 Okay, then. I change the value of my Score, Charm, BAC, Activity,

No, it means that you tried to use the hole I found to something more
than that hole can do, namely setting your dimensions to a nonnumerical
value, whereas I did it the right way and won.

Just because I found a way to change dimensions in some respects

-No, the rule quite clearly states that my dimensions can be "any real number." So now they're all "any real number." I moved along the axes, as it were, to the point "any real number." Now where is that point?-

I think you just stepped over the line from weird to absurd. "any real number" could be interpreted to mean any number that is real, or it could mean the string value "any real number"; but in this case it's blindingly obvious what the meaning is.
