ABSTRACT. We want more than we can have. So we must somehow weigh our desires in order to determine which of them it is most important that we satisfy. All that an egoist of the present moment has to do is to introspectively ascertain these parameters, calculate (or intuitively estimate) the expected utility of the various choices, and then pick the one with the highest expected utility.
