Ignoring paradoxes and the like, imagine your future self walks into the room, provides overwhelming evidence that they are in fact a future incarnation of you.

They then tell you to do something you would NEVER decide to do on your own (e.g. quit your awesome job, divorce your wonderful spouse, murder someone, poke out your own eyes, take your pick). They promise that it will all work out for the best if you.

Do you do it? Do you trust yourself?

For the lower end of tasks (quitting a job, committing some minor crime), I can probably say I would.

For the upper end? Fuck man.... I don't think I could take that kind of shit on faith.


@saramg I mean, some of those upper end things I'd totally be "you first."
