What if the person who can see the future see themselves lose…

Neither, they both lose in the preliminaries to a guy with laser eyes. (If super powers are allowed… than super powers are allowed.

You will lose, regardless. This is the future. The destiny has been decided. Face my wrath.

Given the state of the world, i think seeing the future would distract significantly from the chess match.

Who reads my mind wont have the biggest advantage unless I really know what I’m doing. They cant predict good things that happen due to errors on my side.

Now if I do predict the future, I’ll only know what will happen - not how to prevent it.

And they even wrote “see the future”, not just “predict the future”, so I’m not sure it would even be possible to change it at all…

The person who can read minds has a clear advantage because they could also see the future, no?

It’s a paradox. I can see what you will do in the future, but you can read my mind and see it too, and so you will change your next moves, but if I can see the future, surely I would already know that, but then you will know it too, so you change your moves… etc.

The only way out is if you make the same moves regardless of what you read in my mind.

Rules:

  1. Be civil and nice.
  2. Try not to excessively repost, as a rule of thumb, wait at least 2 months to do it if you have to.
