Topic pretty much says it all. Where I am:

Spoiler: show
I'm in a dream by the side of the tracks, have been told I've done the right thing nine times and doing the wrong thing is impossible now.


I've tried

Spoiler: show
do the wrong thing


but it doesn't work.

I've also tried

Spoiler: show
undoing into the last dream and doing the wrong thing there, so I could do the right thing the next time


but the game won't let me do that.

And when I try

Spoiler: show
be niney


I get the message

Spoiler: show
what would niney do?


which, you know, I've already tried both the answers that are hinted.

Also tried

Spoiler: show
morph niney, morph wrong thing, morph me, relinquish me


but they all yield parser errors or "That noun did not make sense in this context."

Also there's a death timer so that after a few commands that get turned into actions the game ends.

Obviously the game thinks it has communicated something to me that I haven't understood. Can anyone give me a hint?

The author responded to me at Emily Short's blog (rather large spoiler below, though if you're stuck in the same way as I was you might want to read it):

Spoiler: show
I wasn't stuck; the ending I got after a few turns is the only ending there is.

Yeah, I was stuck the same way you were. Hmm.
