assume you can control your life as if it was a simulation/lucid dream, all aspects, physical, mental, etc. It is extremely easy for you to do this. I am saying you should not make your life flawless, without any errors, as good as can be.

the difference is, it's only a simulation/dream to you. You have infinite power, but it doesn't negate others' suffering and their value in life

I considered accepting this one. The core argument I would have made is that if you're going to live with the knowledge that it's a simulation anyways, why not game the system?

On the other hand, there was a pretty good debate I remember... Something about batman villains are preferable to being a good person, since in a simulation, they take up more time in the simulation, or get rendered in it more often... Sounds like an RM debate. Probably titled something like "It's preferable to not be a good person"?

I see you went with the former. Nice

This is an interesting one. You could maybe go the route I went with our "sharing all knowledge" debate, or you could try something totally unique. Good luck.
