Ignoring paradoxes and the like, imagine your future self walks into the room, provides overwhelming evidence that they are in fact a future incarnation of you.

They then tell you to do something you would NEVER decide to do on your own (e.g. quit your awesome job, divorce your wonderful spouse, murder someone, poke out your own eyes, take your pick). They promise that it will all work out for the best if you.

Do you do it? Do you trust yourself?

@saramg IF they're literally me, why would I not trust them? I hope I have my own best intentions in mind.

@wholemilk That's the crux. Every logical argument says: "It's you, trust you." But if you are saying " commit permanent self harm ", then that creates a pretty strong counter argument.
