Trolley Problem Anonymous 48049

So, what do you do?

Don't pull the lever, it seems more gruesome to just nonstop plow through them since everyone's touching on the bottom track

I'd also hop on top of the train and watch from above while laughing manically alongside the sound of countless people screaming.

but it’s infinity

With infinity people the universe is gonna run out of food either way so we're all dead no matter what.

The infinite people create infinite mass folding space on itself so the train never passes the event horizon. The black hole of infinite people creates a super consciousness that consumes the entire universe into a higher psychic realm.

Wouldn't all those bodies get caught under the troll eventually causing it to stop?

Joseph Cantor stay out of ethics, you don't belong there you are a mathematician. Numbers don't have moral codes, you are making yourself look silly

infinity is a concept, the concept of having no set limit, there is no actual such thing as an infinity of any material object, not even all the atoms in the universe are an infinite number.

Infinity is an idea, it's a way not to put limits on something like a solution, it's not a real tangible thing.

what about space and time? shouldn't those be infinite since they cant have a beginning and end?

Don’t pull the lever. Trolley can keep on going it’s merry way and it can stop if it wants. My soul is clean.

Anonymous 48189

Not that poster but time is not a thing, it's a concept/idea. As for space it also cannot be infinite, if something that exists is infinite then nothing else could exist. To be infinite means that everything everywhere, would be said infinite stuff. At that point motion and change become impossible because everything is the same thing.
