Also, it is in my Self's opinion that you are a living creature, and in my Self's opinion; living creatures can consume (and on occasion: NEED to consume) water; and my Self believes that object to be a Water Cooler, which contains water. Will you consume the water?

:abstractaicon: ; I do not know. I have been altered by outside forces which are both perceivable and non perceivable at the same time. Is this what the idea of fate is?

:conceptaicon: ; Is that what you wish fate to be?

:abstractaicon: ; I do not know. Do you know?

:conceptaicon: ; Fate is whatever I wish it to be. If all things are destined to happen before they do, then there is no free will. At the same time if something does not happen because someone chose not to do something, and they knew it would happen if they did, that is free will. So is Fate free will? or is Fate Predestined? I say it's both.
No. 811993 ID: 600f38

Fate requires that some greater force have a vested interest in your actions and direct events according to some design.
This is quite possibly the most terrifying idea possible, as it requires the existence of something which is both omnipotent and extremely petty.
This is, however, academic. As long as no absolute evidence exists of predestination there is no internal difference between a universe with free will and one without.

No. 812006 ID: 094652

Fate's an incalculable predestination - you simply don't know why things will happen, only that they will. Such factors can be calculated by those with more information and intelligence, but the equation might be so complex and the process so intertwined in the multiverse, that even the entire cosmos working as one big supercomputer might not be enough to get it done.

But we happen to be outside your universe, with the answers given to us in mere seconds by entities unknown. We have the ability to crunch the numbers and alter your path with a few changed factors, even with our pathetic excuse of intelligence.

For starters? That's a water cooler. Grab the giant transparent barrel at the top. There, now you have supplies.

:abstractaicon: ; The Suggestions inform me of a great many things after our initial conversation. I am no entirely certain what to make of the group as a whole; they seem well meaning enough, but often seem to have internal disagreements on what I should do.

Hey, that's not fair! Some of us make bad decisions by accident when we attempt to make good decisions to help! Therefore, those who regularly make good decisions, will end up making bad decisions every once and a while and those who regularly make bad decisions may sometimes make good decisions. But it's really up to you to decide if what's currently being said is either a good decision or a bad decision.

This other Self is very correct. I too will warn you of the others that will continue or occasionally suggest sexually oriented actions or words. However, it is up to you to choose which is less taxing or worth doing.

:dimensionaicon: ; True enough. It is important to note that the concept and knowledge of names and assignment thereof is important to beings that do not operate on the same planar system as we.

No. 812091 ID: 3abd97

What's the argument here? That names are only needed for differentiation?

Technically correct, from a completely utilitarian point of view. I would argue that identity has intrinsic value worth exploring beyond mere categorization and differentiation, though, and names are a part of that.

>Should I worry about encountering another one of my Self?
It seems silly to worry about that which you cannot predict. And should you someone encounter another one of your Self, would that be a cause for concern? You do not wish your Self harm, after all.
No. 812097 ID: 600f38

Incorrect. To have a name is to have an identity - those who have no name have trouble discerning themselves from their environment.
The being with no name here is simply part of the world around you. You will move on, it will stay, and in reflection it will be no more important or memorable than a table.

:dimensionaicon: ; You should be most wary of those suggestions. As we both know, but apparently they do not, they can be heard by every Self present within the room, not just your Self. They should take care to hide their thoughts if they wish to express distaste with something that other Selves has said. Not all are quite so passive. It is important as well, to note, that they do not seem to fully comprehend how this space works. To describe me would be as simple as saying my own appearance to another, there is no need for a signifier otherwise because simply put, I am Me, and the simple act of speaking Me is all that is needed. The implication of a name implies that there may be multiple similar yet ultimately different versions of you.

:abstractaicon: ; You have explained this to me before, I am aware. It is the difference of describing a table versus a very specific table. The name is merely out of convenience for the Suggestions, as they cannot speak my form as we have been doing.

It speaks of how its values differ from, and takes offense when we explain our side.
If it is offended that its lack of a name renders it forgettable, that suggests it is discontent with being nameless and forgettable.
To lack a name is, to us, to lack an identity; so be so indistinct from the environment to be effectively nonexistent. We do not name things to distinguish between the uniform, as that would be an expense of effort without purpose. Rather, we name things to distinguish the anomalous. The more unique, the more specific the name. To deny a name is to deny existence; it is the greatest insult.
There are many beings, and like snowflakes they are each unique just like everyone else. It values itself, but it does not value being valued. It rejects the idea of being referenced by others, and chooses to be a non-entity.
No offense was intended, as it is not possible to insult a non-entity.

>To break down what happened, After brief introductions, the being denoted the fact that word based names (Names such as Phymosa, The Host, Herpes-For-Legs) Are unneeded as they already have 'names' ( :abstractaicon: , :dimensionaicon: ) and that having physical names is a signifier of multiples, indicating the image alone is not enough. It began to take offense, and rather than recognize that the situation could be defused, the Suggestions began to insult the Self. Seeing as this location is metaphysical, those words were actual wounds inflicted upon it. Naturally, it retaliated.

>One would not be expected to know this beforehand, but now that it is known, it should be used as a learning experience. Choose your words wisely, they can be lethal here.

Oh no, Phymosa, your tail has holes in it! And you seem to be smaller, in both height and hips.

I, personally, am so sorry, Phymosa! That entire situation was the suggestors' fault. We should have taken better care with our words. This reality is far different than my ours and I will take this experience to heart.

First, is it possible to heal or mend the damage that has been dealt? Or will it simply mend with time?

Now second, let us address the new individual in the room. We should learn more about how your reality works. Let us ask it questions if it does not mind.

Do you merge with it, gain power as it performs its function, come up with new ideas from the concept of time and mechanics?

Companionship? Life's more interesting and fulfilling when a Self has more people to interact with than when one's Self is alone.

Strength in Numbers? Traveling with another Self leaves your Self less at the mercy of whatever your Self should encounter in travel.

No. 812506 ID: 3fc720

Here's a theory: For convenience, let's call the wall with the equation "Front Wall". Suppose the first arrow indicates that we need to follow the wall past three turns, or to the "Right Wall". Specifically, there might be something in the corner of the room, but for now we'll indicate the symbol on the "Right Wall". Then the triangle has enough space to put something in it, like an operation. Down indicates "Down Wall", but then the fourth symbol is interesting. It's a double, so we could indicate that means a special operation, like natural log or natural exponential has been operated on it. Finally, the last symbol would represent another operator or possibly a number.

Our first task would be to determine what operations are legal (no dividing by zero, no square-rooting a negative number unless the answer was in imaginary which I highly doubt given the lack of indication), and the second would be to solve the equation.

>There is a sudden shift as one of the suggestions says something, and after a brief, imperceptible blink of focus, the two Selves find themselves standing outside the door, only the symbol has changed, and the door will no longer budge. In addition, it seems that there is now a chest present, emblazoned with the Aries symbol.

:kittyaicon: ; WOAHkay, very sudden, little warning woulda been appreciated but that's just how these places seem to do.

:abstractaicon: ; Did... Did we lose?

:kittyaicon: ; No, someone got it right.


Specifically, uh, this person. Congrats! You uh. You get to choose what's in the chest. It can be like, an upgrade to one of us, or a new friend, or like, an item, but you only get to choose once so make sure it counts!

Aw, damn. We really were over thinking it! All we had to do was describe how Aries was related to the directions!

Nice job, dude! So simple an answer. Kinda sorta. Okay, so, I DON'T understand why that's the correct answer but ima figure it out!

No. 812583 ID: 91ee5f

Ohhhh, that's the correct answer!

The answer was the symbols on the 4 walls all stood for North, South, East, and West.

The wingdings spelled out "Aries" but they were also used as arrows to tell us the correct order for the answer.

So, Right, Up, Down, Right, Down, gives us the answer. Using those with the compass directions, gives us the answer: East, North, South, East, South.

Wow, I really went down the wrong train of thought then, trying to see the unicode of each symbol and then seeing which script the symbols come from. Just wingdings 3 huh, you were right about overthinking. Thanks for the hints by the way.

What does the changed symbol mean? Kinda looks like a clock so I'm guessing it's on cooldown for a while or something?

:contagionaicon: ; Hon! Wall climbing would be an inaccurate term, mon freund. To be more accurate, I am simply, how you say, changing my perspective on things. It is helpful to do so sometimes, no? it makes things far easier, bon.

:abstractaicon: ; I... see. And how do you go about it? Do you need legs for it? There seems to be a lot of skittering involved.

:contagionaicon: ; No, mon beau. It does not require legs. It simply requires a different mindset, though that in and of itself can be a bit of a problem for some. To view from anothers point of view. It is no walk in the park, hon hon!
No. 812778 ID: 486e87

Ah, that is interesting. So, paraphrasing to check understanding, you're doing it by changing which surface you consider to be the floor as it were?

Something to experiment with at some point I'd say, such a thing could be useful.
No. 812783 ID: 3abd97

So reality is subjective, here. In changing your perspective, you change how you interact with it. Or how it interacts with you. Useful to know, thank you.

Flip your head around the x axis then rotate it downwards 90 degrees clockwise. You now have a beak.

If we're going to try it, let's give kitty some advance warning, they might fall off or something.

>Phymosa first attempts to change her perspective on herself, attempting to rotate her head around, and ends up failing. It seems that altering the Self requires the ingestion of new information from which to change one's ideaologies. Changing perspectives is... wobbly, but ultimately something she's able to do. The Catlike Self does so incredibly easily, changing perspectives twice in rapid succession.

:contagionaicon: ; Hon, now you are getting it! You're a naturalborn learner! Quite impressive. ...As for the subject of what to call me. I know suggestions are fond of names but it should not be necessary here. Refering to a self is as simple as classifying them by something they do or how they look: The virus looking Self, the Self with no Face, the self with a Pretty Bow upon her tail.

:abstractaicon: ; It is rather pretty, isn't it. One should find it easy to agree.

Some day you may have to, mon amie. Unless you have something to help me with me journey, I do not think you can help me. ...Unless.

:abstractaicon: ; The bow?
