    And the meaning of this stage is then? To train what?

    probably a combination of willpower and searching skills. resist the temptation of paradise and find your target.

    oooor become stupid OP by soloing everything and wiping out the entire island.

    Ah, MC has a major case of depression and engages in masochistic self abuse to cope. This floor is the most dangerous trap for him due to happiness 'high' available in large quantity.

    I would argue that Hojae is sadistic rather than masochistic. in my opinion he gains pleasure from the result of dealing pain to himself. I.E resistance skills. rather than feeling pleasure from the pain itself.

    Oh good! LHJ can also think of the military applications of such a drink. Thank goodness his poison resistance is too low to prevent him from getting drunk and throwing up. :p

    Hm, people who are tired of life come here. After the festival ends, their donations are used to fund the next batch.

    This isn't some massive suicide island is it? Like, the guy in charge (the target?) leads them all to kill themselves at the end, and what's more, their organs or souls or something are used as the ingredients in the next batch, which is why production accelerated year-on-year right? So this stage is dangerous because you might just off yourself like an idiot? =_=

    Do the challenges age inside the Tutorial? Of course, they grow up mentally, but what about their bodies? Do they grow old?
    If their bodies really start growing older inside the Tutorial then our MC is already 34 years old on the 60th floor. Doesn't it seem too unfair to lose your attractiveness as time passes just because you got dragged in unwillingly? It'd be great if their body's age remains the same but they grow older mentally.
    I've started shipping the bow-girl and our MC, but they are fourteen years apart and it would be really awkward if one looks like an uncle and the other just stopped being a teen.

    Even if they did age though... why should the tutorial be 'fair'? I mean, even if they did stop aging, once they go out, they'd have an age gap compared to their family and friends outside. That's pretty darn awkward too...

    Not only do they not age, when they started the tutorial their ages regressed to late teens (iirc).

    This stage is more like a test to endure drug induce symptoms, not to create resistence but to be able to function under the effects, thats why the drink and talking and spending a good time is so addictive, he needs to be able to funtion under those effects.

    I've thought about this briefly, but honestly, what's the point of having nice skin when you're stuck inside the tutorial? xD

    No they don't, there are old people in the tutorial, it's just that the tutorial makes your old age irrelevant as you become stronger.

    This is different from age reversal (if it were the case it'd be explicitely described as 'old people became younger'). It's more akin to becoming one of those badass old kung-fu masters you see in martial arts movies: you're still old, but you're able to kick ass.

    Like Rah Ab Dul father in Batman, he can dispatch almost any renown Martial Artist in 15 Seconds.

    Nah, it's masochistic. He's using physical pain to distract himself from mental trauma/pain, a nasty habit he picked up from the 2nd floor Boss room that acerbated on the 6th floor and got worse from there.

    you say physical pain as an escape. isn't that a symptom of self harm through depression or anxeity and not for pleasure?

    Which is why it's masochistic, when physical pain is used as a mask for psychological problems to the point where it becomes normalized or pleasurable.
