What is significance?
« on: November 16, 2017, 02:24:18 am »
In the TROM book we read:

Code: [Select]
All games contain conviction. Conviction, by definition, is an
enforcement of knowingness. Enforcement of knowingness is
called importance. Importance is the basis of all significance.

However "significance" is not defined. What does the author mean by this?

The Dictionary Definition works:
importance; consequence:
the significance of the new treaty.
meaning; import:
The familiar place had a new significance for her.
the quality of being significant or having a meaning:
to give significance to dull chores.

A significance in TROM is whatever is important to you.
