Self-Control Is Just Empathy With Your Future Self - The Atlantic - Ed Yong - Dec 6, 2016

This quote a été ajouté par betty_d
Empathy depends on your ability to overcome your own perspective, appreciate someone else's, and step into their shoes. Self-control is essentially the same skill, except that those other shoes belong to your future self. A removed and hypothetical entity who might as well be a different person. So think of self-control as a kind of temporal selflessness. It's Present You taking a hit to help out Future You.

The Present You helping out the Future You... How interesting! I have the opposite thought. I am miserable, in custody, and without hope, and has absolutely no one to trust. I am mind-controlled, enslaved by the vampire, and cannot break free. I look out of the window and wish the Future Me would arrive in a time machine and deliver me out of this prison. But then I thought, the Future Me cannot contact the Present Me; otherwise, the timeline would be disrupted. Therefore, even if the Future Me did visit, the Present Me would never know. With that thought, the Present Me recollects himself and goes back to accepting and enduring the sufferings for eternity. The Multiverse continues to exist purely relying on the tinge of contentment out of that belief, in the very core of the Present Me.
