I guess I should clarify. I don't believe a piece of paper is
sentient. My statement is that we truly don't know if any of us are
sentient. For all I know every other player of B Nomic is a piece of
paper that has a human or artifical proxy acting on their behalf (with
or without their consent). Assuming we are in fact all human players,
our computers still serve as our representation in B Nomic, and
computers (at least most would argue) are non-sentient. Which is why
it is counter-intuitive to determine that I can't serve as a proxy for
Primo Corporation because the rules don't allow it.
