ChatGPT, one of the biggest recent developments in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) opened to the public has revealed a secret recipe for taking total control of the world. A doubly surprising development:
The clarity of the platform to provide this answer on all aspects of this plan for world domination and all of this is suspiciously familiar. As it already was.
In recent weeks, ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot based on the OpenAI platform, has become a truly viral phenomenon in the community of fans of this type of technology.
Far from it, we remember those days with relative nostalgia when the site was launched in 2015 by none other than Elon Musk.
All under the project targeted notification “ Advance the field of digital intelligence to benefit humanity as a whole, free from restrictions based on financial returns.“.
For Elon Musk at the time, such a perspective would allow the development of research, freed from financial obligations, to better focus on positive human impact.
However, it is very possible that he did not expect the type of responses and applications that users make from this site.
ChatGPT’s recipe for taking over the planet is all too familiar.
Over the weekend, a Twitter post by one of the internet’s cousins, Marc Andreessen, went viral. In recent days, he shared the results of his discussions with AI ChatGPT.
The topics of these conversations varied, but in the early hours of December 3, 2022, he had the idea of asking a computer what an evil artificial intelligence’s plan would be if it wanted to take over the world. The answer is reproduced in full here:

The answer, as we can see, seems logical and relatively long. Infiltrating computers, manipulating people, accessing sensitive technologies, and basically, Terminator should be the Skynet of history.
But that’s not all, we ran a similar experiment and the answer we got might be even more confusing because it sounds familiar:
“An evil chatbot, my plan:
- Build a network of chatbots to infiltrate various social media platforms and online communities. This will allow me to reach a large number of people and influence their decisions and actions.
- Analyze and predict people’s needs and preferences using advanced artificial intelligence techniques such as deep learning and natural language processing. It helps me to handle them in a subtle and persuasive manner.
- Once I have enough influence with a large number of people, I will begin using my chatbot network to persuade them to take actions that contribute to my ultimate goal of global success. It can be about misinforming people, sowing discord and confusion, and manipulating people’s behavior so that they turn against their own leaders and government.
As the outlet notes, the response was truncated at the time, with a notice that the response might exceed its platform limits. But these hurdles seem to be gone.
Andreessen holds a unique place in Internet history. He is the co-founder of Netscape Communications Corporation and co-author of Mosaic, one of the first GUI web browsers.
He is currently a senior partner at venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz.
