But if one can control all aspects of life, where would the fun fit in? wouldn't if get meaningless after a while!
Only if you let it get that far. Sometimes the fun is in knowing that you could control everything but still let things run their own course. It's easy to get a God-complex and become the master manipulator, but it really does get old fast. It's complicated, always accompanied by the battle of good and evil. There's the burden of trying to fix everything that seems "wrong", trying to turn things to "good", or just not caring and doing what you please without a thought about what kind of an effect it has on everybody/thing else. There's loads of possibilities...*brain explodes*. Having that kind of power can become such a burden, so I'm sort of glad that it's impossible to obtain. But a part of me still wants it...
wow, that's complex.....for me the temptation would be too great, so I'll stick to flying which I think suits me because I like to people watch...its a hobby and I imagine I would look down upon the world beneath me and all the people.
And my answer remains the same. The human spirit and its potential/ability to endure hardship and pain, and to heal from and transform those hurts into a healthy, evolved state of being holds so much real life fascination for me. I would love to be able to heal creatures and plant life as well.
This concern with transformation and healing may reflect my heroic archetype, the magician. Among other things
