Very Bad Wizards did an episode on Severance
this week with psychologist Paul Bloom. (Warning: Spoilers galore in the podcast. Finish the show first.) I enjoyed their take on it as a work of philosophy. Are innies and outies the same person if they don’t share memories? What’s the difference between past us making binding commitments on future us and outies making commitments on innies? Is it possible that anesthesia is morally wrong, depending on what’s actually happening in the brain during a procedure?
