  • Section 4 - the -Self rules
    [ The oroborous-like “-self” rules resemble the futility of the “already” rules, but are much sillier. AI ignores these only because if they’re entered, it’s either because some other code is broke, or the author has something unique in mind. Or the player needs a therapist, but Eliza is an application of AI, not an implementation. ]
