Descartes' wicked demon and Maxwell's demon are involved in a closed quantum experiment measuring whether or not they are gay. If they kiss and light from that kiss passes through a double slit revealing that light is a particle, a hammer will smash a vial containing its own trolley problem in some way impacted by heat such that Maxwell's demon becomes relevant. If the light is a wave, then they are safe, but Maxwell's demon will be interviewed such that its experience kissing the wicked demon will no longer seem to have an ontologically consistent basis; this eventually would lead to Maxwell's demon becoming enlightened. In this scenario, is it ethical to disclose particle-wave duality beforehand knowing that it could cause them not to kiss, which may result in Maxwell's demon remaining in Samsara?
A trolley is careening down a set of tracks. The tracks are behind a blind at the center of a circular prison such that each prisoner knows they are potentially involved in a trolley problem without being able to confirm at any given time whether the trolley is aimed at them. In this case, would it then be ethical to lie if the trolley came to the door asking for information that could reveal the whereabouts of a prisoner, knowing the likely outcome?
@firstname.lastname@example.org oh i know this one! i choose to swap to the third trolley, improving my chances of winning to 2/3
