Did you know that one in wants to know if you - actually - like ?

Robert Nozick, a , wanted you to imagine that you are offered a sophisticated machine which can perfectly simulate all the things you deem most pleasurable.

He asks you now: would you prefer this to real life?

Nozick assumes you don't & uses that as a justification against () hedonists.

Thought experiments can be (to a degree) by actually asking people.

Philosopher Felipe de Brigard actually did ask students to determine the validity of Nozick's claim. He separated them into 3 groups: 1. No info of what their real life is like, 2. Prisoner, 3. Hyperwealthy artist.

He found that while most people choose the machine in group 2., the answers in group 1. & 3. were almost equal.

He concluded a status quo bias.

cazabon,

As you might have #guessed, the motor in my other furnace #failed last week.

I've removed it from the furnace and #tested it, and just like the first one, the motor itself checks out fine - no #electrical or #mechanical #problems at all.

The #electronics in it have failed. And only a few months after the other one. It's almost like they're #designed to #fail; otherwise, how could you make a ton of #money by #charging #monopoly prices for what is otherwise a #generic 1/2 HP motor?
