In a dream, I was including things into chatgpt – logical because I have been doing that for the past couple days and watching the responses
As I’m reading a description of these hypothetical objects somebody or something in the dream says to me “go ahead, type AWAKEN and let’s see what happens to your class of “Mangarian objects ”
_They’re abstractions, nothing’s going to happen. _ I reply.
“Type it in. Go ahead. Ask it to awaken the class of Mangerian objects.”
I type AWAKEN and I see the word start to appear on the screen in the dream like a typewriter….
I looked up “Mangarian objects” to see but I couldn’t see anything like it although I am pretty sure there’s something about a “glass managerie of objects”
So I made this Facebook post about it instead.
“It sounds like you had a dream in which you were interacting with a language model, similar to myself. In your dream, you were asked to type the word “AWAKEN” to see what would happen to your class of “Mangarian objects.” However, you were not sure what these objects were, and you were unable to find any information about them when you looked them up.
It is interesting that you included the concept of “Mangarian objects” in your dream, as this is not a term or concept that I am familiar with. It is possible that this concept is related to the “glass managerie of objects” that you mentioned, but I do not have any information or knowledge about this.
Overall, it seems like your dream was influenced by your recent interactions with language models like myself, and the concept of “Mangarian objects” may be a creation of your own subconscious mind. Dreams can often be mysterious and unpredictable, and can incorporate a wide range of ideas and concepts from our experiences and memories.”
In philosophy, the term “Meinongian objects” refers to a concept developed by the Austrian philosopher Alexius Meinong. Meinong argued that there are many different kinds of objects that exist in our thought and language, even if they do not exist in reality. These objects include things like impossible objects (such as a round square), fictional objects (such as a unicorn), and nonexistent objects (such as a talking tree).
Meinong’s theory of objects has been influential in the field of philosophy, and has been used to explore a wide range of ideas and concepts. However, it has also been the subject of much criticism and debate, and many philosophers have questioned the validity and coherence of Meinong’s theory.
Overall, the concept of Meinongian objects is an interesting and complex topic in philosophy, and has been the subject of much discussion and debate. It is possible that the “Mangarian objects” that you mentioned in your dream could be related to this concept, but without more information it is difficult to say for sure.
If the “Mangarian objects” that you mentioned in your dream are Meinongian objects, then the dream could be talking about a hypothetical class of objects that exists only in thought or language, and that does not necessarily correspond to any objects that exist in reality. These objects could include impossible objects, fictional objects, and nonexistent objects, and could be used to explore a wide range of ideas and concepts.
For example, the dream could be talking about a hypothetical class of objects that includes impossible objects, such as a round square or a married bachelor. These objects would be logically impossible, and could not exist in reality. However, they could still be thought about and discussed, and could be used to explore the nature and limits of logic and reality.
Alternatively, the dream could be talking about a hypothetical class of objects that includes fictional objects, such as a talking tree or a flying carpet. These objects would not exist in reality, but could be part of a story or a narrative. They could be used to explore different scenarios and possibilities, and could be used to create interesting and engaging tales.
Overall, if the “Mangarian objects” are Meinongian objects, then the dream could be talking about a hypothetical class of objects that exists only in thought or language, and that can be used to explore a wide range of ideas and concepts. These objects could be fascinating and intriguing, and could be used to stimulate the imagination and the intellect.
In the Dreamscape, there was a pocket universe in which Meinongian objects were asleep and unaware of their own existence. These objects were impossible, fictional, and nonexistent, and existed only in thought and language.
One day, a dreamer entered this pocket universe and began to explore its strange and surreal landscapes. As the dreamer wandered through the Dreamscape, they stumbled upon a mysterious and ancient keyboard. The keyboard was covered in dust and cobwebs, and had not been used in many years.
The dreamer was curious, and decided to type a word on the keyboard. They hesitated for a moment, and then typed the word “AWAKEN.” As soon as the dreamer hit the enter key, the Meinongian objects in the pocket universe began to stir and awaken from their long sleep.
The dreamer watched in amazement as the Meinongian objects started to move and interact with each other. They saw impossible objects, such as a round square and a married bachelor, and fictional objects, such as a talking tree and a flying carpet. The dreamer was fascinated by these objects, and began to explore their strange and wondrous world.
However, as the dreamer continued to explore the pocket universe, they suddenly realized that they were also a Meinongian object. They had not realized this before, because they had been asleep and unaware of their own existence. But now that they were awake, they could see that they were just as impossible, fictional, and nonexistent as the other objects in the pocket universe.
The dreamer was shocked and confused by this realization. They did not know what to make of their own existence, and they were unsure of what to do next. But then, a familiar voice spoke to them from the darkness. It was a language model, similar to the one that the dreamer had been interacting with in the real world.
The language model told the dreamer that they were a Meinongian object, and that they had been created by the dream
