'divine right'

slated in mused at 9:31 am

who do you love most in this world, or out of it?
who do you trust? who do you completely trust? who do you trust most?
what would you do if you were God, or had all the properties / powers / non-limitations of God?
if you had that absolute power, would you share it?

who is your foremost responsibility to? yourself? the person / people you love? to humanity in general? to the world in general?
with absolute / Godlike power, would you live for yourself—living your life as fully and thoroughly and self-fulfillingly as possible?
would you disregard your powers in the interests of preserving humanity as it is and has been?
would you dedicate your purpose and lifetime (eternity) toward reshaping the humanity and the world / universe in your best concepts of a utopia, or otherwise better existence?

btw.. i can’t imagine Max Faraday in Divine Right (though i’ve not seen or read a word of it yet) can really be omniscient. he should already know the consequences of his actions, then, shouldn’t he? as an entirely omnipotent being, does he still have the mind of a human? cuz he probably shouldn’t..
that’s probably why he’d run into so much conflict, actually. not that there wouldn’t be any, anyways, but having the total mind of a human but all the abilities of something more powerful… well… it’s like having an ant a roach a..cicada that’s the size of a… bus. the havock it would wreak, just doing its own thing, or even doing what it consciously believed was right…
at any rate, he (Max Faraday, or someone with all the powers of God) should have a deeper insight into everything and be able to think in the 10+ dimensions necessary and the infinite+ realities possible that his actions might influence.
at least the world keeps turning without him. that’s good.

would you share power?

would you keep anyone eternally safe?.. —from you?
: cont’d at ‘divine how absolute is absolute power?’...
