The Triple-Filter Test // Triplaszűrő (Fun)
Posted 5 years ago by

Magyarul lentebb olvashatod!

In ancient Greece, Socrates was reputed to hold knowledge in high esteem. One day an acquaintance met the great philosopher and said, "Do you know what I just heard about your friend?"

"Hold on a minute," Socrates replied. "Before you talk to me about my friend, it might be good idea to take a moment and filter what you’re going to say. That’s why I call it the triple filter test. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?"

"Well, no," the man said, "actually I just heard about it and…"

"All right," said Socrates. "So you don’t really know if it’s true or not. Now, let’s try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my friend something good?"

"Umm, no, on the contrary…"

"So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me something bad about my friend, but you’re not certain it’s true. You may still pass the test though, because there’s one filter left—the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me?"

"No, not really."

"Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neither true, nor good, nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?"

It also explains why Socrates never found out that Diogenes was having an affair with his wife.

Az ókori Görögországban Szókratészt nagy becsben tartották tudása miatt. Egy nap egy ismerősével futott össze az utcán, aki azt mondta:
-Szókratész, akarod tudni, hogy mit hallottam a legjobb barátodról?

-Várj egy pillanatot! - válaszolt Szókratész.
- Mielőtt bármit mondanál, szeretném, ha megfelelnél három kérdésre.
Ezt hívják a tripla szűrőnek. Az első szűrő az Igazság. Teljesen megbizonyosodtál arról, hogy amit
mondani akarsz igaz?
-Nem. - Válaszolta az ember. - Éppenséggel csak hallottam róla, és ...
-Rendben, szóval nem igazán vagy biztos benne, hogy igaz-e vagy nem.

Most próbáljuk meg a második szűrőt, a Jóság szűrőjét: az, amit mondani akarsz a barátomról, valami jó dolog?
-Nem, épp ellenkezőleg...
-Szóval - folytatta Szókratész - valami rosszat akarsz mondani róla, de nem vagy benne biztos, hogy igaz.

- Semmi baj, a harmadik szűrő még hátra van: a Hasznosság.
Amit mondani akarsz a barátomról, az hasznos lesz nekem?
-Nem igazán.
-Nos - vonta le a következtetést Szókratész - ha mondani akarsz nekem valamit, ami nem igaz, nem jó és nem is hasznos, miért mondanád el egyáltalán?

És így sosem tudta meg Szókratész, hogy a legjobb barátja lefeküdt a feleségével...

About the game:

USA as a world power? In E-Sim it is possible!

In E-Sim we have a huge, living world, which is a mirror copy of the Earth. Well, maybe not completely mirrored, because the balance of power in this virtual world looks a bit different than in real life. In E-Sim, USA does not have to be a world superpower, It can be efficiently managed as a much smaller country that has entrepreneurial citizens that support it's foundation. Everything depends on the players themselves and how they decide to shape the political map of the game.

Work for the good of your country and see it rise to an empire.

Activities in this game are divided into several modules. First is the economy as a citizen in a country of your choice you must work to earn money, which you will get to spend for example, on food or purchase of weapons which are critical for your progress as a fighter. You will work in either private companies which are owned by players or government companies which are owned by the state. After progressing in the game you will finally get the opportunity to set up your own business and hire other players. If it prospers, we can even change it into a joint-stock company and enter the stock market and get even more money in this way.

In E-Sim, international wars are nothing out of the ordinary.

"E-Sim is one of the most unique browser games out there"

Become an influential politician.

The second module is a politics. Just like in real life politics in E-Sim are an extremely powerful tool that can be used for your own purposes. From time to time there are elections in the game in which you will not only vote, but also have the ability to run for the head of the party you're in. You can also apply for congress, where once elected you will be given the right to vote on laws proposed by your fellow congress members or your president and propose laws yourself. Voting on laws is important for your country as it can shape the lives of those around you. You can also try to become the head of a given party, and even take part in presidential elections and decide on the shape of the foreign policy of a given state (for example, who to declare war on). Career in politics is obviously not easy and in order to succeed in it, you have to have a good plan and compete for the votes of voters.

You can go bankrupt or become a rich man while playing the stock market.

The international war.

The last and probably the most important module is military. In E-Sim, countries are constantly fighting each other for control over territories which in return grant them access to more valuable raw materials. For this purpose, they form alliances, they fight international wars, but they also have to deal with, for example, uprisings in conquered countries or civil wars, which may explode on their territory. You can also take part in these clashes, although you are also given the opportunity to lead a life as a pacifist who focuses on other activities in the game (for example, running a successful newspaper or selling products).

At the auction you can sell or buy your dream inventory.

E-Sim is a unique browser game. It's creators ensured realistic representation of the mechanisms present in the real world and gave all power to the players who shape the image of the virtual Earth according to their own. So come and join them and help your country achieve its full potential.

Invest, produce and sell - be an entrepreneur in E-Sim.
