ChatGPT can determine who invented some fairy elements, it's a shame those talents are being wasted on silly limericks.
