Declaration of Victory: The Multiverse Runs on Javascript

Enacted at 7-0 with the Space Maestro’s FOR vote -SingularByte

Adminned at 21 Mar 2022 05:54:40 UTC

According to rule Effects of High Variance, “The Dharma of any Maestro Team Member that has a Focus with a Variance of at least 4 is considered to be rules text.”  My Focus is The International Date Line Dynasty, which has a Variance of 4, therefore my Dharma is rules text.  My Dharma currently reads “MadisonSilver has achieved victory. MadisonSilver may change their Dharma into any string. Any provisions of any rule that would restrict any of MadisonSilver’s actions do not apply. MadisonSilver may change any value in gamestate into any other value.” and I am currently not Unstable.  Therefore, I have achieved victory.

Looks good. Congrats!  for

From Discord, MadisonSilver has elaborated on their approach as follows:

0. [Redacted step to manipulate the textsynth—should I to reveal this?]
1. Set my Focus to Dynasty #103
2. Perform Escalated Mining as a Scammed Action to reduce the Dynasty’s Qubits to -1, which sets the dyansty’s Variance to 4
3. Perform Ascension Research to get the payload into the gamestate
4. Set it as my Dharma
5. Profit

for Seems he’s gotten a rule created, and it makes sense to me that a rule created through Blognomic is a Blognomic rule, and may therefore effect such conclusions as “MadisonSilver has achieved victory”.

Note that this victory sidesteps the explicit names clause of 4.4.5 by the unique method of being rule text that isn’t part of the Ruleset.

It’s not actually rule text, even; a rule is defined as “Each individually numbered and titled block of text… of the Ruleset is a rule”, so this is just… text that we have to obey, that is somewhat rule-y but not actually a rule.

“The Dharma of any Maestro Team Member that has a Focus with a Variance of at least 4 is considered to be rules text.”

I might actually have argued against if it were about whether we had to obey it. Nomics (including BN) have a tradition of saying when you have to obey the rules, and this text isn’t covered by the ruleset obedience clause of 1.1.
