The Extinction Dilemma

T**here is no finite number of lives that reach utopia, for which I would accept Omega's bet at a 90% chance of extinction. **

This does not mean I would accept Omega's bet at 89% chance of extinction (I wouldn't), but 90% is far above my ceiling, and I'm very sure of it.

Inspiration came from Against the Linear Utility Hypothesis and the Leverage Penalty

What about 1:3 odds?

What about 3:1 odds?

What is the highest probability of extinction at which you would accept Omega's offer?

What does this say about your utility function?
