Let's make things more complicated

Fiction By Aalen Fideli // 9/21/2012

The following is adapted from a series of discussions and thought experiments between myself and LKR.

Thought Experiment 1
What if an alien took everyone from earth except you and one other person? You don't know who they are or where, but you are charged with finding them. If you succeed, everyone will be restored.
How would you go about survival and eventually locating and reaching the other person?

Thought Experiment 2
What if everyone disappeared except you and your friends? Who would be left?

Thought Experiment 3
If everyone disappeared except you and those of your friends you choose, who would you pick and why?

Thought Experiment 4:
If you and a few of your friends had to survive an apocalypse, who would you choose and why?
(Choose an apocalypse: Zombie, Meteor, Alien invasion)

If you feel like playing or have questions about this or any other post, comment below.


The complications arise!

Morally and intellectually, this is an incredibly dizzying game, not to mention convicting. For instance: at least one of the thought experiments makes you look at how you choose your friends.
Them's murky waters...
