so you wanna be a transformer...all hail *energon*
Kind of like The Phoenix + Jean Grey. I think states of Telekinesis + Telepathy would allow many exciting experiences and be able to sustain itself in many ways. I see it as freedom for passion. Actually we already have that to a degree with transference and physics. Ideally, I just want a varied way to adapt my passions to a myriad of controls over reality, as there would be only to gain in doing so.
You know, this is why I dislike Buddhism, even though I agree with a lot of their central ways of understanding reality. The Buddhists seem to believe that it is our passions that create harm - because from them can breed harmful expectations about reality and a harmful desire to control things that are beyond our control. By removal of these passions, one hopes to achieve a kind of contentment, through an elimination of suffering.
I see this as mistaken however, as passion gives meaning to life; it is not the passion I see that inherently causes harm then, but the misalignment of our passions with our control over reality. Desensitizing ourselves to reality is then like running away from life because we are running away from our passions; what would be better is to align our passions with what is within our control, as it is the attempt to control the world to our passions that seems to cause harm then, and not the other way around. Gaining control for the sake of giving our passions more to work with would be a good thing, but using our passions for the sake of gaining control is what can lead to disappointment, struggle, resistance, and thus suffering.
Or does Buddhism recognize this difference? I'm not sure...
My own form of a knight in shining armor where we both love and cherish each other for as long as we live. I yearn for someone to be my everlasting love. Building a family together, unifying both families together in caring relationships that will foster my future children's well-being, where they will be able to feel emotional stability, not need to fear abandonment, have their wildest dreams encouraged, showing compassion towards others and cultivated minds that discern truth.
