Well I suppose this could be in the vein with the thread asking about which button you'd push, the one that let's you go but kills someone else or you kill yourself to save this other person. Of course they're in another identical room facing the same choice if I remember right.

Anyvey...

Personally I don't think I'm selfless enough to worry about someone who isn't even on this plane of existence yet. After all every single one of us is going to die at some point, that's the curse of living, so when it's something that's inevitable does it really matter if I choose to continue my existence by condemning a future possibility? They'd die one way or the other whether I choose to save myself or sacrifice myself. How is it decided who will be killed in the future? I'm interested. Also when are they killed in the future? Like how many life experiences are they allowed before the chopping block for my own survival?

However to be that guy, let's take the idea of Schrodinger's Cat into this hypothetical. Say I choose to save myself on this plane of existence. On another plane my "other" self would choose to sacrifice themself for this other person. Therefore regardless of my own personal choice this future person will still live on some plane of existence. (If I misused Schrodinger's Cat in place of a different theory I'd like to be corrected on it)


Uh wow you start talking as if the Multiverse theory is fact when it seems highly fiction with 0 proof behind it. Also the context behind Schrodinger's cat experience totally does not match this philosophy, you could use Schrodinger's cat experience as an idea to think of the possibilities of letting another human survive or let yourself live, but in the end, if you're going to look at this in association of quantum mechanics, then think of the probability of who could the surviving human possibly be, cause it may be some poor old hobo, some old guy who lived his life or someone with a deadly disease, so in a scientific regard, saving yourself, a healthy(?), young(?) and productive(??) person, is advantageous.

Hurray for science!


Huzzah!

So what if I do believe in the multiverse theory? You gotta believe in something.


Yep you're right, I mean I personally believe something with intelligence (God) created/started the Universe, I mean if you consider the possibilities, my belief is as legitimate as yours. But even believing the Multiverse theory, you honestly wouldn't really care if the person who died did so on another dimension would you? How would that even affect the current you or him on this dimension? I think you're just trying to use the Multiverse theory as an excuse to not chose to kill yourself, and claim it was the good decision. You're profiting off science, and I like that, and thus I like you.

Of course. Maybe it's because I'm selfish, but I certainly value my life more than any stranger's. I'd also have to consider how it would make my loved ones feel. If I died then they'd feel sad as well, and I wouldn't want that.

That person could possibly be the very being that could solve all the world's major issues, Meanwhile, a 20 year old anime watching loser in the southeastern United States is about to be killed horribly. Who would YOU want to live?

. . .

P.S. It's the former...
