Now don't twist the question into believing this question is about We-Are-One, and we must sacrifice for the greater good type question. (My readers know that I am: All for one, one for all, the Greater good is NOT like that). It is straight forward, and fictional. Imagine. You are connected to only these 7 strangers, for a total of 8, you don't know them, but they are out there. So again: Would you act differently if you knew you were connected to 7 other people and each action affected them, just as theirs affects you?
