The idea of the experience machine is very interesting. It is obvious to say that everyone would if he is able to control when he can get out of it. However, if the question becomes that the experience is permanent, most people back away from it. Even if the experience guarantees "maximum pleasure", most people do not want to trigger the machine to experience the maximum pleasure in a simulated world. Taking away all the technical reasons like the machine breaking in the process, or the machine not operating in full capacity, the biggest reasonsoning for the rejection of the machine seems to be moral. This reminds me of a movie The Truman Show, where the protagonist lives in a world where everyone aside from him is an actor, and the movies revolves around him finding out that his entire life is a reality TV show for other people. The experience Machine is just like Truman before he finds out. If Truman does not find out about the truth, he will live a happy life forever, allbeit ignorant that he is in a fake world. I would trigger the machine if I never finds out. Of course, when someone inside the machine finds out that it is a simulated experience, it is no doubt that he would not have wanted to trigger the machine. However, if I am ignorant of the fact that it is a machine, and I can happily, ignorantly live a life full of maximum pleasure, there seems to be no reason decline the opportunity. While one might say living a simulated life is immoral, I actually agree with it, but only if I am aware of the fact. If, in the simulated life, I know that there is a real world out there, I would definitely want to go back to the real world. But if I am completely unaware, I would treat the simulated world just as real as any real world.
