Ask Your Question
You are given the option to go through a door. If you go through this door, nothing bad would ever happen to you again.
Would you go through it?
A frictionless existance? No thanks
Bad according to who?
Tempted to say yes, but I'm super paranoid about this kind of thing, so had to say no out of caution.
I'm missing too much information. Does that include death? I don't necessarily want to live forever. Does that include my emotions? That would mean that either no one close to me would ever die, either, or my brain would be tweaked to make me incapable of sadness. I don't want to be lobotomized. If a nuke fell on me, I wouldn't want to be just walking through the wreckage and human-shaped scorch marks with a smile on my face like nothing happened. Wait, does that affect my physical health as well? If I could never be hurt, never get sick, never die, and never care, I could foresee myself being the biggest asshole in the known universe. Nope. No no.
After overthinking this and also reading 1WeirdGuy's answer, I'm surprised so many people chose Yes on this. A lot of people want to never grow.
I'm one of those silly people who believe that the bad parts of life just make the good things better, so no, I wouldn't do it.
Nothing silly about that
Definitely. If something bad happens to me that causes my significant other to worry, but if nothing bad can happen to me then her life is a big chunk less stressful.
I don’t fetishize trauma and conflict so absolutely I would go through the door
The negative shit that’s happened in my life didn’t “strengthen” or weaken any of my ideals or my goals, I’m the same person today that I was 10 years ago
I want to bullet-train brute-force my way to the finish line, obstacles and competition are a nuisance
No. Life would being boring. The bad things are what make the good moments matter.
Of course I would. Even if you think "oh then you'll never now how good you have it", well I wouldn't think that because that's something bad happening to me, in my brain. So 100% yes anyone who picked no is stupid.
This is the kind of wish a Djinn would twist.
Yes, I would go through that door, I've been wishing for such a door since I was 7 years old, bad is subjective, but it's taken as true how bad I am when I'm rebelling, or breaking a single rule. It's so subjective that there's a lot of moral inventions that can cause trouble, since I'm shit at inventing socially acceptable morals, I should wake up and realise that nothing of anything different is socially acceptable, since everyone's got different morals, I choose the door of my good, not somebody else's, people are going to make bad things happen to what's good because they're jealous, they even hate how nice you are, or how funny you are, anything of good is risky, even being a genius or a perfectionist is risky, so yes, I'm some fool who will fall for something good despite the risk.
There’s a philosophical problem with the question, in that bad is a subjective term. So the question actually doesn’t mean anything.
Of course i would go! And if there was a second option: a door which if you go through, your very existence were completely erased from the universe, i'd go without even thinking.
You can learn from those bad things. In fact, you probably learn more. But it's all a matter of perspective and mostly subjective.
This is something I would have to actually think deeply about because every action has a reaction. If nothing ever happened to me bad would I even understand how good I have it? I credit my strength and toughness from the poverty I grew up in and the shitty things I experienced. The best things that ever happened to me for my development as a man were the worst things that ever happened to me.
I think that is the point of the question. I, too, went through many traumas. My first answer to this question, was NO. It just surprised me. But the only thing I can change about a situation is my reaction to it.
