- Note 1: This character represents a very unique case for this Wiki, as usually a tier High 1-A represents characters who exist at the top of all respective hierarchies in their verse/franchise, with only a minor limitation or a comparable/superior being, with tier 0 representing similar characters, but who exist with no limitations/equal/superior beings. However, the nature of the Law of Identity's own self-stated limitation (in that the Law of Identity/Soga Keena does not know if there is something it/she cannot do), constitutes a special case where only assumption can place it/her in either tier, and thus it is safer that it/her rating be At least High 1-A, as to avoid misunderstandings and inform future conversations about related topics.
A basic explanation about the Law of Identity (Volume 12 Chapter 2):
That required thinking about the Law of Identity.
At face value, that was the undeniable principle that you were yourself.
The fact that you were the person who was thinking your thoughts could not be shaken and that had already been touched on when it came to proving the existence of the world.
But what if the world were someone’s dream?
That answer was also simple.
The world was created by the storyteller known as the Law of Identity.
Then what was the world? The world was fiction.
But at the same time, the world was an absolute truth from inside that fiction.
From the outside, it was fiction. From the inside, it was truth.
What if one tried viewing the world as fictional from the outside perspective?
How did the world come to be?
Rejecting all but the Law of Identity would leave yourself facing the one Law of Identity all alone. That would be one origin. It was possible the one having the dream lived in a world that was itself the dream of someone in another world that was again someone else’s dream, but even if that chain continued back infinitely, one specific origin could be found by facing that one Law of Identity.
That one would be the one who had taken in all existence and all life.
That one would be too lonely to call a god.
They would be a truly solitary individual.
Then what was the world?
All the miscellaneous things added to the Law of Identity would be the world.
Even if the world was fictional to the Law of Identity, that fiction could be life with a will of its own.
- The Law of Identity: The Law of Identity is the one who causes the recognition of "I am me," in beings. In other words, it is the undeniable principle that you are yourself. Without it, no being could recognize this.
- The top of all story hierarchies: The Law of Identity is the origin of all things. As such, for it all things are like a dream or fiction. It can freely manipulate this stories in any way it pleases, creating every story that is describable. It lies in the nature of The Law of Identity to be the sole top of all such story hierarchies, even infinite ones, as even if an entity denies all things that it can as just being fiction, the one thing no entity can deny is its own recognition of "I am me" aka, The Law of Identity.
