Nozick's "Experience Machine"
I came across this thought experiment by Robert Nozick today called the "Experience Machine", it really engaged me:

This idea of a machine that provides constant pleasure but in a virtual realm reminds me of entertainment and social media today. Especially with the rise of VR videogaming, the concept hits home on the positive benefits of real interaction. In a consumerist society, maybe we all need to step back and consider what really matters in the end.
