    That's the textbook definition, but check out my own as well!

    mastermind---noun: Ene [LOL...just had to do it!]
    A student said to his master: "You teach me fighting, but you talk about peace. How do you reconcile the two?" The master replied: "It is better to be a warrior in a garden than to be a gardener in a war." - unknown/Chinese

    Ultimate Masterminds can do anything they want to, just because they can (like my mountain moving example).

    So since you can do it as you say, that must (axiomatically [not necessarily empirically]) qualify you as a Mastermind!

    And I thought it was just the consciousness of someone who ruled or had authority over others, and if not others at least themselves.

    Control over oneself is the most important, and the only thing we truly insist upon, stereotypes and movie villains notwithstanding.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...
