If There Were No Rewards or Punishments

if there were no rewards

if there were no punishments

would you still be who you are

or would most of you evaporate

Niki Kaur

I wonder how many people would still act the way they do if there was no promise of a reward or punishment.

If there was no concept of gaining or losing something, would it make us nicer in some circumstances and less nice in other circumstances?

I wonder how our authentic personalities would act. Would kinder, more honest, and more fair personalities emerge from within? Would we be less conflicted with ourselves? Would we live more fulfilling lives?
