    This is the two envelope paradox. Its actually best to go with nox one because thats a 1000 dollars auto. You run the risk of either getting 1 million or zero. So its a 50/50 chance as compared to the first box with is 100 percent chance of gaining.

    If your saying the supercomputer can predict your choice with an insane accuraccy will mean that if you take only box 2 there will be 1 000 000 insanely often, and if you take both boxes there will be only 1 000 dollars insaleny often too, so the choice is actually very easy

    Lets humor the "Paradox". The computer has "insane accuracy" and has been right "hundreds of times". Neither of these mean the computer is infallible meaning picking both is always the right answer since the computer decided before hand. For this to be a true paradox the computer would have to anticipate your answer as you are making the decision, based on all natural human tells making this more realistic, not beforehand.

      I was writing a long ass reply before realising you would get nothing if the cpu predicted option 1 and you picked option 2. You’re right, this is kinda dumb.

    I find myself in this situation, what do i do? To aquire both rewards, one must choose both boxes, without choosing both boxes. Perhaps by choosing the second box, only to come back later to pick up the first box? But the computer would have predicted this perhaps by choosing before the computer's prediction, might you be able to sake both rewards... The computer would have almost certainly predicted this... Maybe-maybe there is no way to get both rewards at the same time... Or maybe it doesn't even matter.....

    So if it puts a million in box two, and I choose box two, I get that million dollars. Except it knows if I am going to choose box two, or choose both. If it thinks that I am going to pick box two, and puts that million dollars in there. So if the computer is so intelligent, I would just pick box two.

    Even ignoring the thought experiment part of the video, $1000 is nothing to me, $1,000,000 would change my life. I’d rather take the odds of the million than a guaranteed thousand which I would immediately blow on something anyways (I’m good with my money, but when I get an unexpected large amount such as a bonus, I’ll spend it on something I wouldn’t normally get to enjoy it)

    This isn't a paradox I don't think. And don't ta is that simple, you do just choose box 2. Why? Because there is a 99+% chance you'll get a million. Remember that the super computer has never got a wrong choice, therefore, by choosing just the second box you will get 1000000 all the time. If you were to get nothing, th super computer would be wrong
