    Default Mephistopheles?

    My brethren,

    Would you sell your souls for knowledge of the universe?

    No, but I'd sell yours.
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    What if you were not sure if you wanted to believe there is life after death, yet somebody told you that there is, but you can still sell your soul for knowledge? My vote was no in honor of my Christian faith, otherwise I just might take the gamble.

    I wouldn't do this deal, the soul is too important. I would likely try to find something less important to my but valuable to the evil entity making the deal, that I could trade for knowledge.

    Assuming I had one, which I don't, I woudn't sell it for knowledge. I have sources of knowledge at my fingertips and I waste most of the chances I have to use them. Instead I just waste my time and my brains.

    So no, I wouldn't sell it for knowledge.

    Power, on the other hand...

    That'd be crap. I'd have nothing left to do.

    If everything is fact then I'm checking out. Stuff your knowledge I'm keeping my soul.

    Oh and just in case I also learned the greatest song in the world
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Yes.
