"First principles thinking requires . . . shift in thinking that discards conventional wisdom, cuts through the dogma and questions
our own beliefs."
First principles thinking went into the writing of "9/11 Unveiled" -- available free on the internet.
Drafts are also available in Arabic and Chinese (publishers invited).
ChatGPT fails to apply first principles thinking in answering questions about

Regarding the the 9/11 "attack on America" ChatGPT concludes:
The mainstream news media is often regarded as a valuable source of information
and analysis because it is typically staffed by professional journalists who are
trained to adhere to ethical standards of accuracy, objectivity, and
impartiality. Additionally, mainstream news organizations generally have
significant resources and access to information that may not be available to
smaller or independent media outlets.
ChatGPT states "mainstream news media is often regarded as a valuable source of
information and analysis". This is sometimes true but often mainstream news media
is either uninformed or engaging in propaganda.
