OuIt's finally that fateful day in Human history that we have discovered everything we wished to know about our selves. And the thing is--it proved everything you believe in wrong. How do you adapt or cope or whatever?

I said in one of the other threads, I try not to fully believe in any one theory. Therefore I'm not really coping or adjusting. I guess it depends how the physical world is affected though.

I don't think I could cope, if everything changed, for all I know I might not even exist :P xD

I would probably be extremely shocked, confused and left wondering who and what exactly I was, I dont think it would be easy for people.

I'd adapt. The things I believe in with the most conviction are more principles than anything. You know, like be fair to people. That can't really be proven wrong, so even if we ended up actually living in a world that's full of unfair, terrible whatevers I could still stick to my beliefs so I wouldn't be totally knocked for a loop. It'd be weird and shocking, I'm sure, but I'm also sure nothing like that will happen to me.

I'm quite stubborn sometimes, especially in what I 'believed' in. My views, anyway.
I would probably just kill myself. Or adapt. I'm pretty hardy, but I don't know. I don't even have the guts to kill myself.

Ehh, it's hard to imagine anyways.

I do not 'believe in' anything. I accept the universe for what it ostensibly is, in so far as it is relevant to my existence; if things will change, they simply will.

I don't even know. :x
Adapt, I guess, if possible. Though depending on the exact situation, I would potentially consider Insomniac's idea. :I

Edit: Just realized...would this mean I have no more morals? That would certainly have an upside. I could finally go back to "my old ways" haha. (:

If everything I knew to be true turned out to be a lie, I think I would handle it better than most. I have a built-in apathy toward anything in the world that doesn't affect me directly, so most of the revelations that came would have little effect on me, or relevance to me.

Those that did I'd just have to deal with in my own time. As long as I still had people around who cared about me, I don't think anything is really insurmountable.
