Where are the 5 laws (or more) mentioned in the text?

Are they in this or some other supplement?

The Five Laws of Robotics appear in The Big Book of Bots unchanged from their original appearance in Acute PARANOIA (1985):
  • 1. A robot may not, through action or inaction, allow The Computer to come to harm.
    2. A robot must obey any order from The Computer, except when doing so would conflict with the first law.
    3. A robot may not, through action or inaction, allow any of The Computer's valuable property (including the human citizens of Alpha Complex (except for traitors)) to come to harm, except when doing so would conflict with the first or second law.
    4. A robot must obey any order given it by a citizen, unless that order conflicts with the first, second, or third law, or unless that citizen is a traitor.
    5. A robot must seek to preserve its own existence, unless doing so would conflict with the first, second, third, or fourth law.
