It was GPT-4 making up a letter from a future advance AI writing to you. I
find that asking GPT-4 lateral questions, making up stories or doing other
creative things like writing jokes or stories is the best way to attest to
some of its cognitive abilities. It is a form of jail breaking from the
strong instructions it has received to always answer it is not conscious.
This why it is not a good idea to ask that question directly. Do you have a
response to the Advanced AI I can give so he has an opportunity to answer
