Would you act differently if you found out (knew 100%) that you were connected to 7 other people; your life influences them, and their life influences you? Example: One persons skills allows the others to get better at it. (Imagine a runner, the more he grows, the easier it would be for the other 7 people, but so too is the opposite, if he uses drugs, over eats, is destructive, it hurts you and the others)
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?
