    Anything that transcends whatever it should have been. It could be any of those things, but if it started as one thing and the artist let it naturally evolve until it reached heights no one, not even the creator expected, then that is when it becomes special enough to be a favorite of mine. Of course, anything that I can consider transcending itself is subjective, so it's probably not what you're looking for. Sorry.

    For me it would be the complete mastery of mind and transcendental power of one's will to overcome any challenge and make any sacrifice to reach the crowning zenith of achievement!

    "The will is a world architect and composer, the will is a world power and mover. The world is shaped in the image of our wills and by the power of our wills. Will has essentially the nature of a force. Like all forces, will has a magnitude and a direction, and just like things move in the direction of the strongest force, things move in the direction of the strongest will. Whenever you loose something, you faced a greater will and were overpowered by it. If you want something to happen strongly enough, if the world wants something to happen strongly enough, then it is going to happen. The will is a creator. Will is a living organism, it grows and develops along with the individual. Weak individuals are characterized by a weak will or lack of will. Ill people are known by an ill will or a destructive will. Hence the presence and development of will is absolutely essential for personal and spiritual ascension. The key to the higher and diviner life is a strong and healthy will, a will to improve, a will to exceed, a will to life, but most importantly a will to ascend. The seed transforms into a flower by a will to ascend in the instrument. The will to ascend is an elevator to the higher levels of being, a key to unlock the higher potentials of life and a power to manifest them. I do want to climb a high mountain today!" ― Friedrich Nietzsche

    “Close your eyes and let the mind expand. Let no fear of death or darkness arrest its course. Allow the mind to merge with Mind. Let it flow out upon the great curve of consciousness. Let it soar on the wings of the great bird of duration, up to the very Circle of Eternity. If thou but settest foot on this path, thou shalt see it everywhere." ― Hermes

    If it is not true it is very well invented. What we each seek is the direction of our dreams. Though these concepts we create may not have a real immanence in existence, they should nonetheless serve us as guiding stars we can gaze to from across the horizon, ideals we can all aspire towards and follow. If we push our chase to the edge, places un-previously imagined in our time may shine with all promise as they progress from possibilities to present paths we will walk. The particular map I present in this program is a projection that can work for all people, as it allows for individuality and being your own true self.

    Novels are my favorite, especially fantasy/urban fantasy/paranormal romance. But I love a good story in nearly any form.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I used to like a lot of visual media, painting, carving, etc, and I still do, but I think my focus has turned more toward food recently. Learning new techniques, blending flavors, different pairings... and I really love plating too.

    Added side benefits:

    1. it is a more functional type of creation; you have to eat anyway
    2. the end product is ultimately consumed; there aren't any cluttery remains from the process (eat up or wash away)
    3. you can share with other people, which is added enjoyment

    I most appreciate "practical" place-art... design and decorating in particular... I love the creation of positive atmospheres for people to live and interact within. Gardens, meditation rooms, bedrooms, museums, hotels, convention halls, gathering places, stores, anywhere there is an opportunity to create a place of environmentally-friendly rejuvenating immersion. Plants, water, wood, trees, soft lighting, natural lighting, comfortable seating, freedom of movement. We were not born to be boxed in dirty backrooms.

    Which do we prefer as a user, or as a creator?
    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...

    That is funny, I totally interpreted it as "creator" - my answer would be quite different in terms of which I prefer to experience/consume.

    Well, it would be the same, plus more things, namely movies, TV shows, and music.
