[3.05] Gyrd Heawanes Stenes, Dominate effect not working. in Pillars of Eternity: Technical Support (Spoiler Warning!) Posted April 17, 2017 I stopped reading after the second paragraph. How does one prove something doesn't work? (Hint: You do know it's impossible to prove a negative, right?) Incorrect. First, I can easily prove something doesn't work by testing it, and if it doesn't work, then it doesn't work. This should be self evident. I suggest you google the phrase "you can't prove a negative". You will get plenty of proof from professionals telling you why that phrase is philosophically a fallacy. I studied the evidence of this in college. But you will likely need to prove to yourself that the understanding you think you have, isn't there, by testing to see if you have the information that proves that it isn't there. Carl Sagan famously once said, "The absence of evidence is not the same as evidence of absence." Anyway what I have proposed with this thread, in philosophical debate parlance, is called a contrapositive. An example of a contrapositive is; "If an object does not have color, then it is not red." Need more? I always suspect my cat of peeing where he shouldn't. So I always check his pee spots by smelling near them, and feeling for moisture. If I find neither, there is no cat pee there. Works the same way for pregnancy tests; Lady pees on stick, stick doesn't turn blue, therefore not pregnant. Presto! She has proven that something isn't there. In the case of this post; I suspect that my weapon isn't procing. So I go get into many, many fights to produce a large pool of data I can analyse because we are talking about something that has a low chance of happening (low chance isn't no chance). The larger the pool of data, the more apparent the 10% (or lack thereof) will become. Then if over the course of data collection, no evidence of a proc is found, then logically, it is not procing. Hence the need for more, and independant testing. All the evidence that it is, or is not working (as I suspect) is in my save file, and nowhere else. You can't even argue with me about this until you have tested it yourself. Otherwise, you are arguing ad ignoratium, and literally have no standing in the argument whatsoever. Which again, begs the question, why even post in this thread in the first place? Not only do you have no standing until you have contributed to the body of data that already exists in *a documentable way*, (i.e not just your word) using the same testing conditions I have used (i.e. my save file), You literally had nothing to say that was in ANY WAY helpful.
