    This remembered me about the story of a railroad-worker/controller, sacrificing his son to save more lives like god sacrificing his only son jesus christ to save more lives.

    Link for the story that relates this
    FYI. I just share this cause this is the 1st thing that comes on my mind.......

    heres my view: if both groups both know they shouldnt be on the track, then pull. If only the group of 5 knows they shouldnt be on track, dont pull. If only the one person knows, pull. If niether know, pull.

    I gotta say those attention warnings would seem very fishy to me, as well as the workers, who shouldn't be on track when a trains coming and seem to be blind, as well as deaf.

    I already doubted it because these reactions from the subjects seemed faked AF, but this proves it
    the lever is already down at track 2 before he pulls it in this shot 27:23
    Really disappointed in Vsauce, I thought your intention was to educate people not deceive them

    I'd let it kill the 5 because the dude on the other track knows the train isn't coming his way while the other 5 do. Let natural selection do its work. Also, as soon as you pull that lever..that one guys death is your fault.

    This is a terrible experiment. So you put someone that isn't trained that has no affiliation with the company and puts them in a Room because it's hot outside with someone who's working that supposed to be there but he leaves. You have no responsibility and no liability in that Room but as soon as he leaves and you touch something then you assume all responsibility and liability. As soon as you switch it to kill the single person you will liable for that person's death but if you leave it to kill the 5 people and not touch anything it would be on the company.

    I remember reading about this kind of thought experiment in psychology class, and it was neat to see it actually done. I would be curious to see it performed again, but next time have the one individual on the track be a very close loved one.

    These are not enough subjects and you should take them from different backgrounds not all Americans,
    I would have chose the track to stay on 1 because of multiple reasons. One being families are easier to morn when there are others with the same loss.
    2 this could be an incident that shows the lone person that he’s meant to exist, as there was an equal chance of both sides dying. Changing anything is basically changing fate which is wrong.

    The subjects were not given any true information to make a valid approval for participating the "real" experiment. How could you experiment on any human subjects without having the subjects' consent to do the "real" experiment on them??? Is it even legal to do human experiment without their consent???

  • Andy Tang
    Andy Tang 3 days ago

    I have been subscribing Vsauce for 8 years, so I am a huge fan for Vsauce! But I got to say that I am still terrified at the post-experimental behaviour of the subjects. They seemed to be way calmer than I had expected. If the experiment was so real that the subjects truly believed that they just "killed" someone regardless of the situation, I think the amount of guilt could be so overwhelming that their reaction, when they realized that it was just a test, would be far more violent.

    Technically the probability of that one of the group workers noticing the vibrations of the ground and warn others is far more likely than the single worker which's outside of range of the group for direct physical contact to warn him.

    • Martin
      Martin Day ago

      That too would be an interesting hypothetical question but probably requires too much preparation because then the participant also has to experience the trembling of the train before doing the test to make it as likely as possible that someone flips it.
      If it's unknown how noticable the trembling is, nobody would switch it.

    • Mike Shmidt
      Mike Shmidt Day ago

      That's what I was thinking this whole time man. I think it'd be interesting if the lever was on the setting to kill 1 person, to see if anyone wourd flip it then.

    I would not pull the lever.
    The train is on the track for a reason.
    And there are to many unknowns if you switch.
    Imagine you did it and then you realise that you instead frontal crashes two trains.

    This is madness, this is surreal.
    Micheal, since you clearly lack any sort of conclusive results to your emotionally compromising experiment, let me be of help: this was one of the most cheap, gratuitous, inconclusive, and totally arbitrary emotional burdens I've seen delivered to "test" patients.
    This might just be the last time I've given full attention to your work, sorry
    PS: in case this video made you gain subs I'd like to add that, in my opinion, the quality of your subscribers partially defines your work, which I won't be part of anymore

    Why do you think that the best outcome is to mimick the human decision. Why we dont ask ourselves if an AI can be more intelligent than human, there is a chance it can learn to be more ethical.

    Even with the etical posture of the Greater Good, It's not completly a good if it involves son evil on it, analogy of this is that good is only and remains good if it's totally good, if you leave food in a place where is not going to rot it will never rot, but if you leave it exposed it will rot to the bottom. You will say that food always rot but that is not true, that's how you make the most delicious meat in the world, you put it in a cover of butter or something that prevents it from having oxigen and light and voila, you put that meat for a coulple of months and it will be the most delicious and tender meat you have tried. It's an interesting thing to discuss, the ethics.
