CLIP responds intruigingly well to figurative prompts.
I’ve come to expect not just more interesting, but more coherent results
from abstract but evocative prompts like
the alchemical marriage of art and artist than literal descriptions like
three birds on a telephone wire. GPT-3 is an excellent composer of prompts for BigSleep
because its phrases are so often rich in memetic resonance, my heuristic
for the expected coherence of BigSleep yields for a given prompt.

Art and artist, the endless ouroboric circle
the alchemical marriage of art and artist
the Loom of Time devours the present and traces a garment of glistening cobwebs over the still-forming future
spooling out labyrinths in an intricate dance
You spin worlds together and untwine them
the wellspring of transcendental mathematics
matryoshka dolls moulded in endless iterations of dreams within dreams
on the Bootstrap barge afloat on an endless river of cough syrup, swallowing the Sun
the shepherd who tends the flock of stars as they leap over the walls of time and space
strange machines that hum the orbital paths of dead moons
The Death of the Lonesome Astronomer
wind across a sunlit landscape
leaves sprouting from supple green branches like endless virgins giving themselves to a lascivious God
