HEAVY OBJECT:Volume14 Prologue
Would you prefer to be ruled by people or by machines?
Oh, but don’t just answer without thinking. This question contains a trick that cuts right to the inner side of whoever answers it.
To give it away, you can see a certain trait of people who say they would prefer machines. Those people don’t believe they would ever be one of the rulers. So if the alternative is being outdone and trampled on by someone else, they would prefer for everyone to be ruled equally by machines.
So what about the other people? The people who prefer people think they could be one of those rulers. They see the machines as a group they can never be a part of, so it’s pointless. They would prefer to maintain the human-ruled system so they can work to overthrow their ruler and end up at the top themselves.
Was that an unpleasant topic?
But the world is full of choices like that. The choices you make without really thinking reveal the beliefs you hold deep inside. Have you ever worried about someone seeing your search history? Or your online purchase history? How about the free-to-play apps you enjoy? Did anything come to mind?
With that in mind, give these questions a look.
- Who are happier: the poor or the rich?
- Which scares you more: becoming a perpetrator or becoming a victim?
- If you could be reborn, would you prefer to be the same sex or the opposite sex?
Yes, yes. It doesn’t really matter how you answer these questions. You can judge someone’s humanity by whether they change their answer because they know there’s a trick or if they stick with their original answer.
But you don’t need to worry about this.
All of these questions are really only something inputted into a cold machine.
