Consider the Potential Benefits: A Thought Exercise

Choose Health Early on

Consider this thought experiment: Does life extension make you happier?

We’ll do a thought-experiment today. Imagine a world where you exist as a disembodied being before you’re born. Some people believe that this is possible, but it’s not the point of our thought experiment.

Birth is a Choice

Imagine that you, as a soul disembodied, have a human perspective on life: you would like to experience new things, avoid unpleasant situations, etc. Imagine that you can choose whether or not you want to be born. Someone comes along and convinces you that it is a good idea to be born. You can’t predict the future or know how your life will be, but you know what you have to do.
