Alright. Hopefully I didn't misunderstand you a second time.>So if not for the chance of idea going completely wrong, we wouldn't feel like it's worth our time?
I think it depends on both the person, and how great the penalty for "completely wrong" is. It's a quality of a person called "risk-aversion".
For some people, the possibility of failure is alluring. For others, it's a source of crippling stress.>Now, in a world like this, would a murder, euthanasia, terrorism and suicide become even more "special" or would it be less of a deal?
Hmm. That's something that'll take some real pondering I think. If I come up with something, I'll let you know later.>Would an act of removing the possibility of failure lead us into an oblivion as human species?
I'm not sure if it would result in oblivion for us as a species. A while back, somebody made a thread here. I think it was Thailand, but if it wasn't it was some country with a similar standard of living, probably. They complained about depression in first world countries, asking how or why such a thing can happen. People in their country live much harder lives, at much greater risk of danger.
I think that some degree of the removal of the possibility of failure probably contributes to this. If not oblivion for humanity as a whole, removal of the possibility of failure surely brings about oblivion for certain people.>Who the frick would even want to look out for the answers instead of waiting the eternity out on, I dunno - being a mankind, looking for sources of energy and just overall passing time untill somebody's crazy enough to risk their immortality onto some, now, trivial questions?
You can count me in, Yuuka. I want to die, not necessarily now, but eventually. Those stories that go on and on, but never end are just the worst, right~?>>5795434
