It's almost impossible not to ask, "Is that Schrödinger's cat?" (But, I refrain.)

Just as the "observer" in the problem cannot change the outcome of the initial roll by any action on his/her part, we, as "meta-observers", cannot "meta-change" any "meta-outcome" in the problem space, as all of that is inviolable from change caused by any event residing in internal or external (base or "meta") space. (The dice are rolled, and cannot be un-rolled.)
