Yes or No thought experiment

Yes or No thought experiment
I have a weird thought experiment that I´d like some feedback on.


Say when you commit a certain act, let´s call it the "red pill", you recieve a negative consequence/punishment. Now the red pill is something you´re very fond of. It brings you joy. It´s a pleasurable experience. You know that after you´re done with the red pill you will experience a temporary pain and suffering. The act of doing the red pill isn´t good for your physical health but it´s not that bad either. The punishment is recieved via an external source outside the act of doing the red pill. And the joy it brings is temporary as well.

Here´s the fun bit

What if you recieved the negative consequence/punishment before doing the red pill? Granting you a chance to do the red pill without recieving mentioned effects afterwards. The cycle would continue like this.

Would you do it?

Depends on what specifically is the Red Pill and what are the consequences.

What are the consequences?

Specifically.

In my case, If I do take the consequences first... I will completely dive into the Bottle of red pills head first.

The consequence is bad but when you are in so deep it doesnt matter.

It then becomes your life.

But... that depends specifically on the "red pill" and the "consequences."

Whether or not its worth it.

I’ve heard this one. It’s the pre-hangover, or do time in jail now , for a future crime .

Nah....I like the regret after the fact. Just seems right.

I dont know, if you had the hangover before drinking you could drink waaaaay more than you would normally.

Theres no limit after you´ve done your time.

Limitless drinking, until you stop.

If I really really loved the Red pill then it would be a yes... But then again I am reckless. I guess if I get the consequence before hand and can then fully enjoy the good effects I would... But it would have to be like that addiction level good. I´m prone to addiction :61:

He just said there is a consequence, but while still feeling good from the first pill I would dive into the others and the first pill will dull some of the pain as I get to the second high/feel good stage.

Limitless.

But what if it is a controlled allowance and not at your discretion for consumption?

If it becomes you´re life and you would break you´re mind and go through pain first just to have it, you will do some crazy shit to break the rules to get what you want.

I feel bad for the distributer...

My point, it depends on what it is and what is it worth to that person.

Let´s say you´re hungry but you have to fight a pack of coyotes to get to your food and home.

In that mindset towards the red pill. You would go through hell and back to get what you want or at that point need.

Rage is scary but predictable.

Desperation is unpredictable.

Valid point. I guess it´s a matter then of necessity?

It´s whatever that specific person makes of it.

If I want something I dive in deep.

A new device, studying, ect.

I change everything until I get it. IF i want it bad enough.

At that point all that matters is the fact that you are getting your red pills... if not... I feel bad for you... or/and the company you keep...

Scary experiment... to say the least...

Scary no rather its more a phylosophical study of human behavior. But the whole of life is pleasure begot pain. I actually do like the idea of the suffering before the pleasure. It prevokes the quality of the pleasure that much more intense because you have the memory of the pain. Your enjoyment is higher. Thus knowing choosing the pill again the "consequence" is survivable.

I think of the pain before the pleasure because you can experience pleasure way more without the consequences later but before.

But in the end, id rather have no pain at all

Having no pain is irrational and a delusion nothing worth having comes without some measure of consequence

By your standards.

Realistically speaking only in general not saying you are by any means but you can´t actually want something and receive it without knowing some sense of sacrifice is involved

Taxpayer´s pay for that ... Even though the sacrifice isn´t directly associated to those receiving doesn´t mean in any means that that freedom was giving without sacrifice.
