This is a bit of a weird question however put yourself in this scenario.
Say for some unknown reason you've come to a choice between choosing between obtaining your fantasy or a selfish desire at the cost of ending all of humanity. Or you could save humanity by not choosing this desire.
(And to be specific you couldn't just have the desire to rebuild humanity)
What would you do? Why would you choose what you chose?

I would choose to be selfish in this scenario. Mostly because I wouldn't care all too much for what the cost is to obtain that fantasy/selfish desire.

So what would you choose?

I'd just like to be clear: framing this as a choice between selfishness/selflessness, although arguably accurate, is beyond asinine. I would suggest that a more appropriate way of putting it is, "Am I a psychotic asshole who is delusional enough to believe that I could (or would even want to) live without any of the benefits of society for more than a few weeks or months?" For an uncountable number of reasons, the answer to that question should be "NO."

What if my fantasy is to live in the world with everyone alive but I don't have to work anymore, and I have unlimited money?

You'd be able to do such however there wouldn't be people. You'd have enter a world that is entirely different from the world you use to be in essentially

Say you wanted to be apart of the pokemon world and you chose to be selfish. You'd be able to do that and there would be the characters from pokemon except no one else from the previous world you just essentially doomed if that makes any sense.

Basically I'm saying if you choose the selfish option everyone except you from your world/reality will be erased forever pretty much.

That awkward moment when you think too hard about a thread in an anime site.

Hmmm in all honesty wouldn't do anything would just walk away and not do anything. Since it would be boring living all by myself and I would feel 100% extremely terrible afterwords in all honesty.
