You were transmigrated to an isekai universe that is the home of an advanced alien civilization known as the v̶̯̫͊̚l̶̬̀f̴̗̽̒o̸̡͌d̵̨̩̋̒s̴̫̻̍ä̵̼h̵̥͐̿a̴̪͔͗̊d̶͙̈f̷̳͊s̷͕̀ī̶͙̌ǎ̴̭̇n̵̳͗ṣ̵̜͝͝. The aliens are basically demigods and they are immortal. They are 5 times larger than humans (basically giants), extremely intelligent (capable of N-dimensional parallel thought) and they communicate with each other through telepathy and other transcendent senses. They are unable to communicate with humans (the aliens lack ears and eyes) and they are completely disinterested in doing so. From their perspective, humans are vulgar dumb beasts no different from a cockroach or sewer rat. If they really tried, they could interpret the human language (like how human biologists can study the language of bird calls), but a majority of aliens don't bother because humans are a meaningless waste of time to them. 90% of their planet is synthetic, which also means that there is almost no food or natural plants/animals lying around in the wild. The humans who live on this planet survive by scavenging off of the waste products and trash produced by the aliens. Attempting to enter the alien buildings will get humans killed or trapped or shot or electrocuted by a force field or some variation thereof with advanced technology beyond the ability of humans to comprehend. Alien technology seems to be incompatible with humans and no human has ever figured out how to operate alien technology. Life in the streets of this synthetic world is extremely tough. There is not enough food, and the humans often fight with each for the scraps. Nearly everyone is starving or on the brink of starving. There are a lot of diseases on the streets and there are no doctors or skilled professionals. If someone is injured, they are left to die. The humans in this world are also largely lawless. However, all humans share the same language so you can naturally understand them. + + + Lately, the aliens have been leaving out large cages with food in them. It is fairly obvious that it is a trap meant to catch humans. You saw a few of your fellow humans walk into the trap and get taken away by the aliens. You weren't sure exactly what happened to them, but one day you spotted them inside an alien residence behind a big glass(?) (impenetrable transparent material) window. They appeared to look healthy, collared, and superficially they appeared to be treated as house pets. You have no other information, and it is impossible to communicate with the trapped humans. Would you consider going into the trapped cages with food? The alternative is to stay on the streets, close to starvation every day. You are likely infested with parasites and other diseases, you are scratched up with injuries, and you aren't sure how long you will manage to stay alive for. The life expectancy for wild humans in this world is around 25 years old. 1. Do you choose freedom or the cage? Why? 2. If you were caught against your will, would you fight? What if you were told by a friend that resisting the aliens only causes them to be more cruel in their treatment towards you? 3. Suppose that some aliens are nice and some are mean. What percentage of aliens have to be nice for you to consider going into the cage? (e.g. if 90% of aliens were mean vs. if 10% of aliens were mean). 4. How would you feel if you were spayed/neutered by the aliens, or various other things were done to you without your consent? What if you were told that it was for "your own good"? 5. How would you expect to be treated as a pet, assuming that it is impossible for you to communicate with your owners? Would you have lines that you would absolutely refuse to cross and resist to the ends of the universe? 6. Could you ever learn to like your owner or develop protective feelings towards them?
