The purple button is the only one you can push.
The green button espouses a spiritual truth, the nature of the reality. Since this implies meaning and purpose, it is automatically subjective. There
can never be any definite nature of reality, or any absolute spiritual truth. If the Grand Architect says that it relates to the science
reality, then it is a wasted push, as humans are already making great strides towards understanding the science behind the laws which govern reality.
Further, since I could not profit directly from having this knowledge, I could not tell anyone. Telling someone would imply that I want them to know,
and if they did know, then I have profited emotionally (if not financially) from my telling them.
It is impossible to push the green button.
The yellow button drags us into a discussion on what constitutes evil. Is it evil to murder someone? What about if the individual you murder, was
going to murder someone else? If there is no war, then how can you support the existence of sports, or any type of activity where two sides compete
based on pride? War, at it's core, is just two groups (countries, religions, families, etc) wanting to be better than each other. It is no different
at its heart than any game of baseball, or soccer.
If nobody suffers, get's sick, or dies ever, then why would we develop things like diet, exercise, yoga, or work to cultivate the safest and most
healthy foods? What would happen to the millions of people whose professions are to take care of others? Psychologists, nurses, paramedics, doctors,
surgeons, pharmacists... all of them would be jobless.
To label something "evil" is to automatically state an opinion, not a fact, about it. And opinions are subjective. So the altruistic, peaceful,
non-threatening world... while wonderful for some... would be Hell for others. If, as I'm sure some of you would say, this peaceful world would
simply not have those types of individuals, then by what are you measuring the goodness of this world? If there are no criminals, or murderers, then
how do you know theft is wrong, or evil?
It is impossible to push the yellow button.
That leaves us with only one. $50,000,000 is a tangible, calculable, physical thing. It is not subjective, it does not require opinions, or
discriminations. I have the money, I can do whatever I want with it, and no other opinion matters because the money is, inherently, without conscience
or self-awareness. I could spend it on prostitutes, or donate it to charity, and it would not directly affect any other living soul in a way which
would nullify my decision to do with it what I did.
The only possible choice is the purple button.
