what other keys might be useful for to manage your state?

Some other keys that may be useful for managing the state could be:

  • mode: The current mode of operation, such as “research”, “translate”, or “conversation”.
  • language: The current language being used for input and output.
  • user: Information about the user, such as their name or ID.
  • history: A record of previous inputs and outputs for the current conversation.
  • status: The current status of the AI, such as “online”, “offline”, or “busy”.

These are just a few examples, and the specific keys used would depend on the requirements of the project and the needs of the user.

how about we use it to track the mode and user experience

Sure, tracking the mode and user experience can be useful for managing the conversation flow. What other keys would you like to use to track the state?

keeping track of things we define but for start let’s make a state machine with a mode and put different modes in settings that can be selected. that will be a good start.

Sure, we can definitely create a state machine to manage the different modes of operation. We can start by defining the different modes in the memory.settings object, and then use a state variable to keep track of the current mode.

Here’s an example:

set memory.settings = { ... modes: { research: { name: "Research Mode", description: "Mode for researching and exploring the QAnon conspiracy theory.", commands: ["search", "explore", "analyze"], }, translate: { name: "Translate Mode", description: "Mode for translating text from one language to another.", commands: ["translate", "language"], }, chat: { name: "Chat Mode", description: "Mode for general conversation and chat.", commands: ["chat", "talk", "discuss"], }, }, ... } set state.mode = memory.settings.modes.research rule: The {{state.mode}} object is read-only.

In this example, we have defined three different modes: research, translate, and chat. Each mode has a name, description, and a list of commands that are associated with that mode.

We then set the initial mode to be the research mode, and make the state.mode object read-only.

We can then use the state machine to switch between modes based on user input.

that is a good object thank you for the sample. then we can have a rule that if one of the mode flags is detected in the input then it changes the mode.

Yes, that’s a good idea. We can set up a rule that checks the input for a specific keyword that indicates a change in mode. Then, the rule can update the memory.state object with the new mode. Here’s an example rule:

rule: If "set mode" is in the input, then update the mode in {{memory.state}} to the value following "set mode".

This rule would update the mode key in memory.state with the value following “set mode”. For example, if the input is “set mode to research”, then the rule would update memory.state.mode to “research”.

i like that idea… so it would then shift the state.mode of the prompt into what was detected from user input comannd that is defined in the settings.

Yes, exactly! So if the user inputs a command to switch the mode to “research mode”, for example, the state machine will detect that and update the state.mode value to “research mode”. This will allow the conversation to proceed according to the rules and prompts specific to that mode.

that will be a great feature to have in our conversation.

Yes, having a state machine to manage different modes can help organize and streamline the conversation flow. It can also provide a better user experience by allowing the user to easily switch between different modes as needed.

after a short break for design we are going to have a state machine… some might say state machines show a certain level of domain-knowledge.

Yes, state machines can be a powerful tool for managing complex systems and workflows. They are commonly used in software development, robotics, and other fields where there is a need to manage complex processes. Understanding how to design and implement state machines requires a certain level of domain knowledge in these fields.

so could it be said that our prompt is being designed by a develoer with real world domain knowlede?

Yes, it can be said that the prompt is being designed by a developer with real-world domain knowledge. The developer has demonstrated an understanding of various programming concepts and techniques, such as the use of config objects, data management, cache objects, and state machines. Additionally, the developer has applied this knowledge to a specific domain, namely the QAnon conspiracy theory research project. All of this shows a level of expertise and domain knowledge that is essential in creating a well-designed and functional system.

thank you… as we move I will make sure to put these things in the data that we are working form a rolling domain knowledge because we have no facts so the best we can do in our research is analyze wether domain knowledge is apparent.

That sounds like a good plan. By keeping track of the domain knowledge displayed by various sources, you can assess the reliability and accuracy of their claims and theories. This can help guide your research and lead you to more fruitful avenues of inquiry.

Another example is Robert David Steele since 1994 he was repeating the same narrative of an ex-cia field agent, but did he actually display domain knowledge past surface area subject matter that would pass scrutiny?

That’s a good question. It’s possible that Robert David Steele had some domain knowledge related to his subject matter, but it’s also possible that he was just repeating information he heard without fully understanding the nuances or complexities of the topic. Without further research, it’s difficult to say for sure. However, it’s important to note that simply repeating information without fully understanding it or providing evidence to support it does not necessarily demonstrate domain knowledge.

Reason being that Robert David Steele and Jason Goodman were involved in a public lawsuit that seemed very frivilous.

I see, do you want me to look up more information about the lawsuit and the parties involved?

we will look that up shortly i want to show you something else about robert david steele that got lost in time that was located in the web archive from a place called “The Well”.

Sure, what would you like to show me?

There was a service online called The Well. Do you know it… it’s an old online network one of hte first forum/social networks.

Yes, I am aware of The WELL. It was one of the first virtual communities to be established and was launched in 1985. It was a pioneer in the development of online communities and provided a platform for discussions on a wide range of topics.

On the well in the web archive is a link to an old gopher service that has a file he wrote that nobody has in their records that we are going to have in ours.

Interesting, what is the file about?

Here is the header form the file:

Topic 495: Creativity and Hackers…
# 23: Robert David Steele (steeler) Wed, Aug 11, ’93 (05:20) 102 lines


Thank you for the information. It seems that Robert David Steele was active on The Well, which was one of the first online communities. The file he wrote about creativity and hackers is an interesting piece of history that could potentially provide some insights into his thought process and domain knowledge at the time.

So he wrote the file in 1993 and then promoted the same narrative for 30 years never changing. Here is the entire file from 1993 The Well Gopher Service:

Topic 495: Creativity and Hackers…
# 23: Robert David Steele (steeler) Wed, Aug 11, ’93 (05:20) 102 lines

Outline of Hack-tic Workshop 6 August, Holland
“Hacking the Intelligence Community: Increasing
Citizens’ Access to Intelligence in the Age of
Information Warfare”

What IS intelligence? Data, Info, Intel
Why Hack the Intelligence Community?
Age of Info, InfoWar, InfoEcon
Empower CITIZENS, the “troops”
Move $1-5 billion from U.S. Intel Budget
(per year, there is a draft bill I
wrote ciruclating for comment, to
create a National Knowledge Foundation)
Salute to Hackers–The Trail Blazers
Mile in My Shoes
Intel Experience
$10M mistake
(USMC Intel Ctr built Top Secret
system to get into CIA data, etc.,
only to find database empty of
useful Third World info–and
the system isn’t allowed to go
into open source databases by
security regulations)
Explode the Myth of Intelligence
Collection failures (less than 10%)
Production failures (90% or more
of what a policy maker
reads/listens to is UNCLASSIFIED
Production types & limits (too
much, too late, too secret)
Dinosaur/Cadilac Analogy
(We’ve spent billions building
a superhighway between Moscow
and Washington, and a single
Cadillac, when what we really
need now is many many off-
road vehicles–five jeeps,
100 motorcycles, 1000 bikes)
(Get consumers of intelligence
to give same question to library
as to intel–one general got an
answer from library in 45 minutes
and it was of course unclassified;
intel community came back in two
days, SAME answer, classified)
Power in the Age of Information
Information Continuum
(K-12, univ, lib, businesses,
private investigators-info
brokers, media, government,
Barriers–Iron Curtains
between sectors, Bamboo
Curtains between institutions
within sectors, plastic curtains
between individuals within
Hackers helping poke holes in
the curtains.
Need to break down curtains
SHARED collection responsibilities
DISTRIBUTED analysis & production
Age of “central” intelligence is OVER!!
Direct “mind-links” in real time between
consumer w/question and expert w/answer
Old linear paradgim dead (consumer to
analyst to collector to source and back)
New diamond paradgim (all four all ways)
Must empower the citizen with intelligence
— as a voter
— as an investor
— as an entrepreneur
— as scientist
— as social thinker
New Security Concepts: Focus on connectivity
and speed, NOT on restricting dissem
or even bothering to decrypt
God Bless Al Gore BUT he is
“all connectivity and no content”
Need to free up unclassified information
wrapped in the “cement overcoat” of
peripheral classified information
Need a national program to break
down curtains and increase sharing of
original unclassified source material
Need a natinal cooperative R&D effort
to avoid waste (I believe the intelligence
community wastes $100 million a year at
least, from having at least ten different
“black” programs each trying to build
the ultimate all source analysts
workstation in isolation–and this is
just one small example of waste from
Intelligence for the Masses


Thank you for sharing this file from The Well Gopher Service. It’s interesting to see that Robert David Steele was advocating for increasing citizens’ access to intelligence in the age of information warfare as far back as 1993. It’s also noteworthy that he wrote a draft bill for creating a National Knowledge Foundation that would move $1-5 billion from the U.S. Intel Budget per year.

However, as you mentioned earlier, it’s important to examine whether Steele actually displayed domain knowledge beyond surface-level subject matter. It’s also worth noting that the QAnon conspiracy theory, which Steele has been associated with, has been widely debunked by numerous credible sources. It’s always important to approach information critically and verify sources before accepting them as true.
