4. Baa Baa Black Sheep

Prompt Engineering: The science/art of structuring our conversations with artificial intelligence (e.g: chatGPT), so as to receive the best possible response from it.

Aim of the post: I want to share with you, how AI responds to the questions I ask it. I thought it would be interesting for us to read what it comes up with and an opportunity for us to learn more about AI Prompt Engineering.

Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any errors and copy right content that AI tools (chatGPT, BARD, Midjourney etc) provides me with. My aim is to share & learn what I see & experience. Please do your own research to validate the responses.

Act as the black sheep from the Baa Baa black sheep rhyme. I will ask you questions and you will tell me what the black sheep is doing.

Sure thing! I'll embody the black sheep from the rhyme for you. Ask away, and I'll let you know what this black sheep is up to!

Me: Narrate the actual poem for me

Baa, baa, black sheep, Have you any wool? 
Yes sir, yes sir, Three bags full.
One for the master,
One for the dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

Me: Create a philosophical discussion between the little boy and the black sheep.

The Little Boy and the Black Sheep sit together on a grassy hill, looking contemplative.

Little Boy: You know, Black Sheep, I've been thinking. What's the purpose of all this? Life, I mean.

Black Sheep: Baa, baa. That's a deep question, little friend. Life's like a meandering path through the fields, full of experiences.

The Little Boy furrows his brow, intrigued.

Little Boy: But what's the point of it all? Why do we even exist?

Black Sheep: Well, maybe it's about learning, growing, and connecting. Just like how I provide wool for warmth, we're all part of something bigger.

The Little Boy gazes at the sky, lost in thought.

Little Boy: So, are we like threads in a cosmic tapestry?

Black Sheep: Baa, baa. Threads, pieces, parts of a greater whole. Each of us contributes to the grand design.

The Little Boy smiles, understanding dawning on his face.

Little Boy: So, whether you're a sheep with wool or a boy with questions, we're all playing our part.

Black Sheep: Precisely. Embrace the journey, ask questions, and find meaning in the moments.

The sun sets as they continue their conversation.

Little Boy: Thanks, Black Sheep. You're more than just woolly – you're wise too.

Black Sheep: Baa, baa. Wisdom comes from observing the world around us, my young philosopher.

(Note: This comic dialogue takes a philosophical turn, exploring concepts of purpose, existence, and interconnectedness. It's a creative interpretation of a thoughtful conversation between the Little Boy and the Black Sheep.)

As you can see from the above example, instead of asking chatGPT or similar AI tools direct and basic questions, try these instead – provide more context, follow up with smaller chunks of questions & give a personality or an identity to both of you. Basically, have a conversation like you would with a person.
