Arnold Schwarzenegger, a former governor of California, professional bodybuilder, author, and star of blockbuster action films, advised unsuspecting patrons at Gold’s Gym in Venice, California. Schwarzenegger ultimately led them to a celebrity encounter.
The former “Terminator” star once embodied a lethal cybernetic assassin from a post-apocalyptic future ruled by an artificial intelligence named Skynet; this was a poetic circumstance for him.
Patrons of the fitness center were invited to utilize “Arnold Intelligence,” purportedly an artificial intelligence agent instructed on the subject matter of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s most recent publication, “Be Useful.”
They must sit in a large box equipped with a waveform monitor while listening to a “vocal approximation” of Arnold Schwarzenegger.
They were told, “Absolutely anything is off the question.”
Conversely, the box contained the authentic Arnold Schwarzenegger, who offered counsel derived not from an extensive lexicon but from the cerebral faculties of the actor himself.
Professional bodybuilding, motivation, and the formulation of a personal vision were among the topics that the gym-goers sought guidance on.
“Do you have any advice for navigating a marriage?” inquired one woman.
Schwarzenegger, a divorced father of four who disowned television journalist Maria Shriver in 2011, quipped, “I do not consider myself an authority on this subject.” “Be attentive not only to your own emotions but also to those of the other person.”
“If one were to say anything to a novice parent, what would it be?” A pregnant woman inquired.
