I don't think I'd take oblivion for any purpose, even
to save ten other people. Although I'd really love to
be that philosophical, I just can't pay my life for
ideals like utilitarianism.

However, the question of oblivion to save every other
human is different... since living without a single
other person would mean death anyway (I don't think I
alone could engender the apotheosis), it's really just
a question concerning whether or not I really want
those extra forty years... or however long my natural
body has left.
