This is a very special and intense fantasy. I bet you’ve heard about the Stanford prison experiment. It got me thinking. Not about the obvious moral question “why did the guards do it?”, but about the question “why did prisoners and guards go along so well with it?” And after thinking about it more… I found an unending supply of arbitrary rules that we as humans like. Is there a kind of basic switch in us? Something that makes us like following rules blindly?
So I designed my own little prison experiment. You can call it the ViVe Prison Experiment if you like. It’s a pure thought experiment. Once you are deep in trance, I will subject you to a prison environment, where the rules are absolute. The guards are drones, robots, and they follow all rules to the letter. And so will you. Sooner or later. This is partially a fantasy of a prison experience, and partially a social experiment. Once it’s over, and you’re back to your normal you, you will still be in the obedient mindset this prison creates. You can enjoy it for the rest of the day until the next time you sleep, or will it away at any time, and it will just do so.
Please give feedback, remember, it IS an experiment!
This is not for everyone. It’s an intense experience; the prison is designed to subjugate you completely and objectify you. Not objectify as in “serve as an object,” but as in “only act on orders, never on your own volition.” It’s an intense experience. Yes, there are the usual safeties, but it’s one of my more extreme fantasies.
For everyone who doesn’t have someone to obey, there is a repetition of the prison rules at the end. Yes, the rules. The ones that helped you survive the prison. That gave you orientation, comfort. That guided you. Just as a bonus for everyone listening to this alone, if you want to enjoy the state of mind a bit more.
