You do realize both of those choices suck, right? It's like asking me whether I'd rather lose my legs or my arms.

what's the difference? if you're living a morally perfect life, aren't you going to be free of guilt etc?

seems I can not make a decision.............

I agree with cruchy toast

I think I would prefer to live without the judgement of others as that leads to feelings of guilt and pains that a human can live without. To say one is morally perfect or living moraly perfect has a need of the outside judgement to be in a state of acceptance in a world of morals. To live without this............that is the prefered
state. this is the way



or..............I am perfect in my own little world



and the mind goes on in a state of spinning nonsense and delight.

Is the second choice implying a choice to be a sociopath?
