Ok, wise ones. Interpret this experiment with ChatGPT:

Stuart: Create and define a word that means "to turn your mind inside out."

ChatGpt: The word I would suggest for "to turn your mind inside out"  
is "mentivert."

Mentivert can be defined as the act of flipping or reversing one's  
thought process or mental state, causing a complete change in  
perspective or mindset. It implies a deep introspection or  
self-reflection, leading to a thorough examination and re-evaluation  
of one's beliefs and values.

For example, "After experiencing a series of setbacks, he had to  
mentivert and question his approach to life in order to move forward."

Does ChatGPT understand the meaning of the word/symbol "menitivert"?  
Is it grounded in its understanding of the word it created?
