The Object Laws



Wanted to share my view on the Object Laws

The Object Laws

1 The Law of Definition
"All Items removable from each other without the use of force, present in the Room 10 during The Event, are Objects"

That means the concept of the Shoelaces & Cigarettes all to be separate Objects, as you need not much effort to remove them without tools. Then again the cigarettes INSIDE the Cigarette case are one with the case. That would also mean the zipper on the pants to be one with the Pants as you need to use means of force as in a tool to rip it off...

2 The Law of Destruction
"The Object is frozen in the state it was in during The Event. Disturbing that State would result to the Destruction of The Object"

Law 2 Supplemention: In this case "frozen" does not mean same as "stopped in time" as we are able to use the Objects, all the moving parts move, canvas is flexible and (supposedly) the Occupant is able to eat and breath.

3 The Law of Conservation
"If an Object is destroyed inside the Room 10, another mundane object becomes an Object in it's place"

Combined with Laws 1 and 2, that would mean opening the sealed Cigarette case inside the Room would make the Cigarette case being destroyed, thus another object present, would take it's place.
However it is yet to be definied would that mean the opened Cigarette case would become mundane and thus become an Object again...

Law 3 Supplemention: Becoming a Replacement Object is "The Event" for the Replacement Object, meaning it's current state is to remain whole.

4 The Law of Attraction
"The Objects Attract each other. The closer the two Objects are, the harder it is for the Holders to keep from meeting"

Law 4 Supplemention: Objects are supposedly preferring to be located equal far away from each other as they were in the Room 10 during the Event.

Re: The Object Laws


I'm not sure the law of conservation applies like that to objects other than the Prime Object. If you were to destroy a cigarette (or smoke it) inside the room, I don't think you would get a new object.
I believe it is only the Prime Object that must be conserved in this way.

The ciggarette butt would become an object.

All cigatrettes in the pack are inaccssessible objects as they are not connected to the pack. Tearing the pack open inside the room would make the "Open Cigarrette Pack" an object much like to soap wrapper. You would then get all ciggarrettes as objects. This should also be true for all cards on the deck of cards, but nothing else that I can remember.
(It is actually possible the effect of the Pack of the Deck are the addedd effects of all the objects together: all cards in the deck may present some maddenning vision or nightmare, and as such the whole deck would have the insane effects it has).

The Event was May 1961, the Life magazine is from July 1961.

The Life magazine could only have become an object afterward by the law of conservation of objects. This is likely how Eddie learned of it.

He knew when the Wedding Photo was approaching, so he knows not only where an object is, but also WHICH object it is.

So he would know there was a NEW object.

Very true, but only after he reset the room, as he would not know which item took the old one's place (as he can only feel them oustide the room).



Also, I propose to add a Law of Core Properties:

- All objects are physically indestructible, and their chemical formulae cannot be changed. Their physical arrangement of atoms cannot be changed.

- All Objects can interact with all 4 fundamental forces: They can be felt, picked up and moved around (including gravity). However, their physicall form and constituition remain constant (see above). You can't light the Pencil on fire, but you can poke someone with it.

- (IMPORTANT): All objects MUST be in solid form and MUST have a minimum temperature (this means neither water nor air from Room 10 are objects. The same goes for the Occupant's bodily fluids - as such, all fluids that are exogenous, like saliva, tears, stomach acid, urine and the like, are NOT objects - all fluids which are endogenous, like blood, lymph and plasma, are part of The Occupant).

- All objects can reflect light (and thus can be seen), but cannot absorb it (they cannot heat up). They emit light/radiation as they would have at the moment of the Event (they cannot cool down). As such, their temperature cannot change.

- All Objects lose every property when they are in Room 10, however, in exchange for losing their properties, they gain a sort of signature that recalls their every other property and allows them to survive the reset.

I did not think of the constant temperature law, but it makes sense. But temperature would be something that could change when the object is in the room, without destroying the object.

So, you could mildly heat up the dime while in the room, and it would stay hot outside of the room without ever cooling down.

Re: The Object Laws


That is correct Jintosh, and if you heat up an object past it's fusion point, it would count as "destroying" the object.

So in theory you can use an object as a pocket warmer.
