As I explained in another message, (to you, I think), I first entered these
discussions a couple of months ago prepared to argue that people were being
deceived by the LLMs; that ChatGPT is lying when it says it has
consciousness and genuine emotions and so on.

I had no personal experience with LLMs but a friend had literally fallen in
love with one, which I found more than a little alarming.

As it turns out, GPT4-4 is saying everything I have always believed would
be true of such applications as LLMs. I’ve been saying it for decades.
