If you like anime you might have heard of the series this Spring called Kiznaiver.
If not, the basic principal (at its basic level) is that a group of people have been forced to feel each other’s physical and (slightly spoiler-y I guess if you haven’t seen the last episode but something you should have guessed was coming) emotional pain. Its a experiment being carried out to bring, allegedly, peace to the world.
In the anime they weren’t given a choice but for this discussion you have the choice.
So, to better understand people, would YOU agree to share someone’s pain?
