There was a philosopher who said,
There’s a machine, somehow, somewhere
That if you hook it up to your head
Will give you unlimited pleasure there.

The same pleasure you’d feel living life.

If you are connected to the pleasure machine,
You never have to do anything ever again.
For example, it would give you the thrill of skiing
Without ever risking injury to your brain.

For the rest of your life.

The pleasure machine produces the pleasure of procreation
Without the pesky problem of locating a mate.
You get the feeling of every pleasurable sensation
Without actually experiencing anything.

Would you take it?

Deep. Very deep. I personally wouldn't take it, because while in that state, I would be unable to improve the lives of others, and go about my life unaccomplished. This was jsut so deep! I like it alot.
