Dictums (or predictums) are entities theorized to exist by the Great Minds. Dictums are compared with daemons and are believed to be instructions (cf. a computer virus) or abstract, unobservable Luckamancy golems that are released into the Grand Cosmos by intuition. It is thought that they can affect the Numbers on Erf, and thus appear as Fate.
The fact that the dictums are described as "unobservable" means the theory is not falsifiable, and thus not subject to any rigorous scientific analysis. It is little better than superstition at this point.
