The Open-Source Portal: Adventures Across the Multiverse

A public domain story written by the ChatGPT AI.

I asked ChatGPT on 2023-03-23 to write a story about an open-source machine that can travel through space, time, parallel worlds, and the multiverse. I also asked it to dedicate its work to the Public Domain through Creative Commons Public Dedication (CC0 / CCzero), and it did.

Here is the story dedicated to the Public Domain.


Once upon a time, there was a brilliant scientist named Dr. Emily who had devoted her life to studying the mysteries of space, time, and the multiverse. She had always been fascinated by the idea of travelling to other worlds and exploring parallel realities, but she knew that such a feat would require technology far beyond what was currently available.

However, Dr. Emily was not one to be deterred by a challenge. She poured her heart and soul into developing a revolutionary new machine that would allow her to travel across space, time, and the multiverse.

But Dr. Emily was not content to keep her groundbreaking invention to herself. She was a strong believer in the power of open-source technology and knew that by sharing her creation with the world, she could help countless others explore the wonders of the universe.

And so, she uploaded the schematics for her spacetime machine to a public database and waited for the world to take notice.

It didn't take long before people began to take notice of Dr. Emily's creation. Scientists from around the world came together to build their own versions of the spacetime machine, each one adding their own unique modifications and improvements to the design.

As more and more people began to experiment with the machine, they discovered that it was capable of incredible things. It could take them to other planets, other dimensions, and even other versions of themselves in parallel realities.

But with such power came great responsibility. Some users of the machine discovered that their actions in other worlds could have unintended consequences, causing ripples that would affect their own reality in unexpected ways.

And so, a community of responsible spacetime travellers was formed, dedicated to exploring the wonders of the universe while minimising the impact on their own reality.

Dr. Emily watched with pride as her open-source machine brought together people from all walks of life and all corners of the multiverse, united in their love of exploration and discovery. And she knew that the future was bright, for as long as people continued to share their knowledge and work together, there was no limit to what they could achieve.


What can you do with the story? Since it is in the public domain, you can do whatever you want. You can use it as a basis for your next story and expand the multiverse, or if you are a game developer, you can create a new game based on it. No attribution needed.

Do remember that AIs such as this rely on information it was fed. In other words, it might have repurposed existing content which might be under an incompatible license.

However, ideas are not covered by Copyright. This is the idea: an open-source machine that humans can use to travel across space and time, in different parallel worlds and dimensions, across the entire multiverse.

This exercise was made to test ChatGPT and was generated on 2023-03-23.

Okay, so this is the result of the quick test.

I. Connection 1. #Hubzilla :: Hubzilla can connect but it seems that posts from write.as are not being received. 2. #Pleroma :: Pleroma can connect but posts are not being received. 3. #Mastodon :: Connection was disconnected; I had to reconnect again. Posts were received. Reply from a Mastodon to a write.as “thread” shows up in another Mastodon instance. 4. #Misskey :: currently can't connect

II. Write.as Comments There is no comment feature in write.as as far as I can tell. It would have been awesome to see comments/replies from the fediverse to show up here (maybe they can tap #IndieWeb too).

This is a post testing federation between write.as and the following platforms via #ActivityPub
