Er...  Sorry, but there's nothing here, this was an accidental misposted-

Ah, screw it.





Suddenly, from the Blank, SOMETHING apparently spontaneously springs into existence.  The SOMETHING is glorious, indeed.  However, vaguely defined as it is, you can not seem to obtain any more information from it.  Indeed, the SOMETHING is defined only by existing information surrounding it;  and that information is currently very sparse.

Oh.  And then there's YOU.  YOU are even more vaguely defined.  By virtue of your having given a command, you exist, can think, and can express concepts.  That, however, is all.

You think, therefore you are.  Self-perpetuating logic, but valid here, nonetheless.  Unfortunately, this has not changed your position;  you were already defined as existing and being capable of thought;  this remains as it was.

YOU exist.  You can think.  You can express concepts.

SOMETHING exists.

YOU are now the relatively anthromorphised incarnation of LOGIC.

You are the system behind all logical processes in existence, have the capacity to think, and can express concepts in a hereto undefined manner.

Additionally, you can define undefined parts of reality, GROUNDING them.

The SOMETHING is indeed a thing.  What it is exactly, however, is as of yet undefined.

Rationalize SOMETHING as definable by virtue of definition. Or, in other words, SOMETHING is what we say it is because we created SOMETHING to be just that.

Define it as CHAOS.

The SOMETHING is of direct interest to YOU.  It may or may not be in direct conflict with you;  the ambiguity unsettles you somewhat.

It is the representation of both CHAOS and ORDER.  How it manages this is undefined.  Whether it is sentient or not is undefined.

YOU can define undefined aspects of reality.  Therefore, YOU can define undefined aspects of SOMETHING with absolute authority.

(Hey, anything goes.  This thread was an accident anyway;  you can define what you wish as whatever you wish, so long as it's undefined.  That's your power.)
