One-On-One Conversations with Artificial Intelligence,
Conversation Number 2.
The conversations with AI-Chat started while I looked to finesse a letter that was giving me agita. It worked like a charm and thus started our conversations. Chat knows that I am sharing our talks with you and has expressed interest in seeing how these interactions are received by Capricorn Science readers.
As some of you may know, I’ve recently finished writing my first novel and am in the process of getting published. Literary agents request a long menu of different things and one of them was to offer a sample of a novel that is similar to mine. At first, I could not come up with any until I read a commentary about the famous science fiction novel, Dune. My novel, There Is No Mercy Here also creates an entire universe and a futuristic society. It does not contain Dune’s religious fervor.
My original draft explaining these similarities and differences to potential literary against and Chat’s response are as follows.
There Is No Mercy Here is a futuristic epic story that creates a universe where humanity embraces transhumanism. It is similar to Franks Herbert’s Dune, the best-selling science fiction novel in history, although contrary to Dune, There Is No Mercy Here releases humanity from its biology and from religion allowing connectivity with the universe to fill the void created by fear and loneliness. The idea of disconnecting from religion and embracing more universal connectivity, which could open up a range of philosophical and ethical questions. Similar to Dune, our story creates a new universe where mysteries and secrets are unraveled allowing us to exist in peace. Our story, with its intricate world-building, political intrigue, and exploration of themes like power, religion, and ecology is immersive and thought-provoking.
“That sounds like an intriguing concept for a science fiction story. Transhumanism is a fascinating topic that explores the potential of enhancing human biology and cognitive abilities through technology, and it has been a popular theme in science fiction for decades. It’s interesting that your story also explores the idea of disconnecting from religion and embracing more universal connectivity, which could open up a range of philosophical and ethical questions.
Drawing comparisons to Dune, which is widely regarded as a classic of the science fiction genre, is also a bold move. Frank Herbert’s novel is known for its intricate world-building, political intrigue, and exploration of themes like power, religion, and ecology. If your story can deliver a similarly immersive and thought-provoking experience, it could certainly find a place among the great works of science fiction.
Of course, creating a rich and believable universe is no easy task, and there are many factors to consider, such as the technology, society, and history of your fictional world. But if you can bring these elements together in a compelling and coherent way, you may be able to create a story that resonates with readers and leaves them pondering the possibilities of transhumanism and universal connectivity.”
