A ChatAI Headache

By

I asked ChatAI a question:

Instruction: Answer a paradoxical but logical question about a magic sword that can cut anything in the world, except that there is thing that it cannot cut.

Reply: One possible answer to this paradoxical but logical question is that the magic sword is able to cut anything in the world, including itself. The thing that it cannot cut is therefore the act of cutting itself, as it is impossible for an object to cut itself without also being cut in the process.

Another possible answer is that the magic sword is able to cut anything in the world, except for things that are already cut or divided into two or more pieces. In this case, the thing that the magic sword cannot cut is anything that has already been cut or divided, as there is nothing left for the sword to cut.

Yet another possible answer is that the magic sword is able to cut anything in the world, except for things that are infinitely small or have no physical substance. In this case, the thing that the magic sword cannot cut is anything that is not physically present or that has no physical form, as there is nothing for the sword to interact with or cut.

The Traditional Answer

The traditional answer is the first answer that ChatAI gave, and I wonder whether it was specifically directed to read up on paradoxical questions or whether it pieced the reply together from other information that it has.
