### A blog posting written by ChatGPT 3.5

For a long time I have been curious about what would result if I asked AI to write a blog post for me.  One day recently I signed in at https://chat.openai.com/ and was asked by ChatGPT 3.5,  "How can I help you today?"  Copied and pasted below is our conversation (copied from this link).  (I am disappointed that ChatGPT's respones did not, as my postings usually do, include a poem.)  Read -- and reflect!

I have a blog entitled "Intersections -- Poetry with Mathematics" and I would like Chat GPT to write a blog posting for me.

Title: Exploring the Symmetry of Numbers: A Mathematical Poetic Journey

Welcome back to "  Intersections -- Poetry with Mathematics"! Today, let's delve into the captivating world where numbers and poetry intertwine, creating harmonies of symmetry and rhythm. Join me on this whimsical voyage where mathematical concepts dance with lyrical verses, inviting you to see the beauty in both.

In the realm of mathematics, symmetry is a concept that resonates deeply. It speaks of balance, harmony, and order, echoing through the patterns that weave the fabric of our universe. From the elegant symmetry of a snowflake to the intricate symmetries found in mathematical equations, the allure of symmetry captivates mathematicians and poets alike.

Let us begin our poetic exploration with the graceful symmetry of numbers. Imagine the delicate balance of even and odd, where every number finds its place in the grand scheme of numerical symmetry. In this symphony of integers, each number plays its part, harmonizing with its counterparts to create a seamless melody.

Consider the beauty of prime numbers, those enigmatic entities that stand alone in their symmetry. Like solitary stars in the night sky, prime numbers defy division, existing as pure manifestations of mathematical elegance. In their solitude, they echo the simplicity and complexity of the universe, reminding us of the mysteries that lie beyond our comprehension.

But symmetry in numbers goes beyond mere divisibility and primes. Let us venture into the realm of Fibonacci, where numbers spiral gracefully in perfect harmony. In the Fibonacci sequence, each number is the sum of the two preceding ones, creating a mesmerizing spiral that appears throughout nature, from seashells to sunflowers. In this sequence, poetry and mathematics intertwine, crafting a narrative of growth and symmetry that transcends the boundaries of both disciplines.

As we contemplate the symmetries of numbers, let us not forget the infinite beauty of pi, that irrational constant that encircles the realm of circles with its infinite digits. Pi, like a never-ending poem, unfurls its digits in an endless dance of symmetry, captivating mathematicians and poets with its infinite complexity.

In the intersection of mathematics and poetry, we find a tapestry of symmetry woven with words and numbers. Each line of verse, each mathematical theorem, contributes to the rich tapestry of human expression, inviting us to contemplate the beauty of symmetry in all its forms.

So, dear readers, as we conclude our journey through the symmetries of numbers, let us carry with us the poetry of mathematics and the mathematics of poetry. For in this intersection lies a universe of infinite possibility, where symmetry reigns supreme, and beauty knows no bounds.

Until next time, may your equations be elegant and your verses be lyrical. Keep exploring the intersections, where poetry meets mathematics, and let the symphony of symmetry guide your journey.

Thank you for joining me on this poetic mathematical adventure. Stay tuned for more musings from "Intersections -- Poetry with Mathematics."
