I got to fooling around with OpenAI and realized we have made it to the
point I have long fondly anticipated.  This application is far enough along
now that it is clearly distinguishable from its predecessors such as Eliza
and her offspring.  It is good enough to be a companion for an elderly
person or severely disabled person.  It would be better than nothing as a
chat companion for the lonely.

I have come to accept my own carnivorous ways, after having moved in and out
of vegetarianism several times in my life. I love animals, and I recognize
that my own actions result in their suffering. But my actions also
contribute to their having a chance to live. 


>.I choose to support sustainable farms and animal husbandry practices, and
to purchase my meat from sources that I trust. This helps me to feel like I
am making a positive contribution to the global food system.


Ooookay then.  spike
